More adorable little onesie dresses! I have one new little niece and one pending little niece due to arrive mid-July! I hope the babies love their new duds!
I love being an Aunt... finally!
Summer is my little sewing assistant today.
A yard or two of minky makes for an excellent baby landing pad.
Now that the onesie dresses are done (yeah, it only took me about a week to make them, 2 minutes here and 5 minutes there...) I think I need to start a new quilt! Your eyes do not deceive you - I've had that pattern & fabric sitting on my cutting table for almost a year. Holy cow. So YAAAY!!!!! Its about time!
There are so many different takes on it, I barely knew how to narrow down the options!
BUT I found the "10 Minute Onesie Dress" by Pretty Prudent and knew it was the one for me to try... mainly because it only takes about 10 minutes and 1/4 yard of fabric per dress! In my world, a ten minute sewing session is about all the time I can spare. Well, x2.
Summer, for some reason, despises being in a photo shoot. I snapped a few with her screaming her head off, while Mckenna is mostly happy. Then Mckenna promptly spits up all over her dress. Oh sweet girls!
Also, the tutorial doesn't mention this, but do go up one size in the onesie, as you'll lose about an inch and a half in length. These pink elephant onesies are Carter's brand size 3mo, although the girls are still wearing newborn.
Summer in all her raging glory, poor thing!
I loved making them so much I whipped one up for our friends little girl, Cora. She's 5 weeks older than my twins. Her mama sews too :-) I think I love the white onesie with the DS Quilts Modern Tile! I own more... fear not.
Adorable, no? These are going to be my new go-to baby shower gift!
Not to be forgotten, my favorite little guy!
So... I've finally made it back into my sewing room! Yay! For now, little projects make me happy... but I'm itching to start a quilt! Soon I hope, once nap times become regular!
Thanks to my mom and little sister's help, I got out of the house with all three kids and made it to a local play park on Tuesday! It was a tad windy but the sun was warm and quite spring-like! We had loads of fun!
Eli got some energy out and a couple friends met us there to play as well!
Baby girls slept in the stroller at first, but then decided to wake up, have a snack, and enjoy the beautiful weather, too.
My mom - super Grammy!
I can hardly believe Eli is 3 already! His birthday is a week before his sisters birthday.
He looks like an 8 year old to me... compared to the babies who weigh 6lbs at the moment. I'm doing my best to soak up all these moments while the twins are still tiny.
Eli kisses them on the head, but doesn't want to hold them yet, which is understandable.
Next week will be my first go at being home by myself without a 2nd (or 3rd) adult here to assist... it will either be a smashing success or mass choas - which is more likely. The state of the house will be the deciding factor, in my mind!
And on the sewing & quilting front:
I haven't touched my sewing machine since before having the babies, which I hope to remedy soon. Even if only in small spurts...
