Changing Pads

Well, with the new colors I've gotten I just couldn't wait to make some changing 
pads.

Below is a sample of a few of them for you to see.

 I love Art Gallery fabric. I don't care what anyone says, I think it has the most Lush 
beautiful feel of fabric that I have ever felt!

 The one in that blue gray color with the branches of birch trees in it it is 
the most beautiful fabric.
 It Is by Caratini Ratchet Le. She is a designer at Art Gallery and her stuff is
 simply different and gorgeous. 
I make these changing pads with a wet dry liner so that when you turn them over it is 
softer for the baby's head, but then if there is a little accident it will hold them
 because there is a plastic background. I should not say plastic; it is some kind
 of polyurethane that keeps it from leaking through, which is what you want. Then 
you can simply roll it up, take it home and throw it in the wash for a little while
 It is just what everybody wants: easy wash and dry. I think that it is better to hang
iit dry if possible because of the plastic. Too much heat might make 
it shrink. 
I also got some beautiful elastics from a real good friend of mine. 
She sells elastic and the colors that came with these are just perfect for all 
the stuff I was making.
 Well, I hope you enjoy them. Hope to see you all soon,

Toddler Sleep Set

Well, on Saturday morning I got up really early because I had an idea for a new set for newborns- a sleep sack and a hat and my new drool bib. I got in this great organic elephant print from birch fabrics which is so plush; it has a real softness to it. I pre-washed it, and then I added a wonderful pink and grey striped fabric. The pink is so soft that you almost can not tell that it is pink. It is muted and lush and feels like heaven.
I made the cutest drool bib with the elephants on the front and the stripe on the back and I think that I am going to keep making these because they are just so soft and wonderful. You can keep it around the child’s neck more often because it is so comfortable.

I found a pattern for it earlier, but I did not like it so I revised it. I changed it so that there was less fabric on the back of the baby’s neck. I like it better this way. You all will have to tell me if you agree next time you come in the store.
But the whole thing we sell as a set now. As shown below:

Baby Face
by Carl Sandburg

WHITE MOON comes in on a baby face.
The shafts across her bed are flimmering.

Out on the land White Moon shines,
Shines and glimmers against gnarled shadows,
All silver to slow twisted shadows
Falling across the long road that runs from the house.

Keep a little of your beauty
And some of your flimmering silver
For her by the window to-night
Where you come in, White Moon.
