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!
