Nursing cover and onesies

I've been sewing away lately and I thought I'd show off some of the stuff I've made.

Nursing cover for my sister-in-law Julie:


I learned how to make fabric flowers like this one and now I'm trying to find random places to put them (like my diaper bag) because I love them so much. The nursing cover (a.k.a. Hooter Hider or Udder Cover) was pleasantly simple to make. It was one of the first projects I've attempted where I haven't had to spend half of my time unpicking mistakes.

Tie onesies for Jackson and my cute nephew Adam:

I've seen something similar in the mall. Started with a plain onesie and bonded fabric cut out in the shape of a tie. Finished with a tight zig-zag around the border. Made these in a couple of colors and I LOVE them-- see model :)


Both Adam and Jackson wore the green version to church today and I must say they looked smashing ;)

Just a regular old Martha Stewart! Those are awesome! I love the cute flower on the hooter hider, it just adds that extra flare. Way to go!

Very cute and I'm so impressed with your new found sewing skills! One thing I found when I made onesies is that I started putting interfacing on the backside of the onesie and it prevents that little bit of pull at that corners that is sometimes hard to avoid. Just a thought though! It helped me.

I just realized that I didn't comment on your last few posts! Bad Me!! I'm so impressed and in awe that you ran a half marathon, seriously so amazing! Don't know how you did it or how you found time to train.

Your cabin post made me think about our trip up there and how fun that was. Beth told me about the roomy reunion I missed! :( So sad, wish I could have been there. Miss ya!

Jenny Ricks said...

Courtney, funny you mention the interfacing because I've started using it too-- makes a BIG difference! We missed you at our little reunion :( Hopefully it won't be too long before we see you again!

That's awesome Jenny! How do you make the tie onesies? So cute! I would love to make a few myself.

Heidi said...

Dude! All of the above turned out so flipping cute! I want to learn how to make those flowers. Belley is gonna need some a.s.a.p.!!! You and me need to get together for some sewing projects.

I am so impressed! Everything turned out so cute! I have the machine but have yet to really make anything with it. Hopefully I'll develop some skills one of these days :) I need you to come teach me!
