I’d like to introduce you to our new little bundle of joy: Nathan was born to us on January 21, 2011. We are so delighted with him and stare at him every second Steven and I get! He really has been a great, peaceful baby and is going so easy on us as our first son!
Here Nathan is in his bassinette, enwrapped in his papoose wrap that I made back him in October. This wrap is out of Lotta Jansdotter’s book, “Simple Sewing for Baby“. We love to wrap him in it to keep warm at night, and know he’ll stay safe. Lotta’s pattern is pretty easy and the perfect size for baby’s first few months. The papoose is actually suppose to be wrapped tighter, but our little man needs to have his hands free. : ) This is a second one I sewed. Both are the same size. Both exterior fabric designs are from Ikea textiles and the interior fleece fabric is made from Ikea blankets (they are only 3.00 each and a lot cheaper to use for fabric than buying 2 yards of fleece at the store.)
