I'm actually sewing! Maybe...


This morning I've been cutting out fabric for some projects. I'm especially excited about making this nursing shawl. My little sister who is also pregnant with her third daughter requested one. The tutorial is great and I can't wait to see how it turns out! I'm going to make myself one too. 
I have a ton of pregnant friends right now so I'm also going to make some passy straps, burp cloths, and attempt some cloth wipes. I am planning on cloth diapering our baby so I figured cloth wipes would be easier than disposables. I guess I will find out. If you have any favorite cloth diapers, please share!
 Hopefully I can get my 20 year old Serger to cooperate today so I can actually finish some of these projects. I don't think I've touched my sewing machine in at least 3 months. I'm still dealing with a little bit of morning sickness at 19 weeks.
 Here are the tutorials I will be using:

And just for fun here's my 19 week photo. It was also Mother's Day. I'm so grateful these little girls made me a Mother. We had a great day thanks to my hubby who took over cooking and cleaning!


  1. You look so pretty! I can't wait to see how the nursing cover turns out!

  2. LOVE LOVE your dress! Where did you get it? I'm going to need some cute maternity dresses this summer!!

  3. I bought it in the clearance maternity section at Target for a $8! It's was a steal!

  4. Aw - love your cute bump and your cute girls! Just found your blog!


  5. OH. MY. GOODNESS.... you look soooooo gorgeous!!! I adore that dress, the hair, those girls, and that BUMP!!!!!! Hope you are going to the RS activity tomorrow night!!! I'm really excited. :)
