sew, sew, sew























I finally got around to sewing up all of those beautiful fabrics I had purchased last month. I still have a lot of things I'd like to make, and enough leftover fabric to do so, but for now I thought I'd give you a look at my new lovelies:)
















I haven't had a chance to get a new sewing machine yet (Thank you Julie for all the advice!), so considering that I made all of these with my little toy sewing machine, I'm pretty happy with the finished products.





















Thus far I've made 2 reversible changing pad covers that double as portable change mats, a crib blanket, 4 reversible bibs, a pacifier clip and a light-weight blanket, not to mention the crib bumper, crib skirt, duvet cover and pink pillows I made while pregnant. I was able to get more sewing done this past weekend and made a cute little pinafore for the mini papercut. I have a couple patterns for more baby clothes that I'm eager to try out, but I think I'll wait for my new sewing machine before attempting them.
















I never thought I'd enjoy sewing as much as I have. I was never all that fond of Home-EC class, but now that I have little people to sew for I'm having lots of fun!

Nie job! Sewing for the kids is a lot of fun, isn't it? You've inspired me to attack my fabric pile.

ALL of these are so adorable!! You've inspired me to attack my fabric pile also;) Do you have a pattern or tutorial for that changing pad cover? I'd LOVE to make it:) Found you from OhDeeoh!

do you have instructions for the bibs? I don't know how to sew but I love those & my 3 mos old bibs are too small for her.

Thanks Janna + Liz! I wasn't even aware that we were on Ohdeedoh, so thanks for the heads up:)

Since you've both asked about the bibs and changepad cover, I'm thinking of posting a tutorial for both. They were really simple to make...super easy for beginners!

wanted to chime in for a tutorial for the changing pad covers! I think your choice of color is a refreshing look vs all the same ol same ol blues and pink patterns out there. What would be the size of the piece of fabric that would cover the enitre changing pad?
