Getting Fleeced

It's newborn central around these parts. So I needed to get inspired to come up with some Loz and Dinny newborn booty. I have loved this fleece for so so long. I have stroked and caressed lovingly. So it seemed the perfect choice for some new wee baby boys and girls ... Loz made me a whole stack of fleecy cotton wraps when Edie was born - I loved them - she made them extra large so she was all wrapped up cocoon snug. Winter babes get it good, huh? I am very excited about how they turned out ... a cheeky afternoon sew in, chez Loz and Dinny with Mrs Smith and the Craft Princess knocked them on the head. Actually it was more a sewing intervention - Mrs Smith had been hand sewing her quilts ... she had a sewing machine sitting there - it was just a little scary ... she was unsure how you did it ... so the Princess and I organised an intervention ... Mrs Smith embraced firmly ... and walked out with two awesome cushions tucked under her arm - mission completed.
PS the brown dots in the background are actually newborn sized bias binding bibs ... they went in the pressie too!

They are so lovely!! I think Winter babies are lucky too, to have the chance to knit and sew for new babies is wonderful!!!

See, I wouldn't mind a little fleecy birdie cocoon for myself this blustery day. Would it be too evil to push in front of the newborns and request an adult-sized commission?

Yum-o fabric! Lucky babies. I've been overdosed with pink, which doesn't suit Tamsyn - or me for that matter! Just because she's a girl doesn't mean she has to wear pink!! A little bit is fine but not everything.

Sorry, shouldn't be venting like this on your blog....

Do you do adult sized fleecy cocoons too?

At last !! Someone who understands that bibs must be in a baby-food colour-combo .... in a super chic way , of course , like yours . As for the fleecy cocoons ... everyone needs one of those , a cup of hot chocolate and DVD of choice for winter evenings .

Hi G! Sorry I missed the big event last night... since I saw you on Friday I have been knocked out by the big bad flu. It seems to be lingering and lingering. I was hoping to be better in time, but in the end just went to bed. I will beat this, I will! Catch up with you soon. :-)
