WIP WED and a Funk

So I haven't been posting too much lately-sorry! I've just got myself in some sort of funk and haven't been able to motivate myself to sit down and blog in an interesting way-maybe I'm just really ready for summer to be over and get to enjoy the fall weather-or I could just be stressed and have ADHD too-that's another explanation :)

So here's what I've been working on lately....our good friends are having a baby shortly and although I wasn't able to make it to the shower-I thought they would enjoy this sleep sack and changing pad. I love making changing pads, they're super easy, super convenient for parents and a great way to showcase some fun fabrics.
This other project was really doomed from the start. I didn't have my rotary cutter and mat so I cut the fabric the old fashioned way. Well I wasn't really paying attention or thinking I guess because I pieced all of the triangles with the black and white houndstooth on the wrong side...aurghhh I decided just to go with it and was pretty happy until I finished piecing it all together and realized I sewed that yellow triangle upside down-SERIOUSLY?!??! It's just one of those projects...I haven't decided if I'm going to rip out the seams on that one or just leave it as "homemade"....wonder how the back is going to turn out now.
I also worked on the pattern for this apron-it's reversible and a great design for men and women. I'm going to have a class or two for this during the fall. Which is another thing I really need to get going-I NEED to get the class schedule figured out for fall-really I just need to sit down and do it...maybe over coffee. Anyways, anyone have any ideas of classes they want to attend?
Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced.


  1. What a sweet gift you made for baby - what a great choice of fabrics :) and I love the bright colors and pattern of your quilt

  2. Seriously, that quilt is totally cool! Even with the little snafu. Where did the pattern come from? A sleep sac and changing pad are great gift ideas. Thanks for the inspiration...

  3. LOL - I think the yellow upside down triangle adds character! Seriously though, we've ALL done that. The sleepsack and changing pad are super cute! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  4. The pattern is diamond rings, from olive tree textiles, I just started carrying her patterns in the shop-love them and they are super easy to understand.

    I already fixed the yellow and added a back...turned out pretty good and E already stole it and took it home.

  5. Do you have tutorials or patterns anywhere for the sleep sack and changing pad? I have a baby shower to go to in a couple weeks, and those are great gift ideas!
