sewing for baby

A long, long time ago I found this great Garnet Hill crib sheet- new in package - at the thrift store. I promptly cut it up to make a boppy cover, then abandoned it just as quickly. Now, 10 months later, I finally finished it! One of my favorite baby gifts to make are these boppy covers {with a new boppy of course}, probably because it is one of my must-have baby items for myself!

 I have to admit I am having a hard time getting excited sewing for this boy. I am just drawn to the prints and colors for my girls, but these trucks are adorable.
 I did a hidden zipper on the back and somehow got it to lay nice and even! 
So I decided to push my luck and make a little zipper pouch- just big enough for a couple diapers, wipes, and a change of clothes for the little dude. Cute enough for a little boy, but 'manly' enough my hubby can carry it through a store to change a diaper. Somehow the zipper turned out alright on this bag too! Any guesses on who influenced the fabric for the lining of this bag?


  1. I didn't like sewing for a boy until after Oscar was born. I was finding more and more girl fabric I loved for Mak, but until Oscar was about 3 months old I had trouble making him anything or even picking out boy clothes! Now I have just as much fun dressing HIM as I do Mak, because it's more like hunting for that perfect piece, versus and million and one cute girl things :-)
    Can't wait to meet your little dude! I love the truck fabric!

  2. Oh, I have never made a Boppy cover - but that is a perfect gift.
