your ordinary Muslin Squares
I love when a package arrives and you open it to be
presented by the product in another bag. This makes it feel like
you are not in a mass production line and your order is being carefully
and lovingly passed to you.
That may be a bit odd but it is a concept that I have
been considering for some time. A few parcels have arrived
recently with tissue paper or within a paper bag and I have decided I
like this very much.
The product I have been given by
sewlomax.com is from the baby range.
The Baby range is easy to notice with the fab design
of the large nappy pin.
I have the Muslin/Swaddle set. Of course no
parent should be without a muslin. My first baby was always in
need of a muslin - we even changed the name of them to urppa as he

My sister who is in her 30's still has a collection of
muslins as they are her cuddly. Her bed often has many laying at
the bottom which is hilarious. Her new baby will have to fight her
for them I think.

can interchange them really easily therefore offering a clean snuggle.
No more manky teddy.

the person holding the baby, the floor or mat if baby laid on it.
My eldest was born in a time when the car seats did not come with a hood
so therefore muslins were used to shade baby too.
Matthew my eldest was known in our community for his
slight obsession with wearing a cape. Yes this too was a muslin
square. It meant I could attempt to get him to where we needed to
be and taking him with the cape made this easier -- yes looked a little
odd but on a youngster it wasn't the end of the world.
The sewlomax muslins are 100% cotton and are super
soft. The box contains 3 large muslins at 100x100cm. One has
an embroidered nappy pin on a white muslin. One has dummies
printed on it and the other is printed with nappy pins.
box also shows instructions on how to swaddle a baby. A very
useful technique to learn to help sooth a young child. I used to
do this even as they grow because they do like the security of being
