Sewing Tips : Basic stitch

This video show you how to stitch leather parts.

STEP 1 : DOUBLE LOOP

Always draw the needle twice at the beginning and at the end of sewing.
The purpose of this step is to simply fix the thread.

Balance the thread to ensure there is an equal amount of thread on both sides.

STEP 2 : REGULAR STITCH

For each regular stitch you need to pass one needle from top to bottom through the corresponding holes on the leather parts and bring the other needle up from bottom to top through the same holes.

Keep on stitching, using the same rhythm for every stitch. For example: left needle first, right needle second.

Pull the thread at each stitch. Not too tight, just to keep the stitches even.

STEP 3 : BACK STITCH

When you get to the edge, pass the needle back through the last hole a second time. The purpose of this step is to make the stitch more secure.

Cold baby feet | First Baby Shoes

Adults are often surprised how cold are baby feet. There is nothing unusual in it. Infants cannot fully regulate their body temperatures, so parents have to take care of it. First Baby Shoes loves baby feet, so we recommend all of you reading the article below. It will answer all the questions you may have about baby feet’s temperature.

imagesCauses

Your child is born not yet fully developed. After birth, his circulatory system is still learning to supply his entire body with blood. Its priority is to send blood to the vital organs — the heart, lungs, digestive and urinary organs. Because of this, blood is redirected away from the less vital parts, like the feet. Less blood flow means your little one’s feet can become cold.

Dressing Your Infant

Just because your infant’s feet feel cold doesn’t mean its time to bundle him up in a blanket, hat and booties. Here’s the rule of thumb: Dress your infant just like you would dress yourself, then add one extra layer. Gauge whether your infant is warm enough by touching his torso. If it feels warm and is tinged pink, your baby is fine. Keep your baby’s head warm, however, because heat can be lost through the surface. An infant cap should do.

Taking a Temperature
If you are unsure or concerned about your baby’s cold feet or the way he is dressed, take his temperature. A normal rectal temperature should be around 100.2 degrees Fahrenheit or less in an infant. If your infant’s temperature is 97.6 or less, he may be feeling cold. In that case, add a layer of warmth.
When to Worry

At times, cold feet can be a sign of something more serious going on inside your infant’s body. Cold feet can be a symptom of meningitis, a disease in which the spinal cord and brain become inflamed. If your infant has cold feet as well as a high fever, bulging fontanelle, irritability, shortness of breath, back and neck stiffness, a limp body, vomiting, no appetite, blotchy skin, extreme fatigue or a painful body, head to an emergency room. Untreated, meningitis can be fatal.

What you have to know about baby feet

Baby feet are probably one of the first things parents and family comment on about a newborn baby. They’re just so cute, aren’t they? We are just fascinated with baby feet. We love to giggle them, cuddle and kiss. We also know how important is to take care of them properly, especially in first years. There are few things everyone should know about little baby feet.

  1. At six months of age, a baby’s foot is still mostly cartilage. In fact, some of the bones only start forming between 9-18 months. By 18 years of age, most of the bones are formed.
  2. Baby feet only need protection in cooler weather. Grow suits with feet, socks or small, soft natural fibre shoes should be used to keep twinkle toes warm and should always be loose around your baby’s feet.
  3. Making time for your baby to kick freely will help with the development of leg and feet muscles.
  4. Children usually begin to walk between 10 and 20 months of age. Every child is unique and will move through the developmental stages at their own pace.
  5. When your child begins to walk, shoes should only be used when protection is needed from the ground. Allowing children to go barefoot or wearing very soft shoes helps the foot to typically develop and assists in strengthening the muscles.
  6. Due to rapid growth in width and length while young, frequent changes in the size of socks and shoes may be necessary. Do a check every one to three months up until age 3, every four months up to the age of five and every six months up to the age of six.
  7. Always have both feet measured for length and width. The shoe should fit the natural shape of the foot, especially around the toes.
  8. The toe of the shoe should allow toes to move freely and not be squashed from the top or the sides. Make sure there is about 10mm of growing room for children between the end of the longest toe and the edge of the shoe.
  9. Shoes should fit comfortably around the heel and not be too loose or too tight.
  10. Having shoes fitted correctly by a store that offers trained assistants to ensure the correct size and shape to keep little feet running and jumping.

Forget what you know | First Baby Shoes

Today I would like to introduce one video from TED x Talks in 2012.

Stop learning and start thinking and creating imagination.

Here is You Tube introduction.

Jacob Barnett is an American mathematician and child prodigy. At 8 years old, Jacob began sneaking into the back of college lectures at IUPUI. After being diagnosed with autism since the age of two and placed in his school’s special ed. program, Jacob’s teachers and doctors were astonished to learn he was able to teach calculus to college students.

At age nine, while playing with shapes, Jacob built a series of mathematical models that expanded Einstein’s field of relativity. A professor at Princeton reviewed his work and confirmed that it was groundbreaking and could someday result in a Nobel Prize. At age 10, Jacob was formally accepted to the University as a full-time college student and went straight into a paid research position in the field of condensed matter physics. For his original work in this field, Jacob set a record, becoming the world’s youngest astrophysics researcher. His paper was subsequently accepted for publication by Physical Review A, a scientific journal shared on sites such as NASA, the Smithsonian, and Harvard’s webpage. Jacob’s work aims to help improve the way light travels in technology.

Jacob is also CEO and founder of Wheel LLC, a business he started in his mom’s garage, and is in the process of writing a book to help end “math phobia” in his generation.

Jacob’s favorite pastime is playing basketball with the kids at his charity, Jacob’s Place. It is a place where kids with autism are inspired every day to be their true authentic selves…just like Jacob.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

When to put your baby in shoes | First Baby Shoes

There’s no need to put your baby in shoes until she’s a well-established walker. Until then, shoes act as a piece of baby clothing for keeping her feet warm or her socks on, so stick with very soft, flexible bootee-types of footwear made from fabric or very soft leather. Even these could cause damage if they’re too tight, so always make sure they’re the right size. Once she’s moving around, going barefoot as much as possible indoors will help strengthen her arches and leg muscles, and makes it easier for her to spread her toes, which will offer her support, especially on a slippery floor.

Time for proper shoes arrives when she’s been walking steadily for at least six weeks. When choosing a first shoe, pick something with lightweight, flexible, non-slip soles, a soft leather upper and strong, adjustable fastenings. 

First Baby Shoes are made for babies taking their first steps.

Accidentally rediscovered | First Baby Shoes

When you do something very hard and try again and again constantly, sometimes it happens that accidentally you rediscover ( or discover) something very important. First Baby Shoes design shoes for many years, but during designing process we often discover something new. That is why we like our job so much!

Today’s article is about new material. Maybe for many people this may not be interesting, but if this discovery has a big impact on our life, then probably many people will recognize it as a great discovery.

This is article from WIRED category science.

Marilyn-Iridescent-660x440

If you hold a sheet close and blow on it, you’ll see the famous face of Marilyn Monroe. Blow on another sheet and a word will appear.

A new iridescent plastic that reveals hidden images with a breath is described in a recent paper published in Advanced Materials. Researchers at the University of Michigan hope to use this technology for anti-counterfeiting purposes, replacing the ubiquitous hologram stickers used on things like luxury handbags and passports with a humidity-activated logo (or celebrity).

Like peacock feathers and butterfly wings, the sheets are iridescent because they are covered with tiny regular structures that diffract light. Their surface is studded with a grid of columns, called nanopillars, each 100 times thinner than a human hair. Previous generations of nanopillars were extremely fragile, breaking when handled or rubbed. By using a blend of polyurethane and epoxy instead of a brittle material like silicon, the researchers were able to make the sheets flexible and durable enough to survive a trip to market.

When a peacock gets wet, it loses its shine. Water droplets scatter incoming light, destroying the intricate interference responsible for its shimmering colors. The researchers accidentally rediscovered this phenomenon when one of them breathed on an iridescent sheet and it became more transparent. To take advantage of this, they used a customized inkjet printer to deposit a thin water-repellant coating in the shape of an image—Marilyn’s face, above. When you breathe on the sheet, water condenses on the sheet and makes it transparent—everywhere but on the outline of her face.

“What you see in these images is just the beginning,” says study author Nicholas Kotov. By adding layers of nanoparticles with interesting optical properties, Kotov hopes to produce sheets that look distinctive and are hard to replicate, at least without state-of-the-art equipment. The difficulty of making these sheets gives them an advantage over current anti-counterfeiting measures—at least for now. But today’s state of the art is in tomorrow’s desktop fab lab, and the cat-and-mouse game with counterfeiters is sure to continue.

Have a nice weekend!
