    Bitty Baby cradle for our DGD's Christmas

    My husband enjoys woodworking and I enjoy quilting so we cooperated on this Christmas gift for our sweet 4 yr. old grand daughter. Hubby designed and made the cradle, and I did the bedding and mobile. The heart mobile, mattress & pillow were made with two layers of Soft and Stable (used for purses etc) with the heart and pillow stuffed further with poly fill placed in between for poof. The mobile also had a musical button that played Brahms Lullaby when pressed. The sheet and pillowcase are removable for washing and the quilt matches her twin quilt, right down to the butterfly quilting. Can you tell I enjoy the details?! Ha, ha. Emilia didn't realize that until she got home.Name:  DSCF3381.JPG

    All your photos are beautiful, but I just had to write. Please have your husband add a lattice behind the heart cutout. I know you think small babies are too small to lift their heads, but a bigger baby or toddler can "play" with the cradle and put their heads thru that size cutout and strangle. Please consider adding this addition (or some other) and make it safe. I hope you take this suggestion in the caring manner that it was intended and not as a criticism of the beautiful work.
