I wanted to send something a little hand made, but practical. I thought about what I found useful when Alex was a baby, and settled on a little 'kit' to keep in her car. Because you know, sometimes you just need to duck out for a couple of things, and don't want to lug a huge nappy bag.... but sure enough if you don't take it, the little darling (right on cue) will fill the nappy and your minor trip turns into a major ordeal!
So I thought maybe a little Baby Car Kit she could keep in her car boot for emergencies! I chose a fabric I hoped she might like, and used a little bag I got online from Ecoshopper and just sewed a strip of fabric on. With the same fabric, I made a little change mat that can just be thrown in the wash. Then I just added a bunch of stuff that's useful to have close by when you're out : wipes, sunscreen, nappy cream, nappy sacks, a bib, a blanket (so she can wrap bub up, or to put under the change mat when changing for a bit of cushion) and a little baby on board sign. Here's how it all looked when I was finished:
And all packed up and ready for the car:
I hope she likes it - quite a few people around me are pregnant at the moment, and I think this is really cute, so I might do a few more of these!
Bye for now :)
