After making a reversible flannel blanket, I had a touch of the print flannel fabric left over. I decided to try and find a use for it. I coupled it with a solid, light pink flannel and cut both into four rectangles 15 inches by 20 inches. I used one solid and one print to make one pad. I rounded the corners and serged the edge and voila... 2 changing pads, burping pads or lap pads. Too easy!
I made the blanket out of the same print flannel shown above and backed it with a light blue flannel, trimmed out in yellow blanket trim. I love the colors in the print flannel. So cute!
Last week at the baby shower a lady was wearing a nursing sling. Have you seen those? Man, they are so cool. I would say her little boy was about 18 - 20 months and she carried him in it while nursing and was able to keep her privacy. I was amazed that just a piece of fabric could do so much!
I found a website that sells a version called the Maya Wrap, and it looks a lot like the one she was wearing. some of them even have a pocket for a diaper and wipes or keys, how convenient is that? MayaWrap.com sells ready to wear wraps, but they also have a tutorial page so you can make your own, you know I have to try making one. Look for it to be coming soon to my blog! You can find the tutorial here.
I also have to announce that I won a giveaway this week on the Elephant Is Love blog! It is a handmade sachet, I can't wait to get it. I will be sure and post it on the blog so you all can see! I am so excited. I hardly ever win anything. Thanks Punky!
|Isn't that a darling sachet? And yes, I was lucky # 13!|
Last but not least, I want to share my beautiful Knock Out Rose Bush. It is so full of roses that it is about to burst! Considering my husband ran over it while sliding out of the driveway in the snow in Jan of 2011, it is doing great! I am so proud of it, it was a gift from my step daughters on Mother's Day, 2010. It has grown like crazy!
Until next time,
