Just some shots of the finished diapers for my sister’s baby.
I kinda forgot to photograph some of the large ones but they were just plain blues and browns. I still owe her the covers and I’ll be working on those today.
Yes, you read that right!
My hubby gave an entire 48 hours to “whip up” something for a friend’s baby shower this week. Don’t you just love men? Well I was about to tell him to get a gift card because I was swamped when I had this super cute idea. The friend is a disc golf buddy of my husband’s and is having his first baby next month. What better gift than to start him early in the sport?
I’ve made this style bag 4 times now(including this one) so I can practically make it in my sleep and without bothering to make a pattern. An hour of sewing and it was done.
Hubby contributed three mini discs(hubby plays standard disc golf but there are mini disc courses as well)to complete the gift. It was so cute when finished that I wanted to keep it!
I may make another one just to use as a mini, stealth purse. It’d be super easy to wear this under a coat.
These worked up fast but turned out a bit wonky. I think I may have worked too fast. And these are so tiny! The other booties posted were 6 months size and these are newborn. I put a penny in the picture so you can see how small and cute they are!
I got the pattern here: http://www.maked.ca/tutorials.html
I made a diaper bag for a friend’s baby shower. I used Alexander Henry’s Yoko fabric for the outer and a lightweight embroidered polyester for the inner. It’s completely interfaced and sturdy. It’s also bigger than any diaper bag I’ve ever used or seen. Hopefully I’ll have time before next Saturday to make a changing pad to go with it but since I’m going to a double shower and need to make another one of these for the other guest of honor I just don’t know if I’ll get to it. I hope she likes it!
I did something radical with this project and used someone else’s tutorial instead of the fun of winging it. I have to stop trying to do everything myself and take advantage of other’s generosity when offered. So thank you Sew Much Ado! http://sewmuchado.blogspot.com/2008/12/free-diaper-bag-tutorial.html
