More newborn gifts



Today I spent the afternoon with my best friend and her newest family member, little Scarlett Eve, only 4 days old! She is soooooo tiny and petite in every way, but simply adorable all the same. She felt like a feather after holding my 11kg girl!



Both her and her hubby loved the baby sling I made them:
There was a small cosmetic flaw in the canvas I used on the waist strap, which I only noticed AFTER I'd finished stitching it on. So I improvised and covered it with a quick tag with Scarlett's name and birthdate. It sits just past the knot when you tie the sling on (Maddy modelled it for them while Scarlett slept).
Love a neatly folded sling shot!


And there were a few ooohs and aahs over this little set:




My friend couldn't stop patting this super soft milo vest made from Sirdar Juicy DK, a luxurious bamboo/cotton mix:




Welcome to the world little Scarlett!

Scarlet does look very beautiful. What gorgeous gifts you have made for her too, beautiful colors. I love the milo vest, it will keep her very warm in the cooler months wont it. The little set is just so cute too!

They are beautiful, I just love the name Scarlett. I love the fabric you used on the singlet and shoes and would love to know what it is.

The fabric is something I picked up at JoAnns in the US. I bought it to make something pretty for Maddy for spring/summer but thought it safe to cut into it for these since it hardly took anything to do the butterfly on the onesie and make those tiny shoes.

Sue - I made the newborn size Milo vest, and since it's bamboo/cotton it's pretty much an all seasons knit. The weather we are having at the moment is quite strange, warm one day, freezing and raining the next so I thought she'd get more wear out of a cooler fibre, plus it is extreeeeeeemly soft so perfect for newborn skin on it's own or over a top! Ops - I think I said that already ;)

Joy your blog is looking beautiful.

And so are all the pressies you made for Scarlet. You could sell all of those on Etsy no worries. Maybe in a few years when you've got some time up your sleeve, eh? Your friend must have been thrilled. What beautiful pressies to receive.
