humpty dumpty and other nursery rhymes

My niece Katie is expecting her first baby, which is actually due today! I had knitted a couple of things for the baby and I wanted to present them in a sweet way so I decided to make a nursery gift bag for the little jacket I had knitted. I had some lovely nursery fabric that I bought online and made this sweet little bag

I love the detail of nursery rhyme figures on the lower part of the bag

                                        one little piggy went to market

                                              Humpty Dumpty

        you can just see Hickory Dickery Dock on the left hand side

The fabric for the upper part of the bag is a lovely bright red colour with letters of the alphabet and numbers and stars, a perfect nursery fabric. I finished it off with this pretty trim. I am really pleased with the result and hope to make more of these bags to sell in my Etsy shop.
Let's hope Katy doesn't have to wait any longer for baby as I am pretty sure she is getting fed up with waiting!
What one needs when nursing babies is a rocking chair! And here is one I made earlier ( well I didn't make it so much as bought it!)

I have always wanted a rocking chair and when I saw this in a second hand shop in Needham Market I had to have it.

I intend to make a comfy cushion out of this fabric, I think I picked it up in Felixstowe a while ago, it will suit the cottage style I want to maintain in my home.

In the meantime a quilted throw and a ticking cushion made by me does the trick!
