time to sew...



long gone are the days when i was able to spend hours sewing out in my studio while lucy took her afternoon nap. finding time to sew lately hasn't been easy, but sometimes hudson will doze for an hour or so while lucy also happens to be sleeping. imagine that--two babies sleeping at once. oooh, i'd better not jinx myself.

anyhow, with a bit of time here and there i've made some cute little things. hudon's got a new wool cover made from an old, thrifted sweater. it accommodates even the bulkiest of fitted diapers, which is nice. now if i could just find a bunch of long-sleeved shirts without crotch snaps. because really, the onesie-snapped-over-the-soaker-paired-with-babylegs is kind of a strange look. i'm dying to attempt this. we shall see.




we've got a vacation coming up at the end of this week, and if all goes well, upon our return, four little fluff bugs will be stocking our etsy store. woolies, wipes, mom pads, lovies, pants. a random smattering of upcycled things that molly & i are able to bust out during the rare moment when our kids are actually sleeping. there may even be some diapers, too, for those of you that have been inquiring.

wish us luck getting all the kinks worked out!

I'm planning to attempt that 90 minute shirt also. I'm pretty new to sewing so we'll see how well that goes!

In preparation for my babe in cloth, I just cut the snap part off the onesies and hemmed them. I had some that were jersey knit that doesn't fray, so I just cut those off and didn't bother sewing! Super easy!

my wife like/loves to sew also, but i help out when i can and watch the kids for her.. i really like to do it when the older child is sleeping so its really like watching one. you should see if your hubby will go for that. if he wont send me your address and ill help you.

Awe time to sew with a newborn...I know the feeling. I send my 3 year old to preschool 2 days a week and on those days I try to get a little sewing done. Usually with my 2 month old in the moby wrap :) LOVE the new soaker I just started repurposing some of my old pre baby wool for soakers and they are turning out adorable.

Do you use a pattern when you make wool covers or are you just eye balling and sewing as you go?
