Onward to some fun

at least for me. I love fabric.... LOVE fabric. I sew and I sew and I sew some more. Now that I am sewing for me, I love it again. Fabricland had a members only 50% off sale yesterday, if I could have carried more giant bolts to the table, I would have. Instead I stayed reserved, with my little list. Slings and baby things. With my sisters about to have their babies, I need gifts. And they are both having girls so why not make them a little package that they will hopefully love, filled with girly related baby things.

Here are the fabrics I chose yesterday:
Pink: for Diaper and wipe Cases, catchalls, bottle carriers and hopefully Change pads.
Cream: for the slings: Neither of my sisters got to use a sling with their other kids, and I loved mine so much, I figured I will make them each one, if they don't like it, it's ok cause it was a gift :).

Blue: I picked up a little bit of stripes in some boyish colours, just in case the u/s technician was wrong ;)

Nothing like a little bit of fabric to make me sew happy!

How pretty! I have quite a fabric stash because I keep meaning to make a quilt, but get totally intimidated by sewing. I'm jealous of your ability. You'll have to post pics of the results!

Hey - beautiful stripes!! I think I just ordered a new duvet cover with matching sheets (OMG feel so old) and may very well need some new curtains to for hire?

Chichimama, I will definately post some after photos. I love quilts and will see if I can dig up some photos of ones I have done.

Nancy, I am! I have a couple of orders on the go right now, but there is always room for more :)

my mom is/was a seamstress and I had numerous summer jobs in clothing manufactures where she worked doing a gazillion odds and ends YET I don't own a sewing amchine and can barely sew SO I'm always in awe of people who can accomplish this stuff

have fun with your projects, I may have a few lined up for you as I head towards redoing the kids rooms this summer :)
