baby gifting

I saw this really cute baby toy for you to sew from Lottas baby book and really wanted to try it.
It looked simple enough that my chances of success were pretty high. I like the way it came out, but I think it would have been better if I knew how to turn it into a rattle for real.
Also, while I had the sewing machine out, I made this dress for Phoebe. Of course she adores it, but I am just okay again, without a pattern.
I'm hoping to get some more stuff done, but I must remember not to sew when babies are awake.


  1. I so love that dress! I might have to copy it for the Haze.

  2. I love the dress and I love the toy. :)

  3. oh I hear ya! (on the sewing when babies sleep!)
    I've been itching to get sewing dresses and summer clothes for Nova, but find myself too sleepy when they are sleeping, and too busy when they are awake... :) Nice work momma.

  4. Definitely the case over here.
