I'm not the maternal type myself - Chez HbyH consists of me, my husband and two dogs. So I needed a bit of help in the planning stage. After posting a query on my facebook page I got lots of helpful tips - which basically can be summed up as follows - 'pockets', 'pockets' and 'more pockets'!
Jo was quite flexible in what she wanted, but did give me some pointers on her favourite choice of colours - she had a brown and green influenced colour scheme at her wedding. Eventually we settled on Kitty Yoshida's Brooklyn Heights fabric.
It's getting there - but boy, did that front raised pocket give me some trouble! I'm still not happy it's quite square enough.
Just the strap to finish and I can put the whole thing together, but you'll have to wait for next weeks Handmade Monday to see the finished thing. I still have dogs to walk, dinner to cook and my sewing mess to tidy up! Hopefully there will be enough sunshine for me to get some pictures of the finished item before Jo heads off one her maternity leave next week.
