Pram/Picnic Blanket for Rosemary

A few months back I met Rosemary in my doctors surgery. My daughter had a fever and we had to get her to the doctors.

Rosemary had noticed the Tartan pram blanket I had made for my daughter after a picnic trip to the Convent in Abbotsford, she wanted to know where I bought it. I told her to ring me in a week and I would tell her a price. And so .. she did, I sourced the materials and made it for her. Rosemary was very patient as she waited for her products. I rang around and couldn’t get a hold of some red stuart tartan, so got some black stuart and lined it with some red polar fleece.

The Pram/Picnic Blanket opens out and then you “fold” the baby into it. The nylon straps gives you some flexibility on how you can wrap them up. For example, my daughter does not like her feet covered. So I can wrap her up tightly and leave her toes peeping out the bottom.

Once the straps are unclipped, it is easy to get your baby in and out of the pram.

Army Boy

A friend’s son had his first birthday, so I made a bib set from some “boy” fabric that I had. Both items have a waterproof lining sewed into them.

Urban Tiger

Introducing … my first official sale and the happy customer (with receipt!).

First Customer

The “Urban Tiger” Bib has a waterproof lining so that when bubs drools, it doesn’t go completely through to the other side. The back side of the bib is an absorbent terry toweling so that the bib can be used to mop up spills before going into the wash. Snaps at the back rather than velcro which can sometimes irritate delicate skins.
