I've been quite absent from the blog world lately, but I do have something to show for it, beside a 6-month pregnant belly. I've recovered my old, worn out infant car seat with the help of the best $5.00 tutorial ever. Soooo worth buying if you've never even attempted this kind of project before. Saved me many mistakes and countless redo's. I bought it off of etsy from pukingpastilles. Great lady, and very talented!
I had leftover fabric, since I bought too much thinking I would screw up more than once. So, I have made some seat belt cover pads, a baby crib/stroller blanket and a traveling changing pad cover, too.
I've also been busy trying out all sorts of the free tutorials that I posted about. I made a diaper bag that turned out pretty good. Not sure my skill level was really up to this, but 4-5 broken needles later, I figured it out and kind of like, too. I got the tutorial from A Mingled Yarn for the Hip Mamma Diaper Bag.
I also made a new cover for my Boppy Nursing Pillow using the tutorial on the Make Your Own Baby Stuff blog using the Breastfeeding Pillow Case Pattern. Out of the same material, which I just love!, I made a matching nursing poncho/cover, my first pair of baby legs, and a baby sling carrier.
See the baby boy bedding set next to the pillow? I picked that up a few years back for $5.00 at Wal-Mart. I've been convinced my next baby would be a boy for a few years now. Good thing I was right!?
I have redone this little dresser that was a hand-me-down from Grandma and Grandpa twice now. It used to have pink drawers for my girls, but I re-painted them a light green color to be more boyish.
I have also been making a little extra money selling these baby diaper wipes carrying cases on e-bay lately, so I've made a million of these, too.
I still need to recover the old and ugly white bassinet for Baby Logan, finish recovering the canopy for the carseat, and about a million other things before he's born. I'll update later, when I get more done.
