It's finally time to do some baby sewing! I've been so busy working on items for some friends (I will post pictures after I give them their gifts), that I've just now started sewing for our soon-to-arrive daughter, Jaidyn Marie.
I'm working on a couple crochet-edged flannel blankets for her, and yesterday I cut out the pieces for her baby quilt. It is going to be beautiful, lavender and yellow with some green and pink, but I don't have any pictures yet...just baby burp clothes.
Above, these thick cloth diapers got their edges finished with some bits of my favorite stash scraps. Sometimes those little pieces of loved fabrics do come in handy!
Below, I found 6 of these thin diapers at a garage sale. The looked new, and once I decorated them with pieces of random stash fabric, they became the perfect burp clothes for a stylin' baby!
Most of these are decorated with flannel fabric, which I like better than the ones with cotton fabric. Flannel seems softer and more absorbent, but I'm sure the cotton ones will work well too.
I did make another maternity skirt a couple weeks ago. This was an expensive name-brand skirt that I picked up at the thrift store for $7 or $8 dollars. I cut off the waistband, attached a new elastic waistband in a knit fabric casing, and I have a cute skirt that fits perfectly. This will probably be the last maternity sewing I'll do...only 8 more weeks to go!
I found this tutorial to be very helpful in learning how to make and attach a pregnancy waistband.
That's all for now!
