Newest Sewing Project

Today I spent some time making two nursing cover ups. I found the tutorial here. For one cover up, it took a yard of nice cotton fabric, one package of D rings, 16" of boning and matching thread. Here is what I came up with. I love this fabric! (Kind of wish I had bought more than two yards of it.) I can't believe they sell these things for around 40 dollars! It cost one fourth that to make. It was not very hard, even for a beginner like me.

Here is a close up of the fabric. 

Here are a couple other projects I completed this week.

And this one that I did Chicken Scratch embroidery on the bottom. I used these stitch ideas and created my own design. I embroidered on cotton gingham cloth with embroidery floss, employing the use of an embroidery hoop.

Here is a close up of the bottom of the apron.

Squirt also embroidered an apron. I made the apron and she embroidered the hem and the waistband.

Here is a close up of her waistband.

And a close up of her hem.

Now off to try my hand at baby bibs and burp cloths! (Can you tell many of my friends are having or just had babies?)
