Living, Making, Doing :: A Countdown to Baby
Story time is getting pretty crowded around here.
The upstairs of our house gets pretty darn cold during the winter months and, while I have hope that this year may be better than previous ones, I knew I wanted to have a little extra warmth tucked away for Tiddle.
I followed the instructions for the Patchwork SleepSack from the book Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby by Anna Marie Horner but scratched the whole "patchwork" part of it. Instead, I found such a perfect fabric already in my stash! I lined it with flannel I was given earlier this year (in the EXACT amount I needed) and used leftover bits of bias tape, velcro and rick rack to complete it. FREE!
The biggles brought in the handmade cradle Matt made for our babies from the Granary.
I cried when we put it in there last year and I very nearly cried when we brought it back in.
