Riley weighed 2.53 kg (5 lb 9 oz) and was a week early.
I knitted these little booties the day our daughter told us we would be grandparents.
In between all my usual quilting, for the last 5 or 6 months I have been busy knitting, crocheting and sewing for the baby.
These are some things I have made.
A crocheted wrap in pure wool.
A hooded jacket in moss stitch using a bamboo and wool yarn.
A cable beanie in bamboo and wool blend and a striped beanie in Geelong colours from a bamboo and cotton blend. (Riley's Dad follows Geelong in the Australian Football league, so a Geelong football jumper won't be far away!!)
As my daughter was in labour I kept myself busy making these booties.
Plenty of sewing too!
Baby wraps. Just a metre of flannelette from Spotlight with a decorative stitch on the hem.
A little minkie rabbit. Pattern from the Spring Bunny tutorial on Sew Mama Sew (pattern originally from Lorraine of Ikat Bag)
A divided basket. Pattern from Noodlehead.
A nappy bag. This pattern is the Aeroplane Bag from Sew Sweetness.
There are zip pockets on each side..
I made one modification to the pattern and added patch pockets to each side. ( a bit hard to see with the same fabric!)
Lastly, of course I made a quilt!!! :)
This quilt was inspired by a quilt I saw on Jan's blog, Be*mused. Jan made a quilt for her niece Kate's baby, Alice. A quilt for Alice. This photo says it all!! :)
Rita of Red Pepper Quilts has a tutorial for Economy blocks (or square in square blocks) here.
My daughter and I had fun choosing fabrics!
It is simply quilted in the ditch.
Today I will make the label for this quilt.
Little Riley Duncan is the light of our lives!
