I had found a few simple patterns that I wanted to whip up. I kicked my feet up to cut out the material, skipped the ironing and sewed everything up real quick. I made hubby a neck pillow. I planned on making myself one as well, but I ran out of stuffing. They come in handy when you have a new baby and always end up sleeping while sitting. I forgot to take a picture of the one I made for Sascha. He loves it and used it to watch tv last night.
The other need, was some more nursing pads. I prefer cotton nursing pads to disposable. I hate paying for something that I am going to toss in the garbage. Plus they are expensive! I can't afford to buy any right now either. I had leftover flannel in my stash from making some cloth diapers. I backed them with a layer of fleece to make them waterproof. I used a 3:1 ratio, 3 flannel layers:1 fleece layer. I used a cd to trace the circles, cut them out with Maria's help and used an overlock stick on my sewing maching to finish them up. I have 9 new pairs of nursing pads.
I have a number of other projects that I want to whip up before baby comes. I have also started a cute little sweater. It is on my knitting needles. I know that I should be resting, but I get so bored. Do you get bored?
God Bless friends,
