I was so excited when I saw your First Sight collection. The colour scheme in my flat is red, white and black and my sister, who lives in Sweden, is coming to England with her new baby to spend a month with me. I had to send her a link to this new range as I've got to make some co-ordinating toys for my new nephew! Problem is, I can't quite decide what to make from all the wonderful patterns!

Cheryl in Bakersfield said...

I love the firstsight fabrics! I have my first grandson on the way, and will certainly use the tutorials. Thanks for the great instructions. I guess I'll be paying more attention to bold, contrasting colors and patterns now.

Thank you for the tutorial, I'm gonna have to make them all for my upcoming baby!

lindamade said...

I love the idea of the first sight collection! My sister recently had her first child (the first grandkid in the family) and I've been making him things whenever I get a chance. Your carseat strap tutorial came just at the time when she was wondering how she could ever keep them clean. I plan on making them for her as soon as I have a chance.

I just saw the ad for the Oh Baby collection in a magazine and I am dismayed that michael miller fabrics did not do their homework about what a baby "sees". The ad states that red, white, and black are the first colors a baby sees, as a neonatal intensive care nurse with 28 years of experence and have read countless scientific articles on just what a baby sees it's not just red, white or black. Babies perfer any high contrast, blue and white, brown and white. Please michael miller, your fabric is cute but don't put false statements in your ads.
