Baby Projects

I've been meaning to update on my past 'nesting' projects and am just now getting around to it. Tired enough I needed to sit still at the computer I guess. Or I'm just looking for something to do as I patiently await our little one's arrival :-D

Besides the many diapers I completed months ago...

When my mom was here, a month ago, I had some craft shopping to do. I made up some thank you cards for showers and what not gifts. I hemmed a few swaddle blankets, thanks to an amazing shower gift!! I also purchased a little kit to make a shopping cart cover. Boy was that more than I bargained for. I don't like sewing things BIGGER than my machine, not very easy to maneuver.

I also made up some cute bibs with a pattern I saw via KAMsnaps FB page on Things For Boys blog:

I think I was at my peak nesting time about a month ago. Wow I had so much energy it was great! Where has it gone??

About a week - 2 weeks ago I also sewed together some diapers for a friend, about 6 or 7. And got some NEW labels to add :-)

I had these custom labels made at through World Wide Labels

In the last week I've made two cute little football hats; one 6+ months and then one newborn:

I had to make up my own pattern for these so it was nice to practice and get a couple of sizes out of it.

And I also cranked out a pair of fleece longies which are meant to be used over fitted diapers at night, although this newborn pattern looks to run really small.... so they might just be around the house pants.

This fleece longie pattern came from Katrina's Sew Quick Soaker. Since the newborn size was pretty small I decided to make smalls next. Well when I printed off the small pattern it turns out you make the inseam length 'as needed'.... well since I don't have a little one here to measure these are getting put on hold.

And just for fun a 39 week belly photo!
