During the Christmas – New Year break I spent a lot of time looking at many new patterns & ideas for things to make for the Nittens & Patches shop. There are so many great ideas out there it is hard to narrow in down , but here are some things I’m working on right now.
Precious Patterns have a some of the cutest patterns & ideas for BIB’S I have ever seen. I have all of them saved on my wishlist & plan to add them over the coming year so keep an eye out for them. The one pictured below in just a sample of some of the first ones I’m trying. They have cute animal face appliqués on them which have been hand embroidered on using blanket stitch & the features on the face are hand embroidered too 🙂
CHILDREN’S TOTE/BOOK BAG are also on the list. They are made from poly/cotton for easy care & the base has been reinforced for durability. These also feature hand embroidered appliqué – designed by ME! As soon as I can get to Adelaide for more supplies, I will be increasing the colour range.
Another pattern from Precious Patterns are these adorable WATER BOTTLE COVERS. They have a strap to make it easier to carry & I have used thermal wadding to help keep drinks cooler on a warm day.
My dad’s wife is always looking for ideas for me of things people would like to buy. She is always giving me great ideas & suggestions. One of these suggestions is an ART SMOCK. I found this Hadley Grace Designs art smock at ‘You Can Make This‘. There are 2 sizes 12 months to 2 years & 3 years to 5 years.
