Project of the Moment - Everything is Under Control

Ok, that's a lie!  I always bite off more than I can's the only way I know how to live.

My brother is very close to his band director, so when he announced that he was having a baby (well...I mean his wife), my brother wanted to run to the store and buy him a present.  I convinced my brother to not buy him a present and to let me make an awesome gift instead.  Since my brother is a super busy guy, he said ok and let me have it my way.

I found the perfect fabric and I thought about how I was going to use the fabric to make the most awesome gifts ever.  Here's what I've made and what I plan to make:
  1. Receiving Blanket (done) 
  2. Changing Pad (done)
  3. 2 Burping Cloths (done)
  4. Nursery Decor - I'm still planning this one so it might have to be a late present.
  5. Applique Onesie - (That is if my Mom buys the the moment we don't have a's a long story but we will be getting our car back soon...I hope!)  
I made the fabric waterproof for the changing pad...I'll share more about how I made it later.
I am also working on a pinafore (and a double skirt) for my cousin's daughter (whose birthday is around the same time as the baby shower) to practice what I should have already sewn for my sewing for kids e-course (yeah I'm behind).  I'll show you what I made after the party...wouldn't want to ruin the surprise.  :)

Oh, and I am also in the midst of sorting through a million pictures on my computer because I'm running out of space!  You can check out some of my photography on my other blog here.  I wish there were more hours in the day!

p.s. - Happy Birthday to my brother!!!!
