Lookie what I bought!
So I decided to go ahead and buy the Robots Collection fabric bundle I found at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics Etsy Shop! Her price was actually the lowest that I could find online for that fabric. It will be arriving in the mail next week. I am thinking I will make a romper or two for Daniel and some bibs like the ones I made for Gianna and Billy. I also bought the Red Letter Collection fabric bundle from her as well. Isn't it fabulous!? I am so in to ducks and birds right now especially retro looking ones.
With the Red Letter Collection fabric I am thinking I am going to make some kind of tote bag. I found this very simple idea at Made by Molly's blog and I love it! I have the pattern for a tote bag almost like this one in the book I bought a little while ago called Romantic Home Sewing by Christina Strutt.
But I have so many sewing ideas I want to try that my mind is spinning so I need to just pick one and do it! So right now I am working on a simple skirt that if all goes well should take me no more than 30 minutes to make. I plan on having it finished this evening and I will make sure to take pictures and post them! It has a simple elastic waist band that can easily be taken in as my waist shrinks after little Daniel arrives. Well, let's hope it shrinks! :)
Lots of sewing projects and lots of posts to come, especially posts of little Daniel when he finally gets here! Only three more weeks to my due date, June 16th, but my mom thinks he will come on the 12th. And he can't come between the 6th and the 9th because my best friend Hannah will be out of town then and I want her to be able to come to the hospital. The only one who knows for sure is the Lord and the day He has picked fits into His perfect plan for Daniel's life. So I must be patient and he will be here when he gets here!
