DIY Projects

Hello friends! Happy Saturday! 

So I spent all day today making things with my Singer One sewing machine and I sure did love it! I made my Mom a dress (it won't be pictured, because I still have to have her try it on so I can hem it.) and I made 12 burp cloths and a *blanket* made of the scraps! (If we are never fortunate to get pregnant, we still have enough nieces and nephews to justify my baby-related projects :D)

Also, I made my kitty a cat nip treat that she loved!

Do you have DIY projects you have done or you want to complete? Do you have a particular website (for me it is pinterest) that is your "go-to" for projects?

  • It isn't baby related, and was super easy, but I made this bracelet today. My Mom sews and quilts. I wasn't blessed with the sewing gene, though I try every once in a while.

    Me: 30  DW (aka C): 29

    Together since 2/15/11 ~ Legally married in NY on 9/29/12

    ***CP mentioned***

    We've been working on baby #1 since July 2013 using Open ID donor sperm.  8 IUI attempts with 5 actual IUIs and one chemical pregnancy.  We have one fresh IVF cycle under our belts as well as a FET.  I have endometriosis and a uterine septum that was corrected via surgery in November 2013. 

    11/14/14 -  Second HSG shows that tubes are still clear and ute is looking good. 

    12/6/14 - Started BCPs in prep for IVF #2

    12/22/14 - Saline u/s and endometrial scratch (All was clear and OUCH!)

    1/2/15 - Began stimming for IVF #2

     ****All Welcome!****

    We are Mommas to four fur babies - 3 dogs and 1 cat.

  • Great projects!  I have mentioned before that I'm not crafty.  Neither is Z, really, but she tries more than me.  I just order stuff from Etsy. ;)

    Z just completed some scrabble tiles for the baby's room.  Our good friend made us the READ tiles that I posted in the PIP Thursday thread.  She taught Z how to make them.  Finished project:

    That is very cool decor! I can only hope we can come up with something so unique if we are lucky enough to get pregnant!

  • This is my work in progress.  I got the pattern while I was in Barcelona.  The lady who sold it to me kept insisting it was just the pattern and not the tapestry itself - and I explained that I was aware and enjoy cross-stitch.  She seemed skeptical but sold it to me nontheless :) I'm proud to say I had the whole conversation in Spanish!

    This pattern is massive and I've been chipping away at the upper-left corner for a while now.
