It is fun project; and it is easy for the beginner sewer. On my opinion the experience of nesting this way is stronger (if you do at least one of the project preparations for your coming baby). Do you know what I mean? People don(tm)t have a lot of chances to being freshly backed parents, because usually we have just one or maybe two kids, so this time in our life is magical, and they grow so fast anyway. DIY is fun, and you could spend less for more (less money for more design); and this project is the one you will remember it for your whole life, I know I will, because it is not just a project, it is something that I made for my baby. And last I like the shape of the egg at the bottom. I did try to make the shape as close wicker basket as possible, because when I was a baby I sleep a few months in a basket in an egg shape. At the same time, I try to have simple design, because I like to share with lovely sewing community and because everybody doesn(tm)t have possibility to use more wooden tools then a handsaw is, so the construction of the cradle is simple too. But that don(tm)t mean that design is boring or that it is not modern and fresh. I play with a machine freehand stitching and I write the lullaby like some kind of modern version of lace
Have you made this pattern?

As a kid I want to do everything by myself....and I still live like this, except, now I want to play also with others and I love to show and teach how to play with fabric, so I did start to work on sewing step by step tutorials with my own patterns.
Will you play with me? Come, the fun is starting...
