Sewing Night...

Last night I got out my shizzle and decided I would make a few things.

Here's what I came up with....

First up is this weird chicken like character, I had no direction and just made it up as I went along, and I think it shows lol, but it's cute and Esra appreciates it. :)

I also made one of these tag toys as I realised how much Esra appreciates and loves chewing on the labels of her toys. I used a variety of textures and even made the inside crinkly.
 

I made 3 tie bibs, initially they were squared off but I decided the triangular shape is much cooler. I used flannels on the inner section so that it's more absorbent.



While I was at it I made a nappy/diaper and wipes case as I have seen a few people with some and wanted in on it.


Lastly I made a little elasticated pocket to store some of Esra's toys so they don't get all muddled up in her toy box.


I must say it felt brilliant designing things in my head and sewing them, I haven't taken my sewing machine out since I was pregnant. I have decided I'm going to do sewing nights once a month from now on. Before anyone asks, I had the fabrics at home and some were even recycled scarves and tops.  

What would you make if you could sew?

I can't wait to get my sewing machine out again! You've reminded me how much I miss sewing. I can't wait to start making skirts again. I'm very tempted to try and make a waterfall skirt which are so popular at the mo... Might need some luck with that though!
You've sewn some really cute things :) xo

These are beautiful, you should make a shop selling things to mum's who love these homemade baby things - they have such a home & personal feel to them!

I can sew but if I got the hang of knitting I'd knit me a EDF energy flame toy lol! XO

Oh wow you are so talented, everything you made is absolutely stunning! The rag doll is one of the most adorable toys i have seen, plus i can imagine when Esra is all grown up, that toy will have such deep sentimental value.
