My daughter loves things that make a noise especially that crinkly noise that you find in soft toys. I found this fab make http://www.craftstylish.com/item/45013/how-to-make-a-felt-baby-toy-with-a-crinkly-crackly-recycled-surprise which shows you how to make a cute owl using felt and recycling all those things your baby loves to crinkle and grab hold of. Also love this owl from http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-to-felt-owl.html will probably make an owl combining the two designs as I love elements from both.

This gorgeous Butterfly mobile looks so simple yet effective. This will be my next make for Mia. Here is where you will find a lovely tutorial on how to make one. And the best bit is anyone can make it. http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-to-butterfly-mobile.html
I have started to make my daughters Christmas present and am so excited, I just hope that I can make it half as good as this lovely lady. The pattern was purchased from http://www.bitofwhimsydolls.com/ and if the doll goes well I shall be making lots of clothes and accessories for it, so shall be purchasing lots of patterns. Here is my doll so far, now for the tricky bit as I have to start sewing all the bits together. The pretty fabric next to the doll I am going to use to make her dress from. Wish me luck and lets hope the sewing machine behaves itself

Thanks to this fantastic blog http://shabbyblogsblog.blogspot.com/ my blog is now looking beautiful and ready to go. Now that I've finished work for my maternity leave I need something to keep myself busy. So here is my inspiration, ranging from gift bags to sock creatures.
