Can you believe how markets and social conventions made us to use pink and blue for our babies? I say “GIVE IT UP” break out from this madness. There is so many beautiful colors out there and I’m sure you have your favorites but when it comes to the shopping you simply can’t find anything else than baby pink and baby blue.

As you could see on number of my previous posts my baby daughter, who was born few months ago, got a number of lovely items in light purple. I have few pictures with some of them.


Don’t you think it is lovely? If you would like to get a purple collection of items in the best baby store or even on line it would be rather difficult not mentioning quite expensive. I have tried really hard to find some purple items in the local shops and I have finally ended up sewing everything myself.


I have decided to start campaign against baby pink and baby blue. I’m asking you what is your favorite color? Maybe orange or red? Close your eyes and imagine your baby’s room decorated and equipped with items of green, yellow or chocolate brown.

Pick your own combination of colors if you wish and make a list of items which you would like to have. Then e-mail me or find local tailor who can make your dreams come truth.

I have been busy for last couple of weeks with new gorgeous collection.

You can see how green, yellow and just touch of blue can look like 🙂 This has been prepared for my little nephew who will come to this world in few weeks time.


I have sewn pillow case and duvet cover from soft flannel with adorable elephant pattern. Thin polar come handy for blanket and another pillow case. Baby blanket from super soft Minky is the winner!

Cotton and some decorative tape made lovely curtain (same style like purple one :)).


Final touches with little owl, bib and burp cloth.

Would you try something new for your baby? If YES, then I’m waiting for your order 🙂 you will be amazed with sawing you can make. Don’t be shy use your imagination!

Looking for an idea to make costume for your kid? We all do! And I have to admit I was very fortunate this year as the “idea” found me.

Last week my daughter’s gymnastic school did “jungle sports week”. They have asked if the kids could dress up as some jungle animals or have at least some accessories like scarf or head band.

My daughter selected her choice almost immediately “BABY JAGUAR”. Since I had only 1 week to complete everything I had to keep the project as simple as possible.


Baby Jaguar from Dora and DiegoSo I did a small drawing for my daughter. Then she did her own and we kind of negotiated what parts of them were good and which we should skip.

Luckily animal prints are easy to get in any fabric store, especially in October! I got mine and started preparations same evening.







To cut sleeveless t-shirt and shorts I used other cloths of my daughter, then squares of materials for shin covers. This was the easy part but now the difficult part started: the headband which should imitate the ears of baby jaguar. I cut all what I thought will be needed.

head band pieces







First, sew on the fabric to cover a metal headband (you can really use any, I re-used an old one which was damaged anyway, fabric stores can offer a wide range and sometimes you may find it already covered with the right type of fabric). I did this part by hand. You can try to use a machine and the zipper foot should be helpful. For the ears I connected the fabric with felt which was a smaller size than the fabric piece. Then I turned to the right side and the shape was already not too bad. To keep it firm I put in a piece of wire (I took it from an old paper bag which I found in my basement). It made the ears more stable and still flexible. Then I simply sewed it onto the band from the back and front to make sure it will not come off while my daughter is running, jumping and crawling in the gym.

I will not show more details of the shirt and pants. If you would like me to send you them, please e-mails.

To spicy up the whole outfit I decided to make a removable tail. It is filled with stuffing (you can get it in fabric stores or buy cheap a pillow in any supermarket store and just the filling inside – it comes much cheaper) and I added a button at the end of it. Loop it on the pants so once removed for exercise it will not be a bother on the back of the pants.
