Oliver + S Sunday Brunch Skirt

I have to get a picture of J. wearing this skirt because it is so cute on! A little more grown up than the ruffly stuff I have made for her in the past but she still seemed to find it very comfortable. I can see why everyone raves about Oliver + S patterns. Now I just have to find time to make the matching jacket . . .

Infinity Scarf

I was looking for a quick and easy teacher gift and this infinity scrarf is definately it, taking under 45 minutes to make.  It's made of two pieces of voile - forest hills in sea and water - cut into strips 12 inches by the width of the fabric and then stitched on all sides.  It's wonderfully soft and drapey, and can be worn in one loop or doubled up.

Diaper and Wipes Case

When I still toted diapers and wipes with me, I carried them in one of those zippered plastic bags that crib sheets come in.  I found it useful because I could just grab it and put it in the stroller or a backpack depending on where we were going and if I needed to change a diaper, I could just grab that and everything was in it.  When I saw the pattern from You Can Make This for a bag with a window so you can access the wipes without taking them out, I knew I wanted to make it for my brother and his wife who just had their first baby.  It ended up being a little more "loud" than I pictured in my head but hopefully they get some use out of it.

Doll stroller

This doll stroller has many, many miles on it and the seat finally gave out.  I used some canvas fabric from Jessica Jones' Amusement Park collection and some store-bought bias tape to make a new one.  I was suprised how quick and easy it was just using the old seat as a pattern.
