It's a Girl!

Even before we got pregnant, we decided we would wait for the baby was born to find out the gender. We wanted that "it's a boy/girl" moment in the delivery room and thought it was worth waiting the extra 6 months. That is, until we got pregnant and I realized I would be significantly limited in my knitting and sewing for the little one. I'm not a boy=blue / girl=pink type, but I would certainly make different selections for the nursery and wardrobes. So, I've been counting down to June 19th for the past oh, two or three months. Our "big" ultrasound.

It's a girl!

The wheels immediately started turning and my brain spilled over with ideas for must-knit baby sweaters and booties and of course, the bedding set. After spending at least 4 or 5 hours pouring over fabric online (seriously), I finally just went to my local quilt shop (LQS? Does that work?) to see some fabrics in person. I decided every baby deserves Amy Butler and stocked up on some prints from her Midwest Modern line. She really outdoes her self with every new collection, doesn't she?

Here's the haul...



I'm excited about my choices, modern and not super girly. Plus, the fabrics match her sage green nursery. Bonus.



All the fabric is washed and pressed and a pattern has been chosen. I'm hoping to make some good progress this weekend.

Box Bag Tutorial

A couple of you inquired whether I made this pouch based on a tutorial or pattern and if not, if I could provide one. Ask and you shall receive!

I've learned so much from tutorials out on the internets, I'm happy I can give back for once. Bear with me, though. This is my first tutorial and creating one is much tougher than I imagined. I give anyone who's created a tutorial tons of credit!

I feel obligated to preface this by admitting I'm a trial and error sewer. I make things up as I go along and test things during the sewing process to see if I'm achieving my desired results. Also, I taught myself to sew just playing around on a sewing machine, so I don't always use text book methods. Just wanted come clean before you all jump into this and so you have a little understanding if I did something in a backass way. The pattern works, which is all that matters to me!

Because of the versatility of this pattern, my instructions can be used more as guidelines. You can e…

MONKEY SOCKS

Finished these on Saturday and they haven't left my feet since (well, I did take them off in the shower). These are by far my best fitting, most comfy pair of handkit socks ever. For reals, y'all. Just a satisfying blend of stretchy and warm. In the words of Rach3l Ray, "Yum-O!"

Nursing Pad Tutorial

Thanks for all the lovely messages about Alice! We're getting into a groove around here and I've finally been able to do a little crafting. My sewing machine has finally seen some use and thanks to some sage advice from Elizabeth over at A Mingled Yarn (Thanks, Elizabeth!), I'm finally able to knit while nursing.

Speaking of nursing, after tearing through a couple of boxes of nursing pads I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own more environmentally-friendly version. I couldn't find an available pattern on the internet, so I thought I would share mine with you. There are probably better ways to construct them, but this worked for me.


Don't they look like ravioli?

What you'll need to make 12 breast pads (6 sets):
1/2 yard cotton flannel* (I used a natural color because I didn't want a wild print peeking through my shirt. You can go crazy with creativity, though)
1/4 yard cotton batting*
scissors
thread

*A note on fabric: I used cotton flannel and …
