Just in case you have been anxiously waiting, month 5 is already here (yeah, that’s the hair w/o the blow dryer, I kinda like it!):
It’s really crazy to me how quickly all of this is going. I’m so excited now because I get to start on the baby quilt and various other baby items since we know it’s a boy! Hopefully I have enough time to get everything done. . . It’s full steam ahead from here on out. I’m thinking I got a good start on some fabric for the quilt because some of my sewing friends and I hit up a craiglist posting for a lady that was liquidating her fabric supply. She was selling some amazing fabrics for $6 a yard. Well, what she didn’t mention was that she had a closet full of ‘scraps’ that she let us stuff into paper bags for $15 a bag. Talk about a score:
I may be going back for another bag of fabric! I think my favorite may have been the sock monkey fabric (upper left). Who knew such a thing existed! And now it’s out of print! Sunday I finished up a pouch sling for a good friend of mine from college – she’s having a little boy too and is due in March. I love the combo of zebra and solid green:
I’m making her husband a sling as well out of camo fabric (he was a ranger in the Army) but I’m waiting on his measurements because he’s a big guy and I make to make sure the ‘extra large’ is indeed large enough for his broad shoulders! And my final sewing project for Sunday evening was patching some jeans for Jason:
Somehow he manages to tear the knees out of his jeans much quicker than it seems like he should be able to! I used this tutorial and I think it turned out pretty well. We’ll see how they hold up. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be doing this on several other pairs of his jeans here shortly!
