the SweetPod SleepPod

SweetPod SleepPod

I love having a Moses basket for a newborn.  It is so nice to have a cozy place to lay baby down right next to me wherever I am in the house– on the couch while I’m reading to other kids, on the floor next to my sewing table, in my room next to my bed.  It’s her own little sanctuary that even the 2 year old understands is the baby’s bed.

So, when I was dreaming about Eva coming I decided I wanted to make a Moses basket and write up the pattern to add to my SweetPod collection.

Here it is!  It’s been in constant use for the past 4 weeks (Really, it’s been 4 weeks?!) and I’ve decided it passed the functionality test.

It has a removable, washable quilted bumper pad,

and a mattress with a removable, washable cover.   I’m just about done with the pattern writing.  I have had such a hard time making myself sit down and write it, but I made a lot of headway today and will be ready to send it out to testers by next Friday for sure.

perfect place for the fresh baby

I have to say up front this is not a quick project or an inexpensive one, but as a mama of 6 I definitely think it is worth the work and money to have a super cute, comfy place to lay my perfect little bundle.

Anyone want to try it?  **I’ve got all the testers I need, thanks!** I’ll need 2 testers.  If you’d like to be one send an e-mail to jessica {at} seedpodcraft {dot} com and let me know how quickly you think you could get it done (give yourself at least a week) and what kind of sewing experience you have. Luckily, all the supplies should be available at your local JoAnn’s and quilt store.  I’ll let you know whether or not I’ll need you as a tester by Wednesday and get the pattern e-mailed to you by Friday next week.

  1. I so want to be a tester but sadly it would probably take me a month to get it done.

    4 weeks!! Where does the time go?

  2. I would like to be a tester, but I don’t think I could promise to get it done in a week or two—I’m teaching piano now among other things!! But I love the idea and think it’s awesome you have been carving out the time to still do things that make you happy and enrich your life, besides being Mama! great work. 😉

  3. Jess, that is sooo adorable! Do you still need a tester – I may be too late but I’d love to do it or at least buy the pattern when it’s ready! Your little Eva is just a doll! I bet Brennas thrilled!

  4. I WISH i had found your site before my boy was born. next baby i have I am totally going to make one of these. so cute.
