DIY Baby Items






For babywearing:

Am trying to DIY a pouch and ring sling.Thanks alot to Jess and the monthly babywearer group gathering in Penang. Well, I can't sew yet, my mum help me on the pouch sling and I'm still haven't squeeze time to learn sewing the edge of the cloth for ring sling... Need to learn to sew straight line on cloth first...


For Breastfeeding:


-nursing cover


Also DIY nursing cover, I have 2 of them. Thanks alot to my mum... there are so many wonderful items can be made if only I know how to sew... :P


- nursing pillow - no photos yet as they are still in progress and yes I'm going to have 2 and made by mum... :)


- nursing clothes - will try to modified existing baggy clothes (for experiment) if really need to have them after the baby establish good latching on and mummy can be a moo by then.



For baby garment:




Completed knitting 3 wool longies and one baby vest...





Knitting in progress:

1) Another wool longies size M/L - 85% completed

2) Baby hoodie/cardigan - 80% completed

3) Baby hat

4) Toddler simple kimono - 55% completed but am afraid not enough yarn...

5) A cable vest for myself - guess this one will drag and on hold after No.2 comes out...


Just rememebr I got to clear the room's cabinet and wardrobe to make space for baby clothes and napkin. Limited space need a nice arrangement and clean up... that's why I'm so pack at this moment...

Oh ya... today I started to feel the belly tighten up, looks like baby is growing and the belly starts to expand. Got to monitor any extra stretch mark now...
