Boy and Girl

Lately I have been sewing for a new mummy, who gave birth to two adorable boy and girl twins. I visited her to the hospital and was able to see only the boy, due to the girl had to be put in the incubator.
I am sure she will be fine very soon and her parents can take her home with her brother, who, I am sure, he is missing her after sharing that tight room for 9 months.
I have already showed, in my last two posts, what I have been making for these adorable twins, so this is the final result.


Grey is the colour II

Look at the nice baby bibs I made to match with the hooded towel I showed you in my last post.
I used to use the same pattern for all my baby bibs, which comes from the book "Bend-the-Rules". This time I have not used that one, but The Spit Bib pattern I got from "Sew Much Ado" for free!

Now that I mention certain sewing books, I am just loving this one I got for Christmas.

Grey is the colour

I think I have an obsession with grey colour: the walls at home, the linen and if you look at my wardrobe I have all kind of clothing in that colour: sweaters, dresses, a coat, a pair of boots, socks, etc.
And talking about future mommies a have around me I made this hooded towel for a baby who is coming very soon. Neither pink nor blue, I think pale grey is the colour that suit babies most without regard the sex. Many people associate grey with sadness but for me is calm and serenity.
Since it was the first time I made a hooded towel, this tutorial was a great help! The lovely baby gift baskets Lidia makes are also a great source of inspiration, aren't they?
