I was going through my stash of fabric-i-bought-because-it-was-cute-and-on-super-sale and decided "what the heck, lets make boppy covers (even thought I've never used them)". I just wanted to sew something - and I had the supplies. So, I traced my boppy pillow to create the pattern, cut out the fabric, sewed the two pieces together while including the zipper, and ta-da. Two quick and easy flannel boppy covers. I put them on my etsy site, but nobody wants them :-/

Aunt Eileen gave me some great fabric a while back. Among this fabric was a cool bicycle fabric I'd been itching to use. Eventually I paired it with a corduroy I had in my stash and I made a mini messenger bag. It's pretty nifty.

A friend recently asked me to make a semi fancy dress for her newborn. They had a wedding to attend and couldn't find anything appropriate for the baby. I used this tutorial for the bodice of the dress, but I altered the straps to snap together instead of tie in a bow. The flowers are satin circles I sewed together and seared (to prevent fraying). The skirt of the dress is a layer of satin fabric with a layer of matching chiffon on top. I made a matching diaper cover using this tutorial.
