I think I'm finally ready for the baby shower. This weekend, I made a diaper bag with the left over material from the baby bumpers and crib shirt, I have 4 crib sheets, and 6 burp clothes. What no bibs? how on earth did I let that happen??? Well I have a few more weeks before the shower (gee can you tell I'm excited????)
Here's some pics: diaper bag first. The baby's name is Miles, but I like to call him Smiles - this is the same fabric as the bedding. I embroidered on the front flap. I think the letters came from Bunnyhill, they had a retired set that was free. The little smiley face (hard to see n the picture, but easier in real life, came off the machine standard stuff, but darn cute! Front and back outside both have 2 pockets, same with the inside. So lots of pockets. The sides have long skinny pockets, I haven't found anything to put in those yet, but I'm sure I will. And it's 100% washable - I love washable with babies. On the side is a cute little Owl rattle that I found.
The back shows the pockets a little more. Yes I have the bag filled with all kinds of little goodies for the little guy.
And the inside. Ok I think I'm done with my bag phase now.
Oh and then I had so much fun making the little burp clothes. I used diaper fabric (who knew they had diaper fabric? I found some and I got it). Oh it is just sooooooo soft. If I were Miles I would want to be burped all the time so I could lay my little face on that yummy soft goodness. They say it becomes more absorbent as you wash it, I just hope it stays as soft. So I made 6, 2 are duplicates. I had just enough of the magician fabric to make 2 so I used it up. Ya, the orange one isn't really all that manly, but hey, Mom deserves something a little cutsie when someone is spitting on her shoulder :)
And then there were sheets. One was the owl fabric to match everything. The other 3 were flannels, soft and cuddly. Little pirates soft and cuddly? You bet look at them !!
Did I tell you I like sewing for babies :) Linking up with Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations and Judy at Patchwork Times
