week end creation

I came across this tutorial a long time ago and finally got some time to do it this week end.
With all my friends popping babies lately, I have been thinking a lot about making baby clothes, toys, etc.
For the toys, my tries have not been very successfull so far (unless I wanted to scare the babies that is), but I am quite happy with these....

Oh soooo cute! I could make a million of these! They are made entirely of recycled wool, inside and out.
Thanks to Mollychicken for sharing that pattern!

I have just send a parcel to my mum in France. It's kind of been a while that I wanted to post it, but kept adding to it...
Today it had to go as we are going to France in about 4 weeks and I would find it a bit silly that the parcel would arrive after me. I didn't want to carry everything either, as we have a stop over in Singapore, and then we have to travel from Frankfurt to Strasbourg, my home town, and I will already have plenty of presents in my bag...
I have sent her some stuff I have made myself, a brooch, and a book pocket like the one that I made in that post, and a bag.
I particularly like this bag.

It is made entirely of cotton. The strippy material comes from the red cross, and the floral white and blue material is a piece of recycled table cloth.
