Sewing

I've been sewing a few little projects during my free moments. It is scrap buster month at Sew Mama Sew so they've been featuring fun ideas for using up small amounts of fabric. (By the way, I love that website. It always gets my creative juices flowing again.)

Here is a binkie holder that fits 2 binkies. I can throw this in the diaper bag and keep the binkies lint and crumb free. It was so fun to make that I'm making a few more for baby gifts. So don't look Mandy! :-)
Here's the view of the inside. I sandwiched a stiff iron-on lining between the fabrics to give it more shape.

And these headbands have been totally addictive to make. I've made about 20 of them. They'll probably be showing up as Christmas gifts.....

I planned to sew one of these Moby style baby slings but I couldn't find the right kind of fabric for a decent price. I found this on Etsy for cheaper than I could have made it! It is very comfortable and snuggles Leif quite nicely.

Hi Jen. What kind of sling do you like to use? I'll try to find the binkie holder tutorial and link to it. :-)

I saw a "tinkle tent" or something like that today at a craft fair. It was basically a little fabric cone that you put over the you-know-what when you're changing the diaper so you don't get tinkled on (in the face!) They must be for babies that don't wiggle. Hmmm.

I have a Sling Eazy. I LOVE it! I can literally do anything while wearing it, including nurse. Wearing a baby sure makes having a baby way easier. Ha!
