Stuff I've Made

I've been asked by many people to post pictures of all of the stuff that I have made for Paisley. So I'm finally complying. Here is the stuff that I've been able to finish before my sewing machine went kaput. I had plans to make a few other things, but have simply run out of time as well, so perhaps it is good that my machine isn't working.

I didn't take a picture of the stuff I have for her to wear home from the hospital because it is already packed and I am too lazy to pull it out.

I totally count this as something I've made. I'm 38 weeks 4 days in this picture. And so what if I spilled something on my shirt. Just ignore my chubby face as well. Gag me.

I've made several receiving blankets. Two of them were two layers and the rest were just one layer.I made this blanket.I made a bunch of burp cloths. I made several hour glass shaped ones and then several rectangular ones. The rectangular ones have terrycloth on the back.
I made a bunch of hairbows and a few headbands. I made some white headbands too but they are elsewhere and I didn't feel like digging them out.Bracelets- Most of which will likely not fit her for a while, but I had fun making them.
I made a few pairs of baby legs.
A covered wipes case and diaper and wipes pouch.Diaper Changing mat. It is lined with clear plastic.
And it folds up to look like this. It is secured with some clear plastic snaps.I painted mod podged these mirror frames.Double layered nursing cover. I like mine a bit larger than most of them are, so I made my own.A twirly skirt, using a fun and easy tutorial that my friend found.And finally, booties. I shrunk down my pattern that I usually use and made some newborn sized booties. I have more of these that are partially made, but my machine needs to be repaired, sigh.I made a pair of these felt booties. One of the hairbows that I made above matches the crocheted flower on these booties.And finally, I crocheted these little mary janes. I love these. They don't look all that cute just sitting there, but I put them on a friend's baby and they are so adorable. It makes me wish I had time to make a few more pairs in several colors.I am currently working on crocheting this blanket. I still have a little ways to go, but I'm enjoying it.

You are ridiculous.
Not because you have way too much stuff, but because you know how to do too much and somehow you get it all done at amazing speed.

By the way, I love how your sister sounds just like you. I read her comment with your voice in my head. Haha.

Too cute Jen! Do you have some sites that you got the patterns/tutorials for? You probably just have the awesome made skills of knowing how to do them already. If you found any sites that are helpful, I'd love to know which ones.

You are amazing as usual :) I can't wait to see pics of your little girl. I hope we can see you guys sometime in the near future. By the way we went bowling with Nate and Jenna to BYU and I thought of you and Jason the whole time. I haven't been bowling since we went with you like 3 years ago. I miss you guys!
