I have to apologize for my lack of blogging and replying to comments. No baby yet, but I’ve been one busy mama trying to get ready for little man’s arrival. I was on bed rest up until last week so I’ve been running around like crazy trying to finish everything up and I’m exhausted. I haven’t had much time for blogging or crafting for that matter. The bed rest kind of messed up our Summer Week Themes we had planned out and my list of craft/diy projects I wanted to do.
Car Seat Straps Tutorial

I did pull out my sewing machine and whipped up a few baby items for Baby Z. My favorite are these…
These were actually really easy to make. I simply cut 4 pieces of fabric 5×5 inches and 2 pieces of batting (also 5×5)
I sewed a straight line 1 1/2 inches in on the left and right.
Then I made my own bias tape and sewed it around the perimeter.
Then added velcro (sorry I forgot to take pics of this step)
I also made him two blankets
I adore this print
and a diaper and wipe holder.
This was my first time making all of these items and I’m pretty pleased with the results. I can’t wait until my friends have more babies so that I can make them some of these. They’ll make perfect baby gifts! I feel like I still have a lot to learn about sewing but slowly I’m trying new things. Maybe next time I actually try a quilt..ahh that makes me nervous to think about. Well the doctor thinks I have less than a week before Baby Z arrives so hopefully I get a chance to post before then. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!!
