I am finally allowed to shout this news as loud as I want:
I AM GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!!!! I am so excited that my brother and his wife are having a baby!! This gift is not for them, I like to think of it as a warm up to all the sewing to come :)
My Hubby's cousin is having a baby and I decided to do a homemade gift for them. So I made a few quilted burp cloths, some crinkly taggie toys, a nursing cover, a car seat blanket and a boppy cover. It was a really fun gift to make! She is having a boy and i knew she has sky blue and brown as her colors for the nursery. I did take some pics of possible fabrics and sent them to her so she could pick her favorites. We both had the same favorites, which made it even more fun!
the nursing cover. I wanted it to be in her color palate, but also feminine.
(tutorial coming soon)
Quilted Burp Cloths
Crinkly taggie toys
I made a bunch of these for Peanut Butter when he was a few months old. I used wipes refill bags as the crinkle. I'll make a tutorial for this soon too :)
Boppy cover and car seat blanket. I bought a pillow at Joanns and followed the pattern on the bag. It has an invisible zipper, that was surprisingly easy to sew. Also I stuffed the pillow with extra stuffing because it didn't feel full enough.
With the leftover fabric I made a small blanket that will be a perfect fit when the baby is in the infant car seat.
