Made For Baby Blog Tour

Today is my turn on the 'Made for Baby' blog tour! This sweet book was written by my friend Ayda, whose beautiful blog Cafe Nohut I have been a fan of ever since I started my own blogging journey! We finally met 'online' a few years ago and hit it off - and became fast friends since. She lives in Istanbul, Turkey, which is where I'm originally from so it's been really lovely to have someone who 'gets' what I do from my own homeland! So imagine how thrilled I was when my own publisher, Tuva Publishing, signed her up as one of their new authors!

Ayda's new book is full of projects for babies, and is suitable for all levels of sewists. It's packed to the brim with the cutest ideas, and inspirational photography (which is something Ayda absolutely excels at). I had the great pleasure and privilege to also do the technical editing of this book, which not only meant I got to see it before everyone else but also peruse it in great detail and learn lots of new techniques along the way! Lucky me!

The first project I want to share with you today is something I made with my new Sweet Prairie collection for my little stand at the St Louis Spring Quilt Market: a draw-string pouch. I added my own twist to it with the wooden ball decorations. So cute and so quick to make, and great for not only storing baby paraphernelia but sewing stuff too - when it comes back from the US I will be using it as a crochet project bag. I needed a new one! 

The second project I made from the book is a gift I made for a dear friend who just had an adorable and much longed for baby girl! This Peter Pan collar literally took me all of 15 minutes to make, and what a cute addition to any baby's outfit ! This will definitely become my go-to quickie baby gift to make going forward, that's for sure!

I hope you enjoyed my makes! If you would like to see other projects from the book please pay a visit to the other bloggers taking part in the blog tour - the full list is below. Also, Ayda is giving away a copy of her book (together with lots of cute notions) on her blog if you would like the chance to win one!
