So here's another project from the nest, friends.
I wanted to create some special 'thank you' gifts for my wonderful midwives. This time I set to work before the baby came (since I got a sweet 'scolding' from my midwife for creating her previous gift after our first baby Azriel was born! Something along the lines of 'you should be resting, Mel!). I can't help it.. I love to create - especially for lovely people in my life!
Having two 'primary midwives' meant making double the fun. This was the feather hoop I stitched/sketched up for one of them. I also made a fabric gift bag for this and one of my pottered mugs, (etc) to tuck in to.
This nest hoop is for my other lovely midwife, to represent the members of their home. I attempted sewing a version of this felt 'rose' bowl from Pinterest... but it was a flop (literally).. and required me to tie the bowl up around her pottered mug.
So, these were some of the crafty perks to having a slow-coming baby...
more time to create while I waited.
I guess this boy knows his mama well.
I'm very grateful for these wonderful women who guided me all along the way of being pregnant, labouring and caring for these babies in our nest.
I heart midwives.
