I just finished making eleven zipper pouches for my hair stylist. She is getting married in a few months, and she bought those as part of her bridesmaid/flower girl gifts. I enjoyed making the bags, but it feels like it took forever. I had to buy 11 matching zippers but could only buy them 2-3 at a time. Then this weekend I realized that I could not find the first three pouches I made two months ago, so I ended up buying 14 matching zippers. I still haven’t found the original set of pouches, but I do have 11 now that are ready to go with me to my appointment Wednesday night and three floating around somewhere for me to find in a few weeks or months or years!
To celebrate being finished with the pouches, I finally made something for me. Well, for my baby. A good friend sent me a bunch of fabric pieces she was no longer using, and one of them comes to me via 1973. I love the flowers on here as well as the colors, so I used some of it to make a set of burp cloths. I actually plan to make several more with other fabrics she sent, but these two had already been washed.
I am working on getting the nursery set up this week and next. I still have three months until B-day, but I like to have all my ducks in a row. It’s been fun dreaming of things to make for the baby and getting some of her clothes and blankets washed and ready for her arrival.
