Wooli Bottom

I saw these gorgeous books on iiiinspired awhile ago, and I've wanted to do some bookbinding ever since.

However, I feel a little bad lately using my free time on anything except baby things, so I made a little wool diaper cover instead! It turned out pretty cute.

I used a wool sweater from DI that I shrunk and felted in the washer. It used to be gray, but I accidently put it in with a blue and red blanket, and it turned purple! I love the purple though. James looks good in purple, so I'm sure Babyboy will too. It's super duper soft, and the felting makes it waterproof. I even tested it. I can't wait to pull it over his little bottom!

I sewed it by hand, so it took me a couple hours, but still a pretty quick little project.

Secret: I'm a little terrified of sewing machines. They move too fast and stress me out. Maybe someday I'll be brave and really show the machine who's boss, but for now hand sewing is OK.

I feel EXACTLY the same way about sewing machines.

That is super cute! I need to start making more cute baby stuff. I don't do sewing on the machine...never had the patience...for some reason by hand is easier for me too. Anyway, I love it!
