So, the more I think about baby J's first birthday, the more I just want to be creative. I'm in intermediate seamstress, but most days you wouldn't know it because I get antsy in my pantsy and mess up. O well, I tell myself, as I rip out another failed stitch line ;)
So, I have 1+ yards of OBV (organic bamboo velour) that has been scaring me for over 6 months. It just sits there because I feel like it needs to become something great and I haven't had the craftiness to create much of anything lately. So, I'm going to make baby J a blanket out of it, similar to this one
I've also been working on converting 100% wool sweaters into pants and shorts for JW aka Baby J. I don't have any elastic, so I need to go get some. For those of you scratching your heads as to why I would make my baby pants out of old sweaters, well we cloth diaper and wool is just about the best cover. It's water resistant, breathable, and cute :)
I'll report back next week after we get back from visiting my brother with any other hair-brained ideas I have of craftiness. Until then, ta-ta!
