Oh, Baby {29 weeks}

I have not been nearly as productive with my sewing this week as I was last week.  However, I did make a few little projects for baby boy.  I showed you some last week, and thought I might make this a friday feature until he makes his debut (due date is April 26).


I made a pillow using the cheater print from Fox Hollow to go on the bed in his nursery.  All I did was add some batting and quilt in the ditch of the cheater print.  Pretty easy!   I still want to make a fox shaped pillow or something else fun for this bed.


Next up is a stack of flannel baby wipes (for the cloth diaper thing) made from various Anna Maria Horner flannels.  I used my serger to go around the edges.  Easy peasy, just one layer at 8" square.  I need a few more, I think, but those are pretty boring to make so I had to break it into two sessions! 


My biggest accomplishment this week was the fitted crib sheet.  I used the  Prudent Baby tutorial for a serged sheet.  It actually was my quickest finish of the week and ended up being very easy.  It is funny sometimes how certain tasks seem so daunting and end up being no biggie at all!  I made the crib sized pillowcase using the hot dog method a few weeks ago.  I am not going to bother with bumpers.  I think they were in use for about a week with my other two boys, so it kind of seems like a wasted effort. 

Luckily I am not yet sick of my woodland nursery theme.  I have a nursery board on pinterest with lots of other woodland ideas, in case you are interested.  Next up on my project list is Anna's divided basket.  I just need to get some interfacing...  

I hope you have had a great week, enjoy your Friday! xo, Courtney

  4. I sewed the prudent baby crib sheet as a gift for my new niece last fall and I was nervous about it too. It was so easy. It is funny how you worry so much about a project that turns out to be no big deal. I love the woodland theme in your nursery!!!

    account amount, and many others) and now hindered my own e-mail target by having an error communication which usually affirms “Eric’s e-mail address
    is not legitimate anymore”, however it’s almost certainly up and running once again.
    Facts is actually My partner and i provided a note to help the tackle from a different site (considered one of my personal
    some other e-mail covers) we could not receive an error message… darn…tghthgthgg Daniel help myself stick to my personal curriculum vitae in the
