DIY Sewing Tutorial Belle Epoque Whimsy Bias Tape Grandma Bag Tote

I recently made this little tote for my toddler using the super easy tutorial posted by Nancy of Belle Epoque. I used fabric and bias tape I had on hand, therefore it's not a perfect match. I don't think Makenna noticed. ;) I made the kanzashi flower embellishment based on this tutorial (video tutorial), and added a fabric covered button. It did take me a few tries to sew the petals together properly, but I'm pretty happy with the end result. And, Makenna loves it. I think I'll have to make one for myself...

Mother Earth and Baby Unique and Luxurious Baby Gifts, Organic Cotton, and Expanding Nursery Collection

Last year I was fortunate enough to review Playbabies by Lee Middleton Dolls submitted by Terri, owner of Mother Earth and Baby. Her business is entering it's third year of business and is expanding it's nursery collection to offer some of the most luxurious upscale designers, including Bratt Decor, Bananafish, Amenity, Bebe Chic, Kootie Bug Designs, Doodlefish and more.

I was interested to learn about their collection of children and maternity clothing from UK designer Bamboo Baby. Their clothing is created from the bamboo plant:

"Bamboo clothing is becoming a 'must have' item because of it's remarkable natural characteristics:
  • it's as soft as cashmere
  • naturally wicks moisture
  • naturally antibacterial
  • highly breathable
  • stays cooler in heat
  • warmer in the cold
  • the most environmentally friendly raw material on earth, even when compared with organic cotton.

These qualities combine to offer a new level of luxury and comfort, in a sustainable and ethical way. Bamboo is being called ‘The New Cotton' and people are talking about ‘A Textile Revolution'."

Save 10% on our new boutique line of bamboo baby and maternity clothes with code: BMOM10
