Flooring and sewing!

I had to pass the time this week, while our new floors were being installed.  I had a very tiny sewing space, but at least I got 2 projects done!


This first project is for Charlotte's upcoming baby shower!  Yes, she is almost 6 mo. old, and finally able to travel.  They are all coming next month.  I'm so excited.  It will be a few months before she can go shopping with her mommy, but, I have already given her all the gifts I had made for her original showers. For those of you who don't know, Charlotte was born 3 mo. premature, and spent the first 97 days of her life in the NICU!


This pattern has a pocket on the inside of the seat, and a pouch on the outside.  It all folds into this pouch for easy carrying!  Look at the lower left hand corner of the pattern pictured above.


Sewing on the biased binding on the leg holes.


Sewing down said binding.  With everything packed away and under sheets out in the garage, I could not find a safety pin to thread the elastic through the edges!  I will post a completed photo as soon as I can find a safety pin.  This was made on Day 2 of the floor installation.

Finally on Saturday, I was able to retrieve some safety pins!!  What a chore...threading the elastic through was tough.  My hands and shoulders hurt for hours after.



I had to go into Walmart to 'borrow' some toys!


An inside front pocket for toys, and the back pocket for...


folding the whole thing up into!  Yes, it makes it's own tote.  We all know how much I like totes!

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT....Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy has won my 'Grow Your Blog' personalized pouch giveaway!  Congratulations Amy!  Let me know what color you want.

That's really awesome. I never did get around to making one when the kids were born and my mom passed before she could get one made. Yours is super cute and I'm sure it will get a lot of use.
