ScrapHappy # June

It’s ScrapHappy day again!  Time to link with Gun, Kate and a whole gang of other crafters (all links further down), to share what we’ve been making with scraps.

I’d had wind of a couple of births in my neighbourhood, so it seemed like a good idea to make a couple of presents to welcome new babies into the world.  Nothing elaborate. Just something soft & bright.

The teething bits are brand new but fabrics & wadding are scraps.  Lots of souvenirs of past projects in these!

    • lol. I’m a bit annoyed with myself because, when I made some of the same a few years ago, I sewed crinkle paper and a squeaker Inside, so there were lots of things to keep baby interested. This time, Iforgot about the crinkle paper until it was too late, didn’t have any squeakers, so just added the teething bits. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts!

  1. I’m glad you explained what they were for. Never having had children I didn’t realise they were for teething, I thought they were heat pads with fancy tags! Lucky babies 🙂

    • well yes, babies generally like to put things in their mouth, so that’s what the teething bit is for. Then they’ll have the fluffy texture on back to interest them (I hope) and lots of different colours with birds etc, to spot.

    • I enjoyed making them, although it was a bit difficult getting the binding on correctly with the fluffy fabric on the back. I also like how so many past projects produced scraps that have interesting birds/insects/animals to spot.

  2. What a cute and functional baby gift! I might just have to steal this idea from you. Another project going on my to-do list 😉

    • feel free to copy ^^ I usually add crinkle paper Inside, so it makes an interesting noise when baby plays with it, but I forgot this time.
