Having the sewing machine out of the sewing room seems to help me focus a little! Rather than being distracted by all the possibilities, I can spend my mental capacity on the one project I have at hand. This weekend it was a custom set of four zipper pouches. Check out the beautiful interior fabric! I love the richness of that brown.
I also worked on some new burp cloths. Although I really like the ones I have already made, I wanted to make something a little different. So rather than sew a strip of fabric down the center, I made some appliques and sewed them on the sides. This way the center panel is still clear to catch all that spit-up, but the sides keep things interesting. I used the zig-zag stitch around the edges of the flowers, and let me tell you, it took a long time! There was a lot of sewing 5 stitches, turn the fabric, sew three stitches, turn the fabric…you get the idea! I am really pleased with the outcome though and have put these up in the ID Shop! (The zipper pouch is there as well!)
In other news, some of my friends had a babyshower for me over the weekend, and I felt so loved and celebrated (well, my baby was celebrated!). I am now under the “two months to go” mark, and getting very excited. I’m tired and have a hard time breathing–when I’m sitting down!–but still enjoying being pregnant.
This coming week is a busy one, but I am hoping to start working on that diaper bag this weekend! I even have an extra day for it!
