Fun With My Sewing Machine

"Where have you been???" you may be asking. Yes, I realize it has been 4 weeks (wow, seriously?) since my last post, so I am posting a few pictures of what has been occupying my time. That is besides feeding, chasing after, dressing, undressing, bathing, wiping, etc., etc.... you get the picture.

My favorite endeavor so far: the necktie shirt. I am still in process of making Jude's (it is hard to find a plain onesie that is more t-shirt, less undershirt -- if you know a good place to get one, let me know!).

Secondly, and yes, Daniel has sufficiently made fun of me for this one... babylegs a.k.a. leg warmers. I love the practicality of these, even if they were originally designed for girls. Just slap those puppies on and you've got instant leg coverage with easy diaper changes. Also a fairly easy project since they are simply reconstructed tube socks. Soon I will make it to Target for more funky styles to cover those chunky thighs.

Next, I couldn't pass up making Jude some cute pants out of this black and white rocker-looking material. Of course, had to come up with a coordinating shirt.

And lastly... this sweet bird mobile. My current project. I have one bird done, as you can see in the picture below, with more birds cut out of the fabric shown. Check out the pictures below this one for the finished product from I love it!

I've got some more posts on the horizon... check back soon!
