For those of you who don't know, I'm getting ready to welcome my 3rd baby (first girL) in just about...well, any day now. So as you can imagine there has been a lot of BabY on the BraIn as of late. Especially once I realized (about a week ago) that I have not 'made' anything for her yet. I also realized (about a week ago) that I was a little short in the blanket department...unless you count all the blue ones packed away in storage. So in this instance what would any rational 9 month pregnant woman do...take herself to the local Target to purchase a few...probably. But I'm a different kind of crazy and decided I would still try to make some instead. So that I did.
I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby. Love it. Also love the so very cozy minky...but must say it's a beast to sew!
I wanted to add a little something extra and turned this once felt flower Easter garland (also Hobby Lobby) into a little embellishment.
I probably should have prefaced this post by saying (and I know I've said it before...many times) I don't sew. Never have had a lesson (unless you count me sitting on my grandma's lap at the age of 7 'helping' her sew up a few pillowcases). I don't know the terms, don't know how to use a pattern, I'm really not quite sure if I even thread my sewing machine correctly...I'm totally winging it! But nevertheless. I don't think baby's even gonna notice. What she will remember (hopefully) is that the blanket that she dragged around for years and years when she was little was made with love...crooked lines and all.
So the moral of the story for today is...go for it! Try something new. Something you might not have clue how to begin. Make some mistakes. Then try it again. So what if the lines aren't 'PerfeCt'. That doesn't stop me. And it shouldn't stop you either!
Stay tuned for my next installment...'CraZy Pregnant Lady That Doesn't Sew Makes a QuiLt'. Ha! Just the thoughts of it makes me laugh!!
