In preparation for our move (and no sewing machine for about a month!), I finished several projects and gifts that were on my to-do list.
My sister is expecting a baby in a few weeks and hopes to use cloth diapers as often as possible. I was able to make about 8 “one-size” diaper covers for her which should give her a good base as she builds up her supply. Sewing diaper covers has a definite learning curve, but I really enjoy making them as practical gifts for new moms.
I also made several small zippered pouches to give as gifts to friends. I used this tutorial as a guide and modified them to be slightly larger. Each bag has a printed inside which matches the stripe fabric.
The last two projects were summer clothes for myself. I realized that after 3 years in the Northwest, I didn’t have many clothes suitable for Southern weather. I will definitely be making more of the tank tops in lightweight summer fabric (as soon as I unpack my sewing machine)!
We are hoping to post some travel updates from the road as we make our way across the country…
