This photo of Miss O is from months ago (sniff) but it was so adorable I wanted to share again. In this photo you can see her sporting an awesome wrap snuggly thing...made with ALL Anna Maria Horner of course.
I made it when Miss L was a baby and it is truly amazing. My only wish is that I had it for all three babes. It alleviated the frustration of refolding a swaddling blanket at 4am in the morning, they needed their arms contained or they woke themselves up hitting themselves in the face, plus it allowed the baby a snug wrap they could grow into - one size fits all. Unfortunately, I did a search and it looks like the Etsy shop I bought the pattern from is no longer around! Only this Flickr group seems to still exist...
When my girlfriend found out she was pregnant I just had to make her one! Excuse the wrinkled photos, I had already folded it for wrapping and was storing it in my sewing room pre-photo shoot!
The original pattern was a little rough and left all the edges raw. It always bothered me on my swaddler so I decided to upgrade the pattern a little and properly finished the edges topstitches and all.
I used the rolled hem foot on my Juki for the first time. It was AMAZING! I am going to pretty much use it for everything possible now... S-e-w e-a-s-y.
Yup - creepy baby doll photo. Had to be done.
And now it is all gifted up for my friend who I hope will wear it out with all the baby love in the world!
Thank goodness it is FRIDAY!
