Fun little things

I ordered a new car seat cover and love its fresh colors! The kids have already tested it out by pretending with a baby doll. Of course, that meant I got a little freaked out momentarily the other morning. I walked by and glanced down at it, jumping a little with the fleeting thought that I had left the "baby" in the car seat!!



More exciting is that all my fabric has arrived! EEEEK! That means I actually need to get busy sewing! And I really do need to get busy!

These next few pictures are of the fabric I am using for the bassinet that will be in our room. I am doing vintage retro transportation.

Aren't these panels great?! It is hard to tell, but the panel squares are pretty big. They are big enough to cut out and work into an alternating pattern with the other fabric.

Here is the rest of my choices. Black minky dot, transportation, road stripes, red with tiny white dots, along with my transportation panels.

I liked this rocket fabric so much that I ordered enough for the moses' basket and for the shopping cart cover I will sew later. This is my shopping cart combo. I am doing the red rocket fabric on one side and the lime green with tiny white dots on the other.

Here is my moses' basket combination. Lime green minky dot, black with space orbits, black with tiny rockets, blue with space rings, and the red rocket fabric.

A little closer look.


I ordered most of the fabric, except the two transportation pieces, from Fabric.com. I have ordered from them before and the fabric is true to what you see. This time, I even found their "designer wall" which meant that I could see all my fabric choices together on one screen before purchasing them. Love it! The best part was I ordered enough to get free shipping AND enough to get a 20% discount. The transportation fabric I had to order from a lady on ebay.

I can't wait to see what leftovers I have for burp cloths and other such cute stuff!

Wow wee! Go girl! I LOVE the fabric on the car seat. It looks shiny. Is it really like that, or is it just the picture? And all the other fabric you got is stupendous. Everything you make will be ALL boy!

Girl, between the quilting and the cleaning, you are seriously nesting!!!

I think the fabric is just adorable. I'm sure it will come out great.
