I’ve been crazy sewing the last couple of weeks!  I seem to get my second wind at night when the house is silent (oh, how nice!) and there isn’t a little girl demanding food, water, to watch TV, to wash her hands or brush her teeth (guess I should be happy about those), or whatever her little brain can think up to distract me from whatever I might be trying to do.  Here are some of my latest creations:

A burp cloth
Flannel sewn onto a prefold 6-ply diaper with ribbon trim.  Don’t you looove my crooked stitching?  I really need to be more patient.

A Dino Blanket
Made with strips of my lovely dinosaur material sewn together with some flannel strips thrown in for fun.  Still a work in progress, I plan to have three layers with the backing being minky dot fabric.

A reminder of why it’s impossible to sew with a 2-year-old “helping”.

Changing Pad & Diaper/Wipes Case
Followed this great tutorial and I love what I came out with!  Emma is using this for her dolly right now. 

Isn’t the fabric darling?  I like the way the batik fat quarter I picked up at Joann’s on sale looks with this project, too!

Aaand I couldn’t leave out Emma so here are a couple things I made for her…

A flannel pillowcase for her toddler pillow

And our first t-shirt dress!  I tentatively followed this tutorial for the basics.  I need to get some long-sleeved tops for her somewhere….

So what kind of craftiness have you been up to lately?

I’m linking this to the What I’m Making Monday linky.
