I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

Handmade Monday

More sewing! Regular readers will know that I have a small, not making a penny at all, business making baby gros for my friends children.  I've made lots and lots now, mostly for friends, but also occasionally for strangers.  I had a stall at a Christmas Fair last year, and I'm hoping to have another this year.  It's fun, and it does feel like I'm doing something completely removed from teaching; I do like my job, but sometimes it would be really nice to do something that fits around the children, rather than the children fitting in with what I do.  Anyway.

Made for Matthew's christening.

A baby controller; the first was made for an Ava, and I embroidered her name over the red buttons, this one was made for an as yet unborn baby, so no name.

Made for Karen's niece.  Nice and easy to sew, so always a winner.

My facebook page is here.  For all your baby gro needs.


  1. I love your baby gro's! Such a simple yet wonderful way of giving a personlised gift. No wonder they are popular!

  2. They are adorable, I can see why they're so popular.

  3. Enjoy the summer holiday!! Love the baby gro's. Jo x

  4. These are absolutely adorable, I'd certainly love one for my baby so there is no wonder that your friends gratefully receive them.
