A tiny Christmas preview

Pink is for girls

Veronika doesn't read this site yet, so I can share my excitement about one gift I made for her today. I had been looking for some type of swaddling blanket for her doll, because Veronika always tries to wrap her up in a blanket and carry her around, but the blanket keeps sliding off to her great frustration and so she keeps bringing the doll to me with this half furious/half whiny voice: "Mamaaa, it.. doesn't.. stay.. ON!!!" I wanted something like this, because I got a similar version for Ivan as a gift (thank you, Kathrin!). They call it a "carrynest", but I've known it since I was little, because babies used to be swaddled in that stuff all the time (Einbinddeckerl!). Of course this thing does not exist for dolls. I looked everywhere, at least I think I did, so the logical conclusion was to make it myself. It had to be easy and fast and really, it came together this morning (the kids were at the sitters, of course!) with no major setbacks. I didn't rip one seam, now that I think of it... which is big for me.
