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.
