My amazon wishlist

Wah! I've been doing lots of sewing lately and my sewing machine just died on me! It's nothing serious and I've been meaning to take it in for a tune-up anyway. So I guess that helps my solve my problem of what to do with my few minutes of free time (sew or knit)! Well, at least for a week or so anyway.
I guess I can show some pics of what I've been making. First, a flannel sheet for Henry's cosleeper. I know this doesn't sound very exciting, but it really is! The arm's reach mini cosleeper has this odd little mattress and regular crib or bassinet sheets do not fit. The sheet that came with it shrunk so now it's really tight and pulls the mattress up a little bit. I ordered an (expensive) replacement sheet online, but I think they sent the wrong one because it is way too big. So anyway, I got this flannel for NINETY-SIX CENTS (!!!) at JoAnn's the day after Thanksgiving. I laid the mattress on top of it to take my measurements and bound all the edges with foldover elastic. Success! A perfect fit.
I also finished up 6 fitted diapers in size medium. I used the Very Baby diaper pattern. There are 3 layers--the outer layer is a knit print and the 2 other layers are absorbent cotton sherpa.
(sorry--I am too lazy to add any links today)
AWW! Those little sheepy diapers are TOO CUTE! Almost makes me wanna make them for my baby(s). But only almost. I did traditional cloth diapers for my two oldest children and I really don't wanna go back.
You are so good with the sewing machine. I hope it gets fixed soon. I was hoping to see some of those booties you posted about on TPP Yahoo site. I may have to give them a try.
Very sweet dipes!!! I just started sewing diapers and am having a blast, learning from my mistakes and experimenting!Post a Comment
