Baby Shower Gifts!!

Let me begin by saying that if you don't want your kitchen sink to spring a leak, causing havoc in your kitchen, please avoid blogging about your kitchen remodel. The very day after I posted that article is when we discovered the leak. Funny, huh?

Anyway, now I get to show you all the things I was working on for my best friend Sarah!

First are the diaper pouches. I made one for Richard (I figured brown flannel was pretty manly) and one for Sarah (to match the nursing cape!). I used this tutorial from Noodlehead. I loved how they came out!

These are the perfect size to throw in your purse or to-go bag when you don't need the whole diaper bag.

Next up is the matching nursing cape from Diary of a Quilter. The front part has a piece of boning in it so Sarah can peek down at Robert without the anyone else being able to see anything. I love the print of this fabric! I know it's not very boy-ish, but this is for Mama!

Then we have the cutest little things... diaper covers from MADE. These were so easy to make! I had hoped that the cheap-o serger that I purchased last year would make these an even quicker project, but it doesn't exactly work... Oh well! Sewing them up went pretty quick! I had never worked with elastic before, so I was excited to have the opportunity!

And finally, the baby blanket! This one definitely took a while, but I absolutely love it!! I used this tutorial from Aesthetic Nest. It was so much fun to make my own chenille! I began this project thinking that I would take the time and cut the lines with scissors, but I'm SO GLAD I invested in a chenille cutter. I'll definitely be making more of these in the future! I thought I'd add a little personal touch by embroidering Robert's name on the blanket.

Now it's time for summertime projects!!
Thanks to Michelle for these photos!

Basically, the Pioneer Woman is my hero. I'd love to live on a sprawling ranch, cook all day and raise my gorgeous children. As for now, though, that will have to wait. This will most likely be a very random blog, covering things like parenting a pig, crafting, teaching myself how to sew, cooking, and whatever else I happen to think of. Hope you enjoy!
