Chestnut figures very easy and fun DIY project with kids. Just need chestnuts, a pushpin to make holes, wooden sticks for legs, eyes and maybe clay or paper for scarves etc
great baby present: soother blanket make sure you don't lose the soother all the time and your child has something to cuddle all in one made with two different fabrics and soft fabric inside. simply putting them on each other, sow with some nice labels and pull inside out and stitch last part.
Lovely maxi cosi wrapper that you can also use as a play mat or changing mat. I made this for a Dutch friend (hence the Dutch flagged fabric). It's an easy 95 x 95 cm square with a hood sowed on to it (from the inside) and some labels (kids love putting their fingers trough them). I measured the placement for the holes with another wrapper. You can also do that by placing it in the maxi cosi and draw where the straps are.
