Clearly, such events need to be celebrated, so accordingly I made a few gifts!
The dress is from this tutorial. I used red and blue cotton and a fancy machine stitch for my top stitching. The buttons are adorable wooden ones painted with flowers.
I decided to run up a nappy cover to match and went with this tutorial. I used more blue cotton and did a few lines of the fancy stitching across the bottom. The elastic was a little fiddly to thread, but I managed in the end!
Lastly, these little shoes, which I found instructions for here. I made these the first night we thought labour was about to happen, as I was waiting for the call to go look after Small Bean. In the end it didn't happen for another 5 days and Small Bean and I had a very enjoyable Saturday together!
