Gift Guide Thinking Grey

Baby Gifts Grey


Thinking Grey.
Today's colour gift guide is Grey.

Grey has got to be one of my favourite colours for a baby and their nursery. It's an easy colour to work with and is perfect for either a baby boy or baby girl which makes it a great safe gift option for a baby shower when you don't know yet the gender of the baby! 
Take a look below for more inspiration and don't forget to have a look at my Colour Gift Guide for more gift ideas.

Introducing My New Baskets - Perfect for Nappies!


Introducing my new size storage baskets. 
These baskets are 9inches in length by 8" wide by 7.5 " tall or in cm 23 x 20 x 19.5cm, so they are an inch longer and two inches wider than my other storage baskets that have a linen base. When I was designing the shape of this basket I had the idea of nappy storage in mind. I wanted to create a basket that you could store a good number of nappies in neatly and also be able to fit on a shelf of a changing table or on a chest of drawers comfortably. A basket that would offer really handy, useful storage in a baby's nursery whilst also being playful, colourful and stylish.


These new baskets will hold roughly 24 nappies in total in two rows. Of course, the exact number of nappies will depend on their thickness and size, but as you can see from the photos below, 24 nappies in a size 2 fit nicely in two rows.




Of course, you don't have to fill these baskets up with nappies! They can be used to store many things in and don't have to be used only in a nursery! Available in 5 different fabrics, the very stylish and Modern Grey Scallops,


Twinkling Gold Stars with a cream cotton canvas liner,


Blue Animals with a blue teal spot liner,


Grey Buck Heads with a grey spotty liner, 


And finally Dear on a teal background with a lovely gold dotty liner. Now this one is extra special as there is only one of these available with the gold dotty lining, so you need to be quick if this is the one for you!   



All of these new baskets, along with all the rest can be found here. And more photos and to stay up to date with what I am currently working on please pop over to Facebook and Instagram and say hi!

Shop Update - Two - New Baby Gift Sets





Earlier this year I added a some new baby bib and burp cloth sets to my range. Made with 100% cotton fabric on the front and backed with my favourite bamboo/cotton silky soft towelling on the back, these sets are not only practical, but extremely soft and cosy for the baby to wear. Two snap fasteners make the bibs adjustable and suitable from baby to toddler, and the burp cloths are designed to be flung over the shoulder to protect your clothing whilst winding your baby, and they also come in very handy as general baby cloths.





Sold as sets, one bib and one matching burp cloth, they make great baby shower gifts and lovely presents for new parents. They can be found here, though the 'Peeking birds in gold' has proved so popular it is already unfortunately sold out.

Long Time......



 Sorry! 
I can't really believe that its been nearly 9 months since I last wrote a post. That's terrible!
For those of you that follow me on other social media sites, you will know that I haven't faded away, in fact quite the opposite! I have found myself so busy with work, that its been very difficult to keep everything going and to get the balance right. You will also have seen if you follow me on Instagram or on Facebook, that I have been busy adding lots of new items over the last few months which I am excited to share with you. So over the next few days I am hoping to bring you up-to-date with all that has been going on at A Crafty Hen!

New Baby Bandana Dribble Bibs





Say hello to my new collection of bandana style bibs. 
As soon as I saw this gorgeous flannel I knew that it would make for the softest of bibs. And this style of bib is not only perfect for a dribbling baby they are also very suited to a teething toddler!  Made with a layer of 100% cotton flannel, three of which also have the wonderful look of herringbone wool weave, and backed with a layer of organic cotton fleece these bibs are soft to the touch making them extremely comfortable to wear. And made with only cotton fabrics no polyester in sight you can be confident that you are putting only the kindest natural fabrics next to your babies delicate skin. In lovely Autumnal colours they can be found here in my shop.

Saying Goodbye is Never Easy!






I was working away the other day cutting fabric for orders when it suddenly dawned on me that the bib and burp cloth set in 'clouds in gold' that I was busy cutting out was to be the last. I had a moment of panic and quickly raided my fabric stash hoping desperately to find some more of the fabric unfortunately to no avail. I then had a quick scour of the internet trying to find some for sale, again no, which didn't surprise me, this collection is now out of print. So that is it, no more of this gorgeous organic fabric. I am annoyed at myself for my lack of planning and that I didn't buy a lot more of it. But it can be very difficult at times to judge the fabrics that will be popular and sell well. I am also annoyed as I was hoping to make myself a cushion out of it and had thought I had put some away in my private stash but some where along the lines I must have used that as well. So I feel quite sad to say that I have just one 'Storage Basket' left made from this fabric and I have managed to sneak in one lonely 'Baby Bib' out of it and that's it, no more passing clouds in gold! Thankfully a new collection is coming out this Spring which includes some more clouds in different colours so all is not lost and I still have gift sets and storage baskets available in Blue Passing Clouds in my shop. As for me I have learnt an important lesson here always buy more fabric!

More Storage Baskets in New Designs






I just can not stop making these storage baskets. I enjoy the whole process from selecting the fabric to sewing them to seeing the finished baskets all lined up on a shelf! So its no wonder that I have made a few more! I have added another five baskets in new fabrics to my Etsy shop. The very popular Black Triangle basket is now also available in grey, also in grey is a lovely basket featuring small crosses. Then there is a mint with small white triangles and the odd glittery gold triangle, and 'Crystal Arrowhead' which is what the fabric is called and I rather like the name! There will be only a few of these two baskets available as the fabric comes from a limited addition collection and I have noticed that it has already sold out in many stores. And finally I have got round to listing a deer basket which coordinates with a bib and burp cloth set that is also in my shop. This organic fabric featuring deer in a mix of gorgeous muted colours is one of my all time favourite fabrics and I am hoping to have blankets available in this print very soon. And for those that ask me on a daily basis for larger baskets well, I am working on those at the moment so hope to get a few in my shop in the next couple of weeks! 
Right you can see all of the baskets pictured above and more here!
Happy weekend!
