Moses Basket

We bought this Moses Basket from Mothercare. I made the beddings for the basket with leftover fabric from Baby's dress. The fitted sheet for the oval mattress is really easy to sew - it's the same as making an iron board cover...took me under an hour to make from tracing pattern to finishing..but i didn't enjoy making the curved double folded hem..

Mothercare has a selection of moses basket in different colours but i chose this simple white one..it's cheaper, and i love the details on the skirting here..plus with a white basket i can customise the bedding to any colour i like..

For the blanket I made this little quilt. I quilted it with free-motion quilting but i think that made it too wrinkly..wrinkly quilt could've worked with a bigger quilt but on this small one it looks weird to me..in retrospect i should've probably hand-quilted it since it's so small..it would've looked prettier..tapi takpelah, asal boleh pakai..

your 'asal boleh' still looks fantastic! hehe.. btw, i'm starting to learn knitting, but still a lil bit hard to catch up esp. when the yarn are too tight so i cannot make it from one row to another. eventho i start with a loose cast-on, tapi nanti mesti end up jadik ketat bila moving to another row esp from 2nd row to 3rd one. so any tips? (or should i blame the yarn? haha..)

aina...wow! can't believe you're learning to knit! congrats!!! i don't know why...maybe your yarn weight doesn't suit the needle size? or maybe it was knitted too tight?or maybe just a new thing..after a while maybe you find it easier with practise..anyway...don't give up..keep trying!

munirah,
thank you :)

hi.. i've been following ur blog for a while now.. i love all the things that u've sewn so far.. was just wondering which model of sewing machine do u use? i sew myself but my sewing machine has really basic functions.. am thinking of upgrading.. but i'm not sure what i should be looking for.. in terms of what the machine is able to do..hope you're able to share your thoughts on this =D

MommyAdam said...

kak fathin,
tertinggal lak nak reply..dah lama la tak amik gambar adam since outdoor asik gloomy jer..nnt letak video dia la ek..

pennylane,
i use janome harmony 2049. i love this machine because it can do most things i'd like to do like....quilting, sewing thick fabric like jeans, sewing leather, buttonholes, edge finishing etc, on top of the normal sewing..it came with so many different foot. if you're choosing a better machine, you might want to look for machines with specific things you're interested in..
