A message from within....

There is something to be said for inspiration...

I was completely inspired by Suse's Winter Nest carrier, and promptly bought the red version of Kristen Dorans awesome print. I am still creating this beast - I want it to be really really special, putting love into every stitch.

This is the front, I have embellished the side panels (which is blonde pebble canvas) with a triple straight stitch with a pattern that mimics woodgrain.




This is the inner, with a poignant message that we, as parents, need to always be mindful of. I have freehanded this message on using a triple straight stitch. Every time I put baby into the carrier I will be reminded of what the universe has intended for that exact moment for us.



I should be actually putting this thing together today, in time for our International Babywearing Week festivities next week.

That's gorgeous Mel, inside and out. Just like its creator.

BTW, the birdies performed great magic today (and I am now wondering whether you have invisibly inscribed a similarly inspiring message on my birdies LOL), E and I were both in a total grump and not getting along very well at all, so up on my back he went, and he was happily asleep in ten minutes. He's NEVER fallen asleep on my back before!!! Utter magic!
