This is my first attempt to make a soft block for my baby. First one was total failure, second one is better. But the third version was the best. So I decided to do a small tutorial to make things easier for you. Here it is: DIY baby play block tutorial. The picture shows the second and third soft blocks. The first one is gone with the wind :)
It is not difficult to make new slippers once you start making them. The first time is not easy but after that you can not stop :) This was a joke although the truth is not far away. These slippers are made for newborn up to six month old baby. It depends on size of the baby. My four month old baby can still wear them.
This is my first baby dress ever. First, I had doubts about making this dress for my little baby's baptism because all the family will be there. But then I found a nice pattern, gorgeous material and there was no escape :) It was fun making it, and now I will continue making more dresses. The pattern is pretty simple and sewing also is not complicated. One extra item is a little hat with small flower in front :)
The perfect timing is not important, this baby slippers can be worn from 3th to 6th month. It means baby months, not from March to June ;) Although it is Spring, sometimes the temperatures can surprise us and this slippers can be very useful. Me and my baby can't wait to try them on. It might be even tomorrow :)
It was impossible to stop creating new animals. So I continued with a fish. The differenece from before is that fish eyes and mouth were created using embroidery. Different faces are created, on one side the fish is nice and on the other side is bad. It is actually interesting to change moods as pleased just by changing one side to another.
Last night I had chance to browse through a great store where you can buy chidren toys. It was amazing, most of the toys are made of wood and colored into many different colors. To be honest I wanted to have some of those toys for myself. Also there were some dolls made of different materials. It inspired me into trying to make one of my own. So I made a pattern that looks like giraffe and sewed my first toy. While browsing for more, one blog poped up as an total inspiration for more, so if you like to sew try making for your children something like this: Taggie animals. Enjoy!
