DIY Sewing Projects for Mom & Baby!


My sister-in-law will have a new baby come November!  I thought I would make her a couple of things that she can use and will hopefully like!  First are two reversible bibs that she can use on her little boy until he no longer wants to wear them :D.

I traced one of my sons bibs to make these two.  One of the bibs has fleece on one side and terry cloth on the other. I used white bias tape and a red zig zag pattern.  I think the one on the right came out a tad better. That one is terry cloth and I made my own bias tape!  They both have velcro on them.(I bought a towel that I cut up for my bibs!).


I also made her 3 different burp cloths.  One of them has the curves to them. I simply traced one that I had at home and it served well as a pattern.  The other is simply a rectangle.  The third is one using a cloth diaper. I added some fabric for embellishment.  If your baby spits up a lot, these might come in handy!


And finally, here is the receiving blanket I made!  This one I think is my favorite!
I used one yard of fabric on each side.


Please contact me if you need any more details or more specifics!

Oh, thanks! I didn't. Fabric on fabric, nothing in between. :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
