Neices Baptism pressie

Well I hadn't bought my neice a present for her baptism this weekend so I whipped up a little something:

Three burp cloths made from quilters cotton and bamboo towelling, two bibs made from the same, one of which also has minky (and snaps to make a scoop) to match the AIO minky nappy with applique. The AIO also has internal gussetts and is gorgeous. I am going to have trouble saying goodbye to this lot!

I have been trialling the nappies I made for Isla and they work beautifully. I will have to make another minky AIO like that abovefor her using other minky I have here, if I can get my other projects (pics to come next week...I hope) finished!

Also, I got a new overlocker and I LOVE it. So much better than my crappy old singer which is now gone. YAY!

Well my little princess finally arrived (see here). But before she was born I managed to make a cotton jersey wrap which I am loving:

I have a some more woven cotton fabric I plan to make another one out of for summer but my overlocker just died whilst making some wipes so I need to get a new one. I was also planning on making anouther pouch because I've been using my current one fir the shops because it is so easy but I think I will keep the fabric for something else (or make the wrap and give it away/sell it). Currently finishing off some knitting and waiting for my new overlocker.....
