No not mine, no more babies for me, but it seems like everyone I know is pregnant. My sister-in-law, my cousin, my friend, my ex sister-in-law... I'm sure there are others..
But the thing is, only one of those is a girl, so I've been a little excited to make some girlie stuff finally.
I made a few washcloths already and still have a few more to make. One side is super soft terry cloth, the other is a soft flannel.
One set for my nephew
And one set for my friend's girl
While I was shopping for the flannel for those washcloths, I had another idea. How about some changing pads? I made these as a travel diaper & diapers wipes bag/changing pad. I've seen several variations of these online and I didn't use any pattern, just kinda winged it.
The camo one is for my sister-in-law and will match the carseat I redid for her last month. I did the camo one first.
The little pocket at the top can be for a wipe case or diapers, if diapers are in it it can also serve as a cushion for babies head. And yes I do plan on recovering the wipes case to match both of these.
These are actually not too hard to do. The pad part itself I found in the remnant bin, it is vinyl tablecloth material! I put 2 thin layers of batting between the pad and backing fabric, and sewed the tie string and pocket on then added the binding all around. The camo is a canvas-y type of material.
The pink camo I did next, I had to do this one a little different because I didn't have as much pink camo fabric and because the way it was cut already, it was left over from a previous project. I actually like how this one turned out and will probably go with this style on any future ones I make.
I chose not to have binding on this one, so I sewed RST then flipped and top-stitched all around. Instead of a pocket I just made flaps and added velcro strips to keep it closed. Then I just sewed the flap and ties on right over the top-stitching. The pink camo and tie strings are a soft cotton jersey.
I love how the pink one turned out!
I will be linking up here and would love for you to go have a look around, these are some great linky parties and I get tons of inspiration.
Have a great day everyone!!
