Car Seat Cover using this pattern. I still need to wipe down the car seat and wash the padding, but that will have to wait until I get around to it.
Prayer Intention Book Cover. This is acutally a cheep photo album that I bought on sale a long time ago after seeing this idea on pinterest. It is supposed to be a prayer book for the children. I have started to gather photos of people and families that we want to remember in our prayer intentions. The digital age has made this a little more tedious. I don't have many hard copies of the people I want to include. I have to order some prints to add. BUT, at least the cover is done. It was a white wedding album with a little shadow box with a gown and tux in it. I initially thought they would be easy to remove, but I was wrong, hence the cover.
A Baby Bib using this pattern. I whipped it up out of the scraps that I had left over from making the car seat cover. The original isn't pieced, but none of my scraps were big enough. It is backed with some fleece that I had laying around.
I will share a picture of the wall hanging once I have it hanging. I just bound it, but didn't add the hanging sleeve yet. I am in no rush because I have no where to hang it yet. My sweet 'painter' husband has offered to paint the office/sewing room this coming long weekend. I will try to get it done after that. I am excited to have a pretty space for my creative endeavors even if I will soon be taking a babymoon break.
As far the reading part of my needle and thread post is concerned, I have a confession to make. I haven't been reading much lately. I spend every waking moment preparing for the baby or spending time outdoors with the kids. When I open a book, it puts me to sleep instantly. I guess that is all part of being pregnant.
I also did some sewing that wasn't on my to-do list yesterday and it includes a tutorial. Take a look if you have time.
God Bless and thanks for stopping by.
