New fabrics

Decided to pop into IKEA and check out some fabrics, wasn´t going to buy anything, yeah like that would happen.

Am planing a new Mei Tai and was going to look at some strap fabric, ended up buying some beige and some orange, also got some blue/orange fabric and a fleece blanket to stuff into the straps. Have already started one (or two) so I´ll end up with a nice MT stash, so much fun.
Should have gotten some green also so I could finish one of the MT´s I´ve started on.

Here´s what I got:

Ironing is such a bore

I really really don´t like ironing. I never seem to be able to get it perfect.
Now I have a bunch of blue denim like IKEA (see a pattern forming here) Lenda fabric waiting patiently for me, I really want to start cutting this fabric so I guess I´ll have to get on with the ironing.

Started cutting and old pieces

I managed to cut out pieces for a Mei Tai yesterday, well all except the straps because I don´t have enough green fabric for them. Don´t know if I´ll buy more green or maby have them in a different colour so it doesn´t look to much like the one I´ve already made with green straps. I´ll be using these fantastic instructions again since I´ve already done so with great result.

Here´s the MT I aldeady made using these fantastic instructions . All IKEA fabric, gotta love IKEA. Here with the hood down, I´m thinking about doing something fun with the hood on the next one. We´ll see what happens.
Hood up.
Had to put this here. It´s something very cute and extremely easy (just a napkin on canvas) I made this a few years ago for DS2 and plan on making more for DS3.

Kids fabrics

For some reason I tend to end up buying fabric for kids. Maybe it´s because I have kids or even it´s because I´m just a big baby myself, one has to hang on to his youth you know :)
Here´s my latest buy, IKEA Barnslig fabric fresh from the wash all crumpled on the line.
