My creative space ...

My creative space this week has been mostly taken up with strategies for dealing with baby. As with most newborns, they like to be near, so I stole an hour the other night and whipped up this baby sling using instructions via the following site, Jan Andrea at home on the web. The pattern I used was the tube sling pattern and there is an excellent link to a PDF that talks about positioning baby in it.



Being a fabric hoarder, I had lots to choose from but decided on the lovely Ouka by Kokka in black and purple. It is a medium weight Japanese print and using it for something like this is a complete indulgence. But I figured if it didn't work out, I could chop it up for a quilt.

Have you ever self induged and made something for yourself from expensive fabric?

love the sling - not an indulgence, it will be your most worn accessory! Then it can become a quilt later for the memories ! Lovely
