Time for a little change...


A friend of mine is expecting to have her baby any minute today - its a boy!
Which is quite ironic as she is one of 4 girls and this is the fourth boy to be born to two of the sisters.

I missed her baby shower but am catching up by making her a few small gifts.

Mum and I found this adorable laminated fabric at Peter Jones this weekend and knew it would be perfect for a changing mat:


I used these sweet yellow chickens as my coordinating fabric on the other side:


Added a thin layer of batting to provide some comfort from hard surfaces.
Trimmed it all off with matching green bias binding...and chose an Incomparable mother hen button as the closure:


Now just going to go and make a cup of tea while we wait for the happy news!

  4. Between my four sisters and myself, we have 15 grandsons. All those boys actually come from three out of five sisters...two sisters have no children. Congrats to your friend!
