It's been quite a while, but I'm back! After a long, long bed rest, a miserable labor and a lengthy trip to the NICU the family is all together again and everybody is healthy.
I haven't made anything yet, but ever since I was put on bed rest I have been itching to sew something. Well, now I have a couple of projects lined up.
Grace will be going into a toddler bed soon and I've been scouring the Internet and various catalogs to find toddler bedding...none of which I like and all of which are way too costly. Therefore, I will be making my own toddler bedding. It will include a duvet cover (to fit the pottery barn toddler down comforter), a fitted sheet, pillow covers and a bed skirt...well, maybe a bed skirt. I won't be making a flat sheet because Grace just doesn't need it. She might not even take the down comforter because it may conflict with her blanket, aka "buntin". We will just have to sew and see!
The next project on my agenda is to sew the little one, Claire, some leg warmers. It's silly simple. All I have to do is buy some funky knee high socks, make a few cuts and sew a few stitches. Silly simple! It's going to save so much money rather than buying the baby legs brand, or any other brand for that matter. I will get three pairs of baby leggings for the price of one pre-made. Very excited for this project.
I'm also currently making a knitting bag for myself and a friend; and by currently I mean I have the pattern cut out...that's it.
Also in the works, but won't be ready to go for a while is a diaper bag. I've been making preliminary sketches...(bed rest gave me a lot of time to draw and design)...and I'll start configuring measurements soon. I'm trying to just figure out what is really needed in my diaper bag, especially with two, and how to best construct it.
Can't wait to put it all out there. Also got a new camera witch will give you some excellent photographs without much editing on my end. YAY!
