More baby makes!
I made this handy wall hanger to put nappies, wipes and other useful baby toiletries in. The doll motif is from a pattern in my 1970s "St Michael Book of Handicrafts". I love vintage home craft books as they have loads of ideas and inspiration. The fabric I used is a mixture from "by Graziela" and some of my own.
I crocheted this Miffy doll after I found a free pattern on the internet. I also found loads of other free patterns for baby stuff including hats, shoes, dresses etc just by searching the web...very useful when I'm expecting twins! I've included pics of everything I've made so far below.
I sewed these tiny new born size dresses from my own fabric, which is available from my Spoonflower shop.
I made these slippers from pieces of leather I bought from a local shop which sells beautiful handmade shoes. These were also from free patterns on the internet, the larger blue ones I made for my 4 year old son and they are lined with really soft sheep fleece at the bottom (also used to line the pink crocheted mary jane slippers above).
Last of all some cosy hats for the winter!
