Receiving Blanket ALLTHETHINGS!

October 23, 2014 in Uncategorized by Kerri Darling

While I wait for my next shipment of flannel, I decided to make some receiving blankets for my little monsters.

They’re too big to be swaddled, but they love cuddling up in these. The little one took a nap with the Monster High blanket as soon as I finished it.

 

What I really like about these is that they’re bigger than the ones available in the store (almost twice as big!), and they’re prints I really like.

I’m back!

I did not actually fall off the side of the planet, it just seemed that way.

When I was gone from here I attended school year round while pregnant with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. That’s the proper term for having awful, feel-like-you’re-going-to-die all day morning sickness for an entire pregnancy. Daughter #2 was born last December, and I love her to pieces.

Being a mom to two little girls 3 and under while going to school is pretty time-consuming, but I love being able to kick back with some sewing whenever I get a chance.

So, i’m going to do a post covering some of the things i’ve sewed/made this past year.

I’m happy to be back, and i’m ready to post what i’m currently working on.

Some of the items i’ll be posting on here will be going up in my etsy shop, so keep your eyes peeled!

‘In Memory of Patrick’ Pacifier Clips

These pacifier clips were made in honor of Patrick James Doyle.
He passed away at 14 months to SUCD, the name for SIDS occurring in children ages 1 and older. His parents generously donated his corneas and heart valves to other children, including one recipient that was just a 4 day old newborn. His mother is currently donating her breastmilk.
There is no way to completely prevent SIDS, but the use of a pacifier has been shown in studies to reduce the risk. Pacifier clips are a great way to ensure that your little one has their pacifier nearby, and to keep it from falling on the ground when you’re out and about.
