Babyscanart - Those pics are gorgeous!
Ah thank you my lovely! Really sweet of you x
I made another blanket today, but instead its a Pram/pushchair size one and not out of baby clothes either, just pure patchwork squares.. not sure that I've got the pattern right as I've never done the full on pattern patchwork blankets before. But here it is...
The blanket looks great. I love the owl print fabric!! You've done really well with it, only time I've tried patchwork the squares didn't line up right and yours are perfect!!
Been making these little earrings recently, they're so easy but I think they're dead cute and funky.
the blanket looks brill, it doesnt matter if you dont follow the pattern exactly, most of the time it still turns out right and sometimes better cos youve added your own spin on it!
i made a crochet tombliboo ooo https://mammymade.blogspot.com/2011/08/crochet-tombliboo-ooo.html
made this knotty fleece blanket today for baby
Lots of creative and clever people! I have just got a sewing machine as an early Christmas present so I am looking forward to getting started!
that Tombliboo is awesome!!
I do all sorts of crafty bits, but my main hobby is renovating vintage coach built prams ... including the pram sets, canopies, matching pram bags and so on
But here are a few of my recent creations ....
Kaylum's Cot Quilt ... he actually has two of these and they are all in one, so the 'duvet' bit qets washed each time too
Kaylum's 'Fire Buggy' ... basically a pram LOL but made more boyish - he pushes Fireman Sam around in it when he isn't sitting in it himself
And Taylor's customised Silver Cross ... this was an old and very battered black pram that I used for my own children. I've stripped it down to bare metal, re-painted it, re-lined the inside, re-covered the hood and apron and made a quilt, support pillow and sun canopy to match.
I'm halfway through a 1940's one at the moment that I'm turning into a Forever Friends pram
TattiesMum the silver crosses are fabulous you could make a lot of money doing those if you could find a good supplier of the old prams!
LOL ... I have 5 of them already in various stages of refurbishment I think my DH would kill me if I found an even more regular supply
Every time Tattie takes Taylor out in the pink one she gets stopped by people who want to know where they can get one ... and when they are customised and all re-done they do fetch a lot of money. The trouble is that they actually aren't that cheap to do ... paint stripper, sandpaper, primer, paint, lacquer, wadding, vinyl for lining, hood and apron fabric all adds up and if anything needs re-chroming then it gets really expensive.
Rather than selling them (I get attached to them ) I'm planning on seeing if I can hire them out for people to use at weddings and christenings or for photo shoots
omg it amazing Marie
I love this pram ... I pushed all 3 of my babies in it and now my Granddaughter is being pushed in it too
so glad i found this thread i love making bits for little girl mainly hairbows and clips but trying to make some ruffly bloomers as well.
do you do other peoples prams at all!!!!!
i have a silver grosvenor and i would love a new hood, relined and new apron.
I've been doing some felt Christmas Decorations and will upload pics when I get some time. I've been hoping to learn more about sewing but have no idea where to start, if anyone here has any suggestions they'd be most welcome!
Also can anyone suggest a reasonably priced good sewing machine that's fairly easy to learn how to use? I may look into getting one at some point.
