Ok i need mumsnetters help to find the covers for a moses basket. Got mine out of the loft today and all the frilly bits and hood coverings have gone (does that make sense?) The moses basket is fine and so is the mattress but i have nothing to dress it with! Has to be cheap cos i can get a new basket and covers for £30 but want to use the one i have for sentimental reasons!! Help please cos i dont want to ask DH to go back in the loft!!!
Unfortunatley i cant sew!! Thanks for that one bubblerock, did see that and said to Dh about it! Just seems a shame to not use the moses basket i already have cos it has been used for my ds and my nephews!!
Keep seeing similar requests Bonkerz, so thought I dig out some details of a lady I've used twice in the past to make me some new covers. Her name is Muriel Arthur & she runs a company called Cosy Tots. Email is email@example.com or her phone number is 0191 416 7639. She's fab, very friendly & reasonable prices. She made the liner/drapey thingy for me that goes under the mattress & then drapes over the side. Also, some fitted sheets & little quilt cover thingy. Didn't want a hood, but she can probably turn her hand to that too. I found her invaluable for making fitted sheets for an odd sized cot too She sends you diagrams & gets you to measure your basket at various points & mark these on the diagrams & post back to her. She also sends you different fabric samples to choose from. Couldn't recommend her highly enough! Like you, I wanted to use my original moses.....coz it's so much nicer, bigger & sturdier than the flimsy ones you tend to see in the shops! HTH, Iona x
