I Can Sew!

I know you're waiting for a post on K.T. and I promise, I'm working on that. But in the meantime, here's a preview of what I've been working on while K.T. has been sleeping during the day.

My sister-in-law, Lauren, gave me this awesome rag quilt at one of my baby showers. I have used that thing so much. Mainly I've used it as a car seat tent to cover K.T. during bad weather. I've gotten a ton of compliments on it and one day decided I should disect it to see how this person made it.

So I made one. It was horrible. So I made another. And it got better. Since then, I've made three more. I just gave one to my friend Sarah, who is expecting her baby boy Connor at the end of April. I also just gave two of them to some yoga friends for their babies.

They are fairly simple to make, I have to admit. And, this poses no challenge on my sewing skills, as I know how to sew a straight line. But anyway, wanted to share!

Here's the second one I made - loved the fabric, but the fraying was too large. I have since made another with this fabric and it turned out so much better.

Here's the one I made for Connor. My third try, and oh so much better. I actually LOVED this one and the fabric as well.
