I love hand sewing projects. I had this star baby project in a tray in our living area for the last few weeks. They were easy to pick up and work on while Jed is working on a project. It's a good feeling to be each working on their own project and yet, be sharing creative space.
Star babies are a lovely idea for toddlers and other young 'uns birthday gifts. They pop into a pocket, nestle into crooks of trees and are beautifully child hand sized.
Naturally dyed woollen felt is such tactile joy to work with too.
I have a tutorial coming up for you. The crafty among you could just look at the jumble on my craft table in the photo above and wing it, I am sure.
You too can have your own star baby squadron. These aren't for us, Jed has been spending two mornings a week at the local (ish) Steiner kindergarten, alongside our usual lovely homebased rhythms, and each parent does some crafting for the children's bazaar at the annual Advent Fair. I got to make star babies. Clearly!
