WIP 12/02/2014


The weeks sure do fly by don't they! It's hard to believe that we are in the middle of February and even harder to believe that I am 35weeks now. Two weeks ago I was ready for the baby and willing myself to go into labour and now I am okay with the little guy staying in there for as long as he likes...lol

As I mentioned yesterday I have been spending time in my sewing room, however, that time has been spent trying to turn one side into a computer room. So far the computer is still in the kitchten and I don't have much to show for sewing...LOL Hopefully that will change in the upcoming week.

Okay now for
February's Goal

A baby car seat canopy

 The tutorial I will be using can be found at
http://www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/car-seat-canopy-tutorial.html

Last week I had finished the canopy making a few little changes to the tutorial.



This week I added on the straps.
And here it is on the car seat
WooHoo another finish for me!!

The plan for this week
Originally I was going to make some burp clothes, however my mother made these pretty awesome ones, so I don't really need more.


 Instead I am making some smaller microfiber wipes and maybe a few peepee teepeps..lol
This is the fabric for the wipes. I am not looking forward to working with the microfiber, but I plan on just making a couple so fingers crossed it's not too frustrating


and for the teepees

 



2014  Sewing Mission Statement
In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list small and just work on one thing at a time. I am going to try and not start anything "new" but instead take one thing off of my no progress list each month.

No progress Items to date (these are projects that have appeared on the to do list for 1 or more months with you guessed it.....no progress
Baby wipes/teepees
Car seat Cover: working on it
