I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in the sewing section or what. I just figured this was as good a place as any!
I am expecting my little girl in February, 2009. I'm so excited to welcome her, and I've been having fun with crafting while pregnant (because there really isn't much else that a pregnant girl can do). It really started when my husband and I were looking at bedding. In case you are not aware, baby bedding is very expensive and most of it only comes in pastel blues, pinks, yellows (especially for girls). I hated almost everything I saw, and I couldn't imagine paying $200 or more for something so hideous (IMHO). So, I decided to pick out some fabric and sew my own. I'm thrilled with how it turned out!!!!!
Without further ado:
Please excuse all of my knitting and crafting mess all over the floor around the crib and in the closet. I am still working on finding a new home (this used to be my office and craft room...)

This is the inside of the bumper. The bird fabric is by Joel Dewberry, and I am in love with his designs now. I wish I could afford tons of his fabric!
This is the diaper Organizer. I love the tiny pocket, although I have no idea what useful thing could possibly fit in there.
This is the pocket Organizer. It looks fine, although there are tons of little mistakes that I wish weren't there. I used a vogue pattern which was nearly impossible to understand, and this was the piece that suffered the most. Hopefully you can't really tell.
My husband and I also painted this old dresser to become August Isabella's changing table. I'm super excited about how it turned out (it used to be an ugly dark color).
The right side of the changing table has a pretty little swallow that I taped off.
And a Peace Dove on the Left...
So, we are still working on little things all through the room, but I think that we have a very good start (especially since we still have 3 months before she gets here). Thanks so much for looking!
