A baby's cot

Hi everyone I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Its been a little while I know but my little extra to go with my sister's baby card has taken a tad longer than expected to finish.  Its done now anyway so here's a few piccies. 


I had a go at making a baby's cot.  I used a template which I bought year's ago and had never used so I decided to dust it off and give it a go.  

 
There was a lot of cutting involved and I decided to distress it by inking all the edges (and there were a lot of edges) and the side bars have all been beaded which took ages but adds a little extra.  I love the hanging mobile I wasn't sure whether I was going to do one at first but I'm glad I did now.

 
I made a cot bumper and quilt and used ribbon/lace to edge and soften it all.  Not sure you can see so well but I have added little pearls to the top of the blanket and pearl hearts on the ribbon and bottom of the blanket.  Things don't feel finished to me if I haven't added ribbon and a pearl or two!!!

 
One last piccie to show another view.  I used the same papers as I did for the actual baby card in my previous post.   The template was an Arty Farty design template.

Okay thats me done for today.  I've just finished baking an apple cake and now need to make a chicken and leek pie for tea.  Mmmm I just love autumn with all its warming bakes and smells and soon be time to pick my sloe berries to make my sloe gin for Christmas - yum!.
 
Take care folks and happy crafting.
