Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails...

That's what little boys are made of. Our family will be welcoming a new little boy this summer (our 3rd. 3 boys and 1 girl), so I have been busy sewing. It is still early, but I figure I better do it now while I still feel like it, since my motivation seems to go down the more this belly of mine grows.

My boppy pillow was in serious need of a new cover. I traced it to make a pattern. One side is polka-dots and the other is stripes. Most covers have a zipper closure, but since I hate sewing zippers I opted for ties instead. I really like how it turned out.

I've never used one of these car seat canopies. But I thought they seemed like a good idea, so I went ahead and made a reversible one.

Flannel blankets. Just 2 pieces of flannel sewn together.
I saw this idea online and loved it. So I got out the wonder-under and made this handsome little onesie.
Another flannel receiving blanket.
Burp clothes. I used flannel on one side and terry cloth on the other.
My babies tend to be very spitty and drooly, so I made bibs galore. These are cotton on one side and terry cloth on the other.

Now all I have to do is wait for this little guy to make his appearance!


  1. So cute! Now I want to so more bibs for my little guy!

  2. Holy cow you have been busy!!!!!!!! So much cute stuff you are so talented!!! Congrats on having another little boy!!! I love your car seat cover, that is the cutest fabric!!!!!!

  3. So cute. It makes me (your mother) happy you sew!!!!
