OK, a quick update, I keep meaning to give a fuller update and not getting to it.
I now have a whole pile of items for this project – I’ll get a photo up shortly.
I stumbled upon an actual baby bouncer in a charity shop so quickly grabbed it as a design template. From other things I have heard suggested scaling by a factor of 2.5 times – effectively measure the baby version in centimeters and use the same numbers but make yours in inches. Having stuck some large paper together I drew out a paper pattern and it seems to be the right size – like magic. Photos and details of the pattern will follow.
Having got a pattern, I’ve drawn up the outline on some fabric and then I need to get cutting and sewing – which has somehow fall to the side somewhat.
More info, photos and details soon, I promise.
