I come from a BIG family. And I like it.
One of the reasons is that every good news or joy is multiplied by the number of the family members. Just like it was three years ago, when my brother announced we’ll be getting a new family member – a baby girl.
Believe me, we could not wait to meet her. And because we are a family, my mom and two of my sisters, we came up with the same idea – ‘let’s make the first friends (meaning handmade toys) for this little girl’. So we did. Lucy and Ester (my sisters) are the authors of the sock monkeys. My mom and I decided to make a doll.
It always amuses me to see how different styles we (my sisters and my mom) have. And to make it clear, from the first day Jasmina was born, these buddies guard her sleeping room.
August 2018 meant for our family time of celebrations as my sisters, born in ‘-8’ year had (obviously) a round-figure birthday. But there is still one member to arrive in August 2018. At the moment we are all impatiently waiting for Henryk, the little brother of Jasmina. And as sewing and crafting is something we share with my sisters and mom, we thought to shorten this unbelievably slow going expecting time by preparing his bed.
I was impressed by my sister Ester, who was able to create a perfect baby nest based just on a pinterest picture. I believe, Henryk will feel save and comfortable in this nice cosy thingy. In cooperation with my mom I contributed a baby bed bumper to this welcome project.
Henryk, it’s time to come! Your big family (counting already 16 members!) is waiting for you!
