Any day now my brother-in-law, Joshua, and his wife, Marcee, will have a baby boy. These gifts are for them! (But mostly for Marcee.)
After the confusing ordeal of making Sara’s nursing cover, I decided to scrap the online tutorials and follow my instincts. The results? Score one for sewing instincts. I did learn a valuable lesson: boning is much easier to deal with when removed from the casing.
Dipes & Wipes Bag
Instead of lugging around a diaper bag, I’d rather take my little “dipes & wipes” bag to the bathroom during church, carry it in my purse whilst we’re grocery shopping, or throw it in the car on the way to the park. (Ideally, Abram would just use the potty. He’s so stubborn.) Of course, the little dipes and wipes bag also fits nicely in the actual diaper bag, which is sometimes a necessary evil. Here’s a good tutorial on a little zippered bag.
Burp Cloths or Changing Pads
Flannel on one side, cloth diaper on the other–these suckers are mucho absorbent. If Abram’s cousin is as much of a “squirt” as he was, Josh & Marcee will be glad they have these.
I hope this little collection of handmade’s is well-used!
