Galaxy Nest and breastfeeding cover - custom order
I probably say this every time , haha But I LOVED doing this order! So the main reason is the fabric!
The fabric is hand screen Printed fabric from Design Team fabrics, from a time in my life when things felt simple and easy, colourfull and well, haha easy!
I worked for Design Team as a pattern maker and sample designer, meaning I made and tested all their new products. And the Fabric used for this nest was printed for a Kaftan/ shift dress design, and when there was some leftover fabric, I used all my spares money to buy it. In those days I didn’t have kids so all my additional money could be spent on fabric. (Lol) I decided to make myself pants and clothes from the fabric, but as usual I never got around to it, fast forward 2 years and I was pregnant, I decided to make my new baby a nest, from this fabric, coz then I would be looking at the fabric constantly and admiring my baby and the fabric together, haha.
So I made Paul a nest and then I had some fabric left and every-time a client wanted a nest in that fabric, I said it was sold out.
You see Design Team doesn’t print by hand anymore and the fabric has now become a rare commodity to me, I wasn’t about to just let it go.
But then a special friend of mine’s sister got pregnant, and The moment she asked me about the fabric, I knew, I kept if for her, unknowingly. We both share a love of fabric and I just felt like it was meant for her!
It was a pleasure making this nest, she wanted something that was neutral enough to use in their bedroom that wasn’t too ‘baby-themed’ and this fabric was perfect.
I made it with a loose mattress and free hand stitched the mattress with a unique pattern to add to the somewhat accidental galaxy theme.
I also made a matching dummy clip and a breastfeeding cover/muslin blanket, a new product that I’m in the process of launching, so keep a look out-for it!
