It's a while ago I blogged for the last time. Sometimes it's hard to be pregnant, feeling sick and tired and not creative at all. Right now I'm 7 months pregnant, much better with quite a big belly and feeling more creative than before. I will show you what I have made for my baby...

|Eentje in roze/ One in pink|
|De andere met roze en groen/ the other one in pink and green|
It was quite a relief how much work it was, it wasn't hard at all for this patchwork-fresh(wo)man! First I searched for nice cotton fabrics (Tilda, the Boerenbonthal in Amsterdam). Then I cut squares of 16x16 cm.
|Katoenen stofjes/ cotton fabrics|
I made a pattern first, so the colours looked nice with each other.
|Welke stof komt waar?/ which fabric will be where?|
I sewed them all together on my sewing machine, with a very small stich.
|Banen maken en aan elkaar naaien/ Sewing the fabrics together|
|Sew baby sew!|
For batting I chose 100% cotton, which is more air releasing for a baby and lighter to be under. And for the backside I also chose 100% cotton fabrics.

En kijk eens naar de resultaten...
And look for the results...
|De roze deken / the pink blanket|
|Met bloemenstof aan de achterkant/ with flowers on the backside|
|De roze en groene versie/ the pink and green one|
|Met een linnenkleurige achterkant/ With a more beige cotton look|
I'm proud of my own sewings. I liked it a lot making them, so I now also make patchwork curtains for my little daughter-to-be. And I even think about selling them in my webshop. But that will be after giving birth... What do you think? Like them?
