I have been busy sewing for Maggie Kate.
I have always loved to sew and especially for little girls :)
I love these little diaper covers with all the ruffles. (I posted the pattern here) I need a little model for them but she won't be here until September. I used some of the pink and white gingham I bought to use as a table topper for the Gender Reveal Party. I still have plenty of fabric left for a dress and other things. I knew when I purchased the fabric that I could later use it for items of clothing. I have the baby blue gingham also.
I've been busy making burp clothes too. I had the cloth diapers leftover from some I purchased to make burp clothes for a friend's grandbaby last year. I did buy a small amount of pink flannel to trim them with to "dress" them up (I had the purple already). I added the monograms and the appliqued flower to these. I have more I am finishing with different fabrics and appliques. Bibs too!
I love sewing for babies :)
For Mother's Day my sweet husband gave me Monogram Wizard Plus, a software program to use for monograms. I have plenty of designs and software on my Bernina but I wanted this quick and easy program. I have been experimenting with it the last few days. So many fonts to choose from and designs also. Fun!
Jennifer has chosen fabrics for the nursery ... they are a soft pink :) I am waiting on another fabric I've ordered to use in the bumper pad. As soon as it comes I will begin the sewing. I have so much to sew in the next few weeks for the nursery. The bed is set up in the nursery and it is gorgeous!
I also found my pleater for smocking. It pleats the fabric perfectly for smocking. I have been "pinning" on Pinterest to refresh my memory on how to smock again. The last time I smocked was in the 1990's when I made Christmas ornaments. A long time ago :)
Now I am off to finish up some more things and then pot some plants for hanging baskets. I am so far behind this year with everything in my yard.
Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes! Those days are difficult since Amber went to Heaven. Next year I will have Maggie Kate to celebrate with ;)
And I haven't had time to visit blogs so I have catch up with all of you!
Thanks for visiting and God Bless!
