I just finished this sweet cushion with pom pom trim and coordinating spotty fabric on the back for my baby girl's new room.
It goes well with a cosy blanket I made a couple of years ago which has been well used and much loved.
It's made mostly with Cath Kidston fabrics and backed in pale blue fleece which is super soft and cosy. It's ideal as a play mat and washes and dries easily.
It also makes a lovely cuddle blanket on chilly days.
The storage buckets can be made in a flash in all different sizes and are perfect for storing nappies, wipes, cotton wool or even toys. If you want to make them I would advise using heavier weight cotton or if you choose lightweight then you'd be best to iron on or sew in some fabric stiffener so they stand up and aren't too floppy.
These have be super useful!
