Make Your Own Baby Wipes

diy baby wipes from little button diaries 1

… because you can! And they’re easy. Only three ingredients and ten minutes required. The good thing about making your own is that you know what goes in them, you can choose to add baby friendly essential oils and you can tailor them to your own child’s delicate little bottom. I found this tutorial from Ouroutofsynclife.com which I used for inspiration. Heres how you do it:

Fabric Baby Quiet book

I am really happy to say I’ve finally finished a project that I have been working on for the last year. Well, that’s not technically true. To be honest, I got stuck on a bit and put it into my sewing bag – out of sight, out of mind – for four months. I have a bit of a habit of doing that. But its finished now, hoorah! My Fabric baby activity book.

DIY Fabric Cot Tidy

cot tidy 1

Its nice to have a little place to store the little toys and things you need for bedtime, so I decided to make a very simple cot tidy to hang on the side of Amelie’s bed. I’ve seen a few in baby shops and they always seem pretty basic to make.

So I took a piece of thick canvas (measuring about 75x50cm) and sewed bias binding all the way around to neaten the edges. I also made 4 strips of the binding for the ties and sewed these to the top corners.

wobbly soft toy tutorial

Yesterday I found the remains of a broken soft vibrating toy that got eaten by a mouse a few months back (I know! Finding a pile of destroyed nibbled toys is not a fun moment…). Inside was a little plastic box that shakes when you pull the string. I also had some soft fabric from a baby grow I had when I was little, so I thought I’d try and make Amelie a little cuddly wobbly toy.

Nap Time Crafts: DIY Baby’s Bib

I was on the look out for some new bibs the other day (my existing ones have become so ground in with food I’m embarrassed to bring them out in public!) and whilst looking at one in a shop it struck me how easy it would be to make my own. I have so much fabric lying about that needed using up… So I thought I’d try it on a spare scrap.
