A few more burp cloths and an outfit

Here's another outfit with a matching bib (pattern here) that I made today. I really need to just wait until it's daylight outside before taking these pictures, but I never remember until it's dark, but I hate the horrible lighting. Anyone one know of a good, and cheap, artificial light setup for photos?

And here's 6 more of the burp cloths that I shared yesterday. I really, really can't believe how fast and easy these are to sew. I can see myself making loads of these when I want to sew, but don't know what to sew.

Burp cloths, receiving blankets and onsies

A friend of mine posted a link to this free New Conceptions burp cloth pattern, and I decided to try it out yesterday.....

LOL I *LOVE* simple and quick projects, and this is both simple and quick, so I made up 10 of them and still have 5 more cut out. I used flannel as the top layer and organic bamboo fleece as the bottom layer. There's also 2 receiving blankets I made, one is done just by serging the edges and one done with mitered corners. Serging is definitely quicker, but I like te look of the mitered corners better.

Here's a few onsies I made yesterday as well. The 3 on the left are made using Kwik Sew 2433, and the 2 on the right are from Ottobre 5-06. the Kwik Sew pattern seems to run wide, but maybe I just don't remember how chubby babies can be. ;)

A sweet newborn outfit...

I made this sweet newborn outfit for a very dear online friend of I mine who's expecting a little girl. I'm super pleased with how it turned out, and I hope she loves it.

Gown and hat are kwik-sew patterns, and dipe is a very baby fitted.

I really want to sew, but....

my sewing room is a disaster!! I have several projects that I need to get done, including my sisters b-day present. (her b-day was last Tuesday :S ) I just can't do anything in the room when it's that bad, and unfortunately I know I can't, because it gets that bad frequently.

Anyone want to help clean this mess up??? LOL

Okay, I guess I'll have to tackle the mess on my own. Hopefully I'll get it done tonight....
