Free sewing pattern to make an adorable swaddle!

Here is another post to encourage sewing beginners with a really easy swaddle pattern!  It is possible that you know someone who is going to have a baby soon, either among your relatives, friends or colleagues… or maybe the baby is on its way to your own home!

It is always a good idea to present future parents with some gifts for the baby, especially a useful item that would help them through the nursing period. If, in addition, you like sewing or want to start doing it, you can even give them something unique and special, handmade by yourself!

One of the easiest and most gratifying options here is a swaddle or small blanket to wrap the baby in. This is an essential garment during the first few months, and it is advisable to have several replacements, as they gets stained very often!

Here you will find a free sewing pattern to make a beautiful and simple blanket for the baby. It is recommended for beginners, so success is guaranteed even if you have no sewing experience! The fabrics used in the original design are Robert Kaufman flannels. Flannel is a particularly soft fabric, perfect for sewing baby clothes.

And, remember, if you dare to make this beautiful swaddle, do not fail to send us images of the result. We love seeing your creations!

FREE Miffy wallpaper!

This one goes out to all fans of kawaii wallpapers, and of cute bunny rabbits alike: We have found an awesome colourful free Miffy wallpaper and, of course, had to share it with you!  Check out the first picture below for a good look at its beautiful design, you can use it to revamp your desktop’s background!

Did you know that Miffy has been around for a long while?  Even though her kawaii design may strongly recall other Asian-born animal characters like Sanrio‘s and San-X‘s, she was created by Dutch illustrator Dick Bruna some decades ago.  Initially, Miffy was the star of many books for young kids, she later appeared in TV cartoons, and presently there are lots of diverse items available featuring this cute bunny.

The lovely she-rabbit is a favourite in Japan, and here too, as you will see in some other images we found on All About Hong Kong’s Facebook page and Instagram page.  You can come across different products featuring Miffy, and even dedicated displays.  Is Miffy your favourite bunny character?  What do you like most about her? Let us know!
