...until one day me and our not so little boy spotted this mini "display shelf" in a two-dollar store. "Does it look like a baby cot to you?" - I asked him. "It does, Mum." - he said. Well, we bought it. For just two dollars eighty. Yes, you read that right, it's a very cheap baby cot.
I felt like a little girl again sewing the miniature bedding for the cot. Fussing with bits and pieces of fabric and tiny stitches. I am sure that this bedding is done in a much better way and the stitches are not on the outside as I used to sew when I was little. I used a blanket stitch all the time, the first one my Mum taught me to do. At that time I thought that my sewing skills were excellent. He he... Anyway, I enjoyed working on this tiny project very much, it was a lovely play really.
And you know what the best part is? Our little Mousey Mouse LOVES his Bunny's new cot! He knows exactly what to do. The very first time I gave him the cot, he rocked his little friend, and kissed him goodnight, and put him to sleep... right on the bare bottom of the cot. He removed all the bedding first, then he pushed the mattress on top of the Bunny with all his might, put the pillow on top, as well as also squashing the tiny quilt there, and patted it all nicely. I wish I had my camera ready at that moment. I am not sure if the Bunny was quite comfortable, but the little one was very proud of himself and was very happy. He smiled and clapped for doing such a great job. What a sweetie!
You can see that I not only enjoyed making the bedding, I also had a lot of fun setting it all up for the photo shoot. I feel like building a whole house now for this little fellow. He looks so cute with his new cot!
Oh well, the nap time is almost over and I have to say it's been a productive time for today. I might have a few more minutes to do some hand sewing - to finish a little gift for a special little boy.
Wishing you all a lovely and sunny day no matter in what part of the world you live! Thank you for stopping by! Larisa xox
