First diy toy for our baby

This past weekend we made our baby her very own plushie toy. It's a bit large but it's meant to keep her company while she's asleep in the crib, taking up most of the space I guess. I hope the baby won't mind. So, I started by going to Ikea to get the cheapest pillow (for its filling) and a cosy, white blanket. 
I used this tutorial, followed it carefully but managed to mess things up anyway (the belly piece fell under the table and was completely forgotten) so our lady whale now has only one fin, but I think it only makes her special. 

the forgotten piece

Kamil prepared and printed out all the pieces, otherwise I'd have to draw them myself and god knows what creature that would have made. 


Apart from all the crafting going on we also started collecting some baby clothes. Since I'm not feeling a hundred percent I thought there is no point waiting until the very end to get all the stuff. It's also super exciting to pick all these tiny outfits, little socks and hats. Let's be honest...I just couldn't resist and my feeling a bit worse was just a perfect excuse :)

And the most exciting event that's happening this friday iiiis....Roxy's wedding. We are really looking forward to it. These paper flowers are just a little sneek peek of what's going to be one of the prettiest weddings I've been to. More pictures to come. 

And speaking of previews, here's one of our flat. The makover is slowly coming to an end. There are some final touches left but hopefully, within the next few days, we'll finally have a new flat. Yay!

 Have a fabulous day!

  1. That has got to be the cutest DIY plushy ever. I love how simply adorable it is. I'm sure your baby would love that. I hope I can replicate it the way you made it. I'd give it as a gift to my baby niece. Thank you for sharing! Wishing you all the best!
