Diaper Bag :-)

I just finished the Beatrix Potter diaper bag for the new baby. I think it turned out really cute, although the directions I had were flawed and hard to understand. It was easy compared to the bag I made when I was pregnant with Nathanael, though. So that was good. :-)
Nathanael loves all these Peter Rabbit projects I've been working on- I think he thinks they are for him. He can help by carrying the bag for me when the baby arrives, so he will probably be happy with that. :-) He might want to play with the sling, too, when it's not in use.
The baby quilt is next on my agenda, also Beatrix Potter, of course. Haha I'm sure it will be a couple months at least before I'll be putting the finished quilt pictures on this blog. The quilt doesn't look the easiest, and I plan to hand quilt it. So who knows how long that will take! It will be adorable, though, I'm sure. I love all these cute prints. :-)

Peter Rabbit Baby Sling :-)

I recently sewed a baby sling for our new baby boy out of some cute Beatrix Potter fabric I ordered online. It was really fast and easy. Hopefully it will be better to use than some baby carriers I have tried. I got tired of all the all the fastenings, etc. to get the baby in and out. This sling is all one piece. I think it would have been better with a slightly stretchy fabric, but I really wanted a Peter Rabbit print. :-)
Nathanael had fun modeling the sling using his baby doll. :-) Of course, it is much shorter on me. Haha
