4 weeks later...

In case you had gotten around to wondering, my disappearance has been due to the arrival of a beautiful baby girl back on July 3. We are totally in love and while crafting has been on hold, I have big plans for a time when things are a bit more settled and regular :) Obviously, she fit in the newborn gown I made although I'm pretty sure that a mere 3.5 weeks later she doesn't anymore.

So for now, I have enough things that I made before her arrival that it will hopefully keep me posting until I can get around to making some new things. I have a few necessary projects coming up fairly soon (wow babies go through a lot of cloth wipes! Once my fabric gets here I think I'll be making approximately a million of those) and then a project just for me, and then I'll start figuring out what kind of things she might need that I can make.....although admittedly most of the things I want to make for her won't be practical or fit for another....oh 2 years at least haha. Anyway, I will start posting more regularly now and catch up to myself hopefully. I think I'll also try to rework my goals for the remainder of the year since they are obviously changing :)

Changing Pad

Yep, still here, still blogging, still no baby on the outside. Ah well, soon. As promised, next up is a changing pad that I made to go with the diaper bag I made. I thought it would be nice to have a whole set. I found a pattern here at Homemade by Jill and the only thing I changed was using PUL instead of vinyl. I figured it would be softer and just as easy to clean although as it turns out, it is a complete pain in the butt to sew with. I used it for both the one side of this and also for the wet bags. Oh, and I made my own binding as well. Really that's all there is to say about this one. Maybe there will be more once I can test it out haha, but we shall see.

Next up is....well either the wet bags, or a 4th of july project I made for baby which it may or may not get here in time to enjoy.
