These are things I made last year before there was a baby expected. I love Amy Butler's fabrics, and the things in this book are all so perfect I just want to make them all. I'll settle for 2 of them.
This is the first one that appealed to me - just a hooded blanket with a tie.
The only thing I changed was leaving off the buttonholes for the tie. I wasn't sure how useful it would be, and I didn't want to put 2 holes in the middle of it if they weren't used. I just made a small carrier on the back and threaded the tie through it. Then if it's not used, there won't be holes in the blanket.
Emily is crazy about this cat and has mentioned it twice, so it looks like that will be an upcoming project. It should be fun to do.
I just found this patterern on line and did it exactly like the instructions. Super easy. It's a changing pad that folds into a neat little package for a diaper bag or to keep in a car.
Open, there are pockets on each side for diapers and wipes and other things. Next time I might do a water-repellant fabric for the middle part. And maybe in a more feminine pattern.
I can't find the pattern now when I did a search, but the web site I got it from (I think) was You Sew Girl.
The package is ready to ship now, and I'm going to finish up a few things that need buttons or ribbon before I start something else. Right....
