Fabric Hanging Cradle Tutorial

Fabric Hanging Cradle Tutorial in a style of TutorialGirl, with photo instructions and patterns for it. The TutorialGirl is my new passion that I have with designing and making sewing tutorials for all lovely sewing people out there. The basic philosophy is, to have sewing patterns with photo instructions for easy understanding and usually the projects are not difficulty. In my tutorials I try to explain everything that I know on a subject and I try to do this more with photos then with words.

For Hanging Cradle I did the same. Everything is simple with a little wood work, and all you need to have from tools (for woodworking) is a handsaw; so simple this is. Everything else is made with a sewing machine, easy peasy and fun project, as always. The pattern could be found on my Etsy shop. TutorialGirl

PS: what do you think about my lace version of freehand machine sewing of the lullaby’s on the fabric?

    Thanks for great comments. I love this technique, and I try this first time. I know I didn’t do this ok, because I use just one shit of cotton, and I don’t know where I could found the “heavy lining” for the backside. But it was nice experience and I need to try this on more projects with children illustrating or abstract for me.

    For finished pattern I need a day or maybe two, so it will be soon.

    Great stuff! The lullabies are a very cool touch. I just might steal that idea for the next baby related thing I’ll make ;-)
