List or show off your crafts/buys


Not that I'm condoning this sort of behaviour at all

So far I have:

A safari mobile, made by me (pics to come)
3 Primark sleeveless onesies which I have ironed appliques on to (iron-on robots and an iron-on sheep)
A little green shirt with a whale on it from Mothercare
The book We're Going on a Bear Hunt
The Hungry Caterpillar
A pop up book called Frog in the Bog
Plastic bath toys
Plastic sandpit toys
Loads of fabrics to make quilts/playmats/bibs/clothes etc with!

Who can beat me?

I've been meaning to take pictures of my stash, so I just went and unpacked it all and took some

This is long, you've all been warned!

One of my favourites.




More favourites (& some random socks ).


Close up of panda that hides in the pocket






12-18 months:

Tots bots nappy & wrap and mothercare wraps.


Nappy liners, muslin cloths etc.


Blankets.


Bedding etc.




I also have a changing mat and a breast pump, but I don't think anyone needs pictures of those!

Oh my gosh what an awesome stash! I love your little 3-6 sleeper with cars and buses, and your panda PJs, and just all of it! The red dress! I have a secret place for my stash but it's getting full...I daren't buy any more because we're moving house soon and it might be found! Your stash has convinced me that maybe booties could be easily hidden.

Sometimes I get my onesies out and just sit there looking at them and imagining. We're awesome baby crazy mums-to-be!

Wish I could buy some cloth nappies. My partner thinks being excited about nappying is so freaking weird.

Just made my first newborn onesie (one with the trains and cars) It still needs a fastener and some tidying up (I'm not the best at sewing) but apart from that it only took me half an hour It looks absolutely teeny but it's super stretchy fabric so unless I have a monster baby it should be ok.

The ones next to it I've just sewed pretty things on to.

Most of the things I'm attracted to are considered more for boys, but gender or buying certain coloured clothes really doesn't bother me. I'd love to buy some dresses but they're the one thing I wouldn't unisex! But boys in pink/girls in blue is totally fine with me.

Go for it! Much easier than I thought and I'm really no good at sewing yet (only got my machine last month) I just traced around one I already had for the pattern! Might actually buy a pattern for different things like rompers though.

Thanks! My stash has its own wardrobe Bootees can definitely be easily hidden! They were the first things I ever bought.

Haha, I have moments like that too! I like unpacking it all sometimes and just looking at it

I got mine on freecycle, so it was too good to pass up really! Haha, I'm not sure how my OH feels about me wanting to cloth nappy. I'm obsessed with them at the moment though, I haven't done much research on them before, so that's keeping me busy at the moment (when I should be revising, obviously )!

Wow, the onesie you made looks great! Especially for a first attempt. I love your fabrics too, the dino one will make a great playmat.

So, I've probably gone mad, but I've decided to make some cloth nappies over summer. I really want to do lots of crafts over the summer, so figured I may as well combine it with my new found obsession I've been watching tutorials and doing some research and it doesn't look too complicated. I want to make AIOs with a hidden PUL layer, so I'm going to have to be super careful making them. Looking for cute fabrics now

I have some super cute fluff in the mail! Baby shopping eases the pain of the wait, even if I do feel insane...at least they were good deals!
