XXL pleather bumblebee

With baby girl in my life, it’s a wonder if I have time to make something, so when I do, I don’t necessarily have time to make pictures of blog about it. Here’s a overview of things I’ve made the last couple of months.

Bumble Bee

I finished this bee 2 hours before my water broke! Great timing :).
I added a squeaker insert from this shop to the body.

The pattern is from FrugalHaus.com, but it contains many mistakes.

Pleather Mary Jane’s

Too bad I only realized after making these that fake leather = pleather = PVC leather or else I would have never made these. Ugh, I thought PVC wasn’t used in consumer products anymore… :-/.

Pattern drafted with help of this tutorial. Getting both to look the same was the hardest part. Also at first they reminded me of unflattering wooden shoes. They never stayed on very well, they kept slipping off, even though I think they were fitted pretty well, so she never wore them that much.

XXL Changing Mat

Public changing tables are gross. With an transatlantic flight scheduled, I knew I had to make a real big mat so my baby wouldn’t be able to touch anything. The mat is 25×30″ (64x76cm). The back is PUL (polyurethane laminate), so waterproof. Pretty nice, if she decides to soil the mat, which happened more than a few times already.

Let’s not look too long at the crooked front. Not sure how it happened…again.

Tutorial by HowJoyful, although I made the mat bigger.

Dachshund Sam

Pattern: Teckeltje Sam (free) by Stip & Haak

I used lovely DMC Natura 100% cotton for this toy, bought at Boekblad in Maarssen.

I need to find a better way to attach the head as it keeps being ripped off, haha. I made the toy especially to fit a larger rattle insert, only to find out…it didn’t fit. I ended up inserting 2 rattles, so it makes more noise.
