During the last 2 months of Lindi's pregnancy, she asked me to make our favourite little man, Luan, a baby nest. Since I never made one before I Googled, pinned and YouTubed my heart out. Very eager (and very sure of myself!) I cut the fabric and started the first attempt. What a complete fail!
The problem was - Luan came a few weeks early! The boy was growing super fast and he needed his nest. So off I went and delivered "Baby Nest - Attempt One". Luckily Luan was still too little to judge.
Back at the drawing board, I turned to YouTube again and finally found the wonderful tutorial below! It explains step-by-step how to make a neat and beautiful baby nest.
My version (see photos) is not perfect (what's up with the square corners???) but Luan seems to like it!
Moral of the story:
- Try again and again.
- There is so much joy in giving a handmade gift!
- YouTube (and the creative geniuses that use it) is your friend. 😉
