New Baby Set

Hello, well I've finally sewn up my pink and white baby set. It has little stocking leggings, a pinafore, a white jumper and a hat. It is knitted in double knitting acrylic wool so is easily washable. Sewing in the ends was a labour of love but I do like the striped leggings. The hat has a ribbon trim that can be tied to tighten to fit.

I'm now sewing up the same set but in a lilic and white colour combination.

I went to Ikea on Saturday for some more material for when I start sewing some cushions. It wasn't the usual Ikea that we have been to before and this one was huge. Is was so big we got lost! lol Anyway after using my pathfinding skills we found the material section. A few of the ones I wanted weren't stocked so was a bit disappointed but the material I did get was very reasonably priced and feels really good quality. It was novel having to cut my own pieces, not done that before. After having the material weighed and priced the girl said we just had to take it to the tills. Easier said than done lol!! After what seemed like a 26 mile marathon and three floors we finally found the tills lol. I loved loads of the items in there but was definately all shopped out by the time we reached the exit.! I've seen two lovely book shelves that I want in pine to go in my new craftroom.

Hubby said that I can have the back bedroom instead of the boxroom that I have at present because well as a crafter I am sure you will understand there is just not enough room in my boxroom. He says that he will put all his games and videos in the boxroom instead. So now I want to redecorate the back bedroom add a couple of bookcases, get rid of the single bed in there which is not used anymore and maybe put a daybed in there. Well I can dream for now as I will have to save the pennies up first. Anyway the big move is this weekend hopefully so I will have more room to set up my sewing machine.

Hope you like the piccies.

See you soon. Craftchick


  1. Cute set!

    I know what you mean about Ikea. I don't drive so there isn't one I can get to easily, but my mum often takes me when I go north to see her. Thing is, like you, I tend to get a little lost. And I also tend to end up with things I never meant to buy!

  2. I spend a fortune in Ikea, everytime i try and limit myself but it never works :D

    I'm moving my craft room this weekend too, how uncanny.

    Love the outfit by the way, its beautiful :)
