ikea!

Now that Oscar is going down at bedtime easily and staying asleep, I have a little time for myself in the evenings. The other night I went to Ikea to get the Antilop highchair since Oscar will be starting solids soon, and of course got a couple other things that caught my eye as well: this super cute house print fabric, and a wool throw with a lovely graphic pattern. I haven't figured out what to do with the fabric yet - any ideas?

I bought the same fabric, it's cute!
I think I'll sew some placemats or make a soft city as a toy for children.
Show us your work!

I was looking at that fabric as well! I'm going to get it for cushion covers. Maybe colour the houses to make it unique :)

the house looks great for an apron or since you're having a baby around, a diaper bag might come in handy.
