Bitty Booties for a pressie

I stambled across this amazing pattern, when I begun to feel frustrated because my machine stopped working and I had no time to take it to a repair shop...  I decided to be productive and find a project to get my hands on....  And I believe it is a very nice one indeed.

A nice project if you have some spare time and need to make a present...
 
You can get the free patterns here
And inspiration here

You will need 2 contrasting colours of felt... you will need maybe an A4 of the base dolour and an A5 of the "detail" colour... from the link below you can download for free two sizes 0/3 months and 3/6months The details i added tried to be seaweed ...because i love it... to eat it, of course, but also to look at how it moves in the water too....

Felt toys


And another great website with more patterns to make toys. This time in felt...

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Saint Martins art shop (In Farringdon) and bought some felt "to try"... (it seems to have become trendy in accessories and lets face it, every time i see something I cant stop thinking how could i do the same rather than buying...)


The best thing about felt is that it is not too expensive, has a great consistency and you can glue it as well as sew it....

Fabric Baby Grab Ball

A great idea if your friends, like mine, begin to have babies....



Cute and practical as you can wash it too. And I am thinking that to be honest, could be even better if you add curiosity stimulations:



crinkling paper,
little bells inside,
maybe some towel texture...



Once I complete a couple of other bits I am busy with... I will definitely have a go for my niece...

Free teddy pattern



I remember talking to my friend Anja when she explained to me that finding a good teddy bear pattern could be difficult...

And so, since I found this one, absolutely gorgeous you might say, I thought could be nice to share it with all who wanted it....
