DIY!

So, since I've been off work, it feels like ALL I've done is craft and sew! I seriously can't stop or "relax". I feel like I have to be doing something productive at all times. And since the house is clean and organized thanks to me and my mom's diligence while Doug was on vaca, plus I'm not allowed to really clean or "do" too much anyways, I've been doing project after project for Parker!

I've made 2 changing pad covers (one is yellow elephants, the other is the green minky & the blue animal print):



2 boppy covers:



the "P is for Parker" print:



the fabric wrapped P:



and my latest and greatest creation, a stacked coin quilt:



I am really proud of the quilt, even though it's NOWHERE near perfect. But I learned a lot! I am on the lookout for some cute fabric to make the next one.. I'm thinking a Halloween one and a Christmas one (fabric.com has adorable fabrics for both):





I am still working on the puff quilt (just need to hand sew the binding):


And a crochet blanket (need more yarn):



And my next projects are a diaper/wipes case (ordered the CUTEST fabric for this):



And a swaddler (on the lookout for fabric for this).

I'm hoping I have enough projects to last me at least until our busy time starts - August 11th we have a bunch of parties, the 13th is the breastfeeding class, and the 18th is our childbirth class. The following weekend is our 3D/4D sonogram and my baby shower! I also plan on doing a maternity shoot and possibly a Babymoon sometime after that..

After the shower, at least I'll be busy organizing all the stuff we get and washing his clothes, etc. And then it won't be too much longer 'til he's here! I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

OMG! I love all your project, so proud of you! That quilt is amazing. P is one lucky guy. You look SO pretty as a preggo! (and as not a preggo LOL)

It was soo easy! I followed this tutorial:

Except I did one fabric for the back (flannel) instead of putting another strip of patchwork.
