Berlin Baby Rattle

Gah, time, such a precious commodity! Earlier this year (like WAY earlier) I made some Berlin inspired baby rattles. I was going to share the tutorial with you ages ago, but never found the time. If you are looking for a last minute hand made Christmas gift for any littles in your life, perhaps that […] Read more…

Pillow Case Doll’s Dress

Today is the last of my DIY gift ideas here on the blog before Christmas. It’s a really easy doll’s dress that you can whip up as a last minute present, which follows the ‘pillow case’ dress method.

Teddy Bear Wardrobe

Are you ready for this week’s DIY gift idea? We’re back to sewing this week. Earlier this year, we attended my sister-in-law’s wedding in Scotland and I wanted to bring along something quiet for the boy to play with to keep him occupied if necessary.

But being over here in Berlin, expat fever has hit us, so we’ve decided to gather all our friends (British and others alike) for a Jubilee Party. Of course, […] Read more…

{DIY} Cushion Covers

23 March 2012 Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on the blog front this week, I’ve been busy with something very important and exciting, all of which will be revealed soon. In the mean time, how about another DIY project for the weekend? The boy absolutely LOVES throwing himself into piles of cushions, so I […] Read more…

{DIY} Make Your Own Braces

5 March 2012 Whether you’re moving from non-pat to expat, or from expat to ex expat, one thing all moves have in common is settling into your new abode. It’s been exactly 6 months last week that we’ve been living in our new flat (not counting our first two weeks in Berlin where we were in […] Read more…
