About Tuesday Tell All

I know that I didn't post my linking party this week.  Due to recent events I won't be able to do it for a while.  I hope to bring it back soon.  We have had some emotional things going on in our family and that fact that I am pregnant makes it even worst.  Also we are in the middle of a renovation and have a baby coming soon.  So I a extremely busy with helping and keeping my little boy out of the mess.

But thank you for your support and I hope that you will stop over and see the project that I have done.  I have a few that I just need to blog about.  I can't wait to show you the renovation when it is done.  It will be great!

Bad Day = Cute Baby Stuff

This last week I was having a really rough day, so after my little boy was in bed I went to work. I have been really stressed with the thought of all the projects that I have wanted to get done before this baby comes.  So I did the two things that I really wanted to get done.

The first was I love the car seat tent.  Even though she will be born in the summer I hate when I go places and the baby isn't protected by anything.  Also everyone wants to touch the babies face.  Grrrrr....  I had someone sneeze on my son when he was just a week old.  I fell apart.  I mean I was a wreck.  With this baby I really wanted to have one!

While I was looking for patterns I came across  this one.  I loved it! I did my handles a little different.  I love how it turned out.

  My little boy  was the one that picked out the fabric.  He kept saying, "Oh Mama, I love this.  It is so cute."  I love him.  He is super cute!!!  This is what it looks like on the other side.

Then when my son was born I had someone give me one of those burp cloths that were made from a cloth diapers.  I used it all the time.  Then my mom had another one made.  They are awesome.  I bought the cloth diapers and never made them.  I have had them for 2 years.  I was sick of them staring at me waiting to be made.  I pulled out my scrap fabric, the cloth diapers and I found this tutorial. 

It was SO easy.  I thought that it would be harder. I did 9 in an hour and half.  I also did two different stitches.  She did a zigzag and I tried it.  I am not a fan.  Then I tried a straight stitch and liked it much better.  Here is all of them that I got done.  I am so excited to use them!
The girl ones.

I have no idea why the last one didn't flip.  Alwell!  

Here are the boy ones that I did for gifts.
I am so excited!  I love that they are done. Plus, the fact that I had all of the stuff on hand.  I didn't have to run out and buy all of the stuff to do these projects.  Now on to the next project that is glaring at me. 

What is something you need to get done?

Spring Scrapbooking Overnighter

After I had my son I felt as though I had lost myself.  I was kind a discouraged as we all get.  I was talking with a friend from church and she said, "Do you scrapbook?"  I said I tried to get into it but not much.  She said, "You should come to a scrapbooking over nighter that I go through."  I was really excited I have gone ever since!

In the beginning of April was the Spring Overnighter!  I had some much fun!!  Here are some pictures of our group. 


Here is my working space.

I get some much done when I go.  I will post pictures of the pages I got done.

A Jean Redo!

Many of you know that I am pregnant and getting more pregnant by the day.  A few months ago I was at Old Navy and found a great deal on some jeans.  Well I was HUGE with my son and I thought that I might get as big as I did with him.  So I bought some pants that were too big and thought I would grow into them.  I am happy to report I still don't fit in them.  But they are some of the only pants that I have.  I needed to do something!  

So I went to work.  I thought that I would show you want I did.  Now a huge disclaimer.  I am a beginner sewer and it isn't that great!  You will get the point and I am sure that most of you will do better then I did.Let get started! 

I started by cutting a piece of elastic.  Then pin it in place
I started sewing and then you need to pull it super tight!  I might as tight as you can or it won't work very well.  I learned that on the other pair that I did.  

Do that to both sides.  Make sure that you have a needle that will sew through denim or it will break.  Plus don't sew your belt loop.  It will look like this.
I told you I wasn't that great.  It was my first time!  Here is what it looks like on the back.

Another thing I thought of after I got done doing this is you could make a small cut in the denim and hide the elastic.  Either way it works great!
