I got to sew this weekend for Beth's Austin baby shower (yay babies). I had a ton of fun with this stuff! First I made a nursing cover (or hooter-hider, as the pattern designer called it), which was super easy to make. I really love this fabric, too. Girly enough for the mom, but blue and yellow so that no one will think there's a baby girl under there. I added some terrycloth pockets to the two bottom corners for easy cleanup (a tip from my friend Wren, thanks!).

Then I made an Aggie bib, a paci clip, and some little kimono booties. All of these patterns were really easy to follow and I had fun making them. No frustrating or confusing steps involved! Yay! Refer to the links for the free online patterns/tutorials.

And lastly, I couldn't post this picture of the gift Beth gave me last week for the Dallas shower until after the Austin shower, so here it is. Beth made me a hot/cold therapy pack and some yummy grapefruit sugar body scrub. I was going to make myself a therapy pack, so yay for getting one as a gift, and the scrub smells soooooo yummy that it won't last long. Thanks Beth!

I've got almost three weeks until the next baby shower, so hopefully I can squeeze in some sewing for me. First up will be Beth's Diana Hobo that I promised to help pattern test long ago. I've gotten bored with the bags that I carry to my office, so I can't wait to get this one done so that I can carry a fun bag.
  • Yay I love everything that you made me! I can’t wait to get to use them! And I’m so glad that you like the body scrub and hot/cold pack! :)

  • Those all look great! Wow the hooter hider is awesome, much better than the first one I made… =) Those things are so useful. I want to know how to make the paci clip. Bradens is no longer functional and since he is attached to the paci we need a few so I can change them out for cleaning.

  • Wren, I added the link to the post, and it is also in my free sewing patterns link on the left toolbar. It’s really easy, and you can probably use the clip on his old one and not have to buy more clips!
