Fastelavnskostume til baby

Here in Denmark, there is a carnival called "Fastelavn", it's lots of fun and all the children wear costumes on that occasion.

For my little baby I took the idea of thredbanger's last video: Monster hoodie project

and applied it to a handmade cape according to the following instructions from a doll artist named runo

Cape instructions
the measurements are for a 80 cm tall baby

My Babybag

Coming back to work but feeling like I still had to carry tons of things for baby... I needed a huge bag like the Elodie bag I used during my maternity leave but at the same time, it had to look a bit pro and not to mama like... so I copied the pattern of the Elodie detail bag on a black fabric:

as I didn't know how the bag was originally sewed together, I just sewed the ends at the shoulder and covered it with a white and black piece of fabric

Now the nice thing about this bag, is that my purse (a furla) fits very nicely, without drowning in the bag

A little pocket is handy to keep a little bottle of milk to soothe a tired baby when I have to pick him up from the daycare....

And worn, it looks like this

moreover it hangs on nicely to our umbrella stroller and as the bag and it's weight hang quite low, it doesn't imbalance the stroller

Doorhandle Protector no 2

Back to work, back to the dangerous world of bactery-sharing and having lost my old doorhandleprotector :-(

I made a new one enhanced with a closing feature: a button and an elastic to keep the bacterias trapped
