You might have been hearing about the newest book in the series of the One Yard Wonders series, Little One Yard Wonders. It’s a whole book of projects for you and your children, but also a handy resource for a range of home crafted baby gifts.
I’m hosting a little giveaway here to celebrate the launch of the book, as I have two projects featuring in the book. To participate, just leave a comment below telling me what your tried and true USEFUL gift for a little one is by June 30, 2014. Absolutely leave a link to any blogged make as well if you have one. Make sure to leave an email address or way to contact you, and a winner will be selected at Random. Storey Publishing will then send you a copy of the book directly!
These are two tried and tested projects, as my own pram liner is still on my pram nearly three years later (and in dire need of a wash), and I’ve given many a nursing cover to new Mums that want a little privacy while still working out this breastfeeding caper (after sussing out if this is something they would want and use).
Having kids really spurred on my creative sewing as I had the time to think about sewing, construction and buying fabric (fabric.com emails come in the middle of the night…many boxes of fabric were ordered in the wee hours of the night). Primarily I was irritated and motivated that simple, useful things like a nursing cover cost $50 in a store here. Time to DIY like a boss.
Have a sneak peek at the lovely professional pics of my projects from the book, with the photos taken by Julie Toy.
