I was wondering if anyone was going to be sewing anything for their new baby? I'm going to be making all the crib bedding, but I haven't found the fight fabric yet

I don't sew but I do crochet and if I can ever get Elizabeth's blanket finished I would love to make the baby a blanket.

Maybe I can make my goal to have E's done by Aug 15 (my gender ultrasound) so that I can start one for this baby when we know if it will be pink or blue.

I do sew, and haven't thought of making anything..what a cool idea though!
my great grandma (who passed away) crocheted a shawl and now I have it and I'll be using it to wrap baby up along with other blankets..i think it'll be especially nice if it's a girl, because she would be named after her.

I sew a lot, but haven't really done bedding, just receiving blankets and clothes. I make some really great Halloween costumes though.

O.M.G. Those are the cutest costumes ever!!! I am so jealous of your creativity and skill.

I don't do much sewing, but I love to do cross stitch and crochet. I got into a groove making baby afghans, figuring that I'd keep my favorites and either give the others as gifts or sell them. One problem: I love them all.

Brittany, those are great! I love all those cute diapers! I love the Mario costumes, they took forever though (and I was 38 wks preggo). Last year I made Sonic the hedgehog costumes, but can't find the pics.

You know I do Brittany! You better be stopping by and buying something...even though you're probably more than capable of sewing it yourself

I don't have a sewing machine, but I made my "mama cloth" by hand.





I wish I had the talent you ladies have.

Brittany, do you by chance make and sell your diapers? I am IN LOVE with the owl one!!

I sew a little, but my mom sews A LOT! she'll be making all the crib bedding and curtains if I decide I want them. She also makes awesome diaper bags, bibs, burp cloths and nursing covers so I'll be set on all that stuff. And once the baby is a little bigger she makes clothes (she made half my wardrobe growing up). For the infants (this will be her third grandchild) she usually embroiders some onsies as they grow. She's fantastic at all this stuff!

Yep just started sewing the beginning of this year. I am going to be making some gowns and p.js for the baby and some blankets some quilts. Lin's mom is going to teach me how to knit and crochet so I make clothes for the baby. I'm so excited.

I love all the costumes and the diapers. You guys are awesome.
