Diaper bag

A firend of mine took care of my kids back in January while I visited family.  she is expecting #4, so I offered to make her a diaper bag as a thank you.

She picked the size, style, and colors, and here is what we came up with.  
The true color didn't show up until the last pic... so it's cuter in real life.

Dr Seuss sleep sacks

A customer ordered 2 sleep sacks, and wanted them made from the new Dr Seuss fabric line. 

The fabric is really cute... except the grinch... he's not so nice looking.  :)

Chenille Blanket

A few weeks back, I decided that maybe the chenille blanket wasn't so time consuming after all... I now had a handy chenille cutter to help with the tedious job, so I gave it another shot.  Cutting was super easy with my handy cutter... plus, there is less chance to accidentally cut though all layers.

Edit: you can find a tutorial for the blanket here 
I find it works best to sew your lines 1/2 " apart- some tutorials say you can do them further apart, but it doesn't look or feel as nice.  
Also, DO NOT pre wash your fabric or you will not get the 'gathered" look.  
Have fun!

Nursing covers

These 2 covers were made for a couple friends who either had, or are about to have a new baby. I'm sure they will be well used for the next few months.
