Months ago my sister-in-law posted about freezer paper stencils. I've been wanting to try it and I finally did. This was a fun and easy project. There is a great tutorial here.

While eating my cereal this morning I saw this cute card idea here. I had all the materials so I decided to make cards that Jake could color and send out to family. He was very excited to color.

In my quest to learn to sew better and add more variety to my projects I attempted to make a zipper pouch. Zippers have always intimidated me. I found this tutorial here very helpful. I am happy to report I did it! Now I have a place to put wipes, diapers and a changing pad for our little guy coming.
Dan built me a sewing station in our family room so I don't have to use the kitchen table anymore. Yay!

One baby item that we did not get when Jake was born was a swing or better know as the "neglecto" swing by my older brother Mike. We have since been given a nice swing however, the cover was pretty gross and lets be honest, ugly. So, I decided to try my hand at making a new cover. I was inspired by two tutorials. One on making a highchair cover here and one on sewing with biased tape here.
