Baby Wrap for Friends

Hello Everyone. I have mentioned before on my blog that I am not just a card maker. Well today I am sharing photos of the Baby Wrap that I crocheted and the card that I made as well.

This was made for Matt and Amy some wonderful friends of my family who are expecting their first child – a baby girl – in Nov/Dec of this year.

It is made from a Variegated Cotton yarn for the main body of the wrap and a White Cotton Yarn for the edging. As this baby is going to be born at the beginning of our Australian Summer I wanted it to be useful both now and when it gets cooler.  The wrap is approximately 90cm squared and all done in Double Crochet stitch using a 5mm hook.

And this is also the card that I made for the baby shower.

I printed the background with a sentiment that has always been a favourite of mine. And I used an adorable elephant image from My Favorite Things Birdie Brown Adorable Elephants Stamp set and coloured him in with my Copic markers.

I had such fun making both of these. Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

This is so true. A bond between Mother and Child is a powerful one. I am lucky to be called Mum by two wonderful humans. They will always be and will always have my love.

Have a Happy Crafty Wonderful Kind of Day,

PS If your still lucky to have your Mum around give her a call! She will love hearing from you. This is the one thing that I did more often with my own Mum especially since we live so far apart from each other.

Hello Everyone,
I am sharing with you a card made by using a sketch and some of my stash. Here is a picture of the sketch #530 by Kel from Sketch Saturday:

This paper pack has been sitting in my 6X6 paper pad storage for ages. I love the designs but I wasn’t in love with using the full pages any more. And then this sketch from Sketch Saturday came in and I knew that this paper set would go well.

The bits of paper that were in the pack were the correct size or close to to pull off this design. Some of the pieces were big enough that I had enough to make a 2nd card which I will share in another post. 🙂 It is a simpler card but sometimes it is fun to make something a little simpler.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my post today. But before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought:

I have to be creative. It is how I unwind, how I connect with the past and how I connect with friends who understand this need as well.

Have a Happy Crafty Creative Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
