Diaper love

 This is the Rocket Bottoms one size fitted pattern as an all-in-one diaper. 

The finished project makes me happy in so many ways. For one, it is beautiful 🙂 love the fabric and love how it sews up and fits amazingly well (on the 8 week old and the 2 year old!). 

Secondly, this shows just how far I’ve come with sewing over the past few years. I’ve come a long way from turning and top stitching two layers of flannel together for my first wipes!

  
    
 

Dragon! “rawr”

This project is as done as I am going to get it. It was a fabulous project and is supposed to have wings but I do not think I will ever get to them. Plus with how well my toddler cuddles it I’m thinking it is safer to leave them off 🙂

This is an awesome pattern/tutorial by Heidi Bears on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/smaug-the-african-flower-dragon

It was well worth the price of the pattern. It took a while but in the end was so neat to see the colors and construction coming together! It is quite large and was a perfect birthday present for my 2 year old.

I see many more of her African Flower animals in my future!

 

Stay on booties

These are definitely the cutest things ever and they work 🙂 I’m making them with nice soft warm fabric so socks aren’t needed. Planning on doing plenty of pairs for baby boy and once my grip-tight fabric comes in will make some slippers for the girls at daycare.
