Weekend Projects

Weekends, for me, mean my hubby and the three oldest children are all outside and I am left in the house with my rambunctious one year old twins. They are very busy and have to be in eye sight at all times, which means I have to stay in the living room. The bad part is I don't get many chores done. The good part is my sewing nook is in the living room (barricaded by baby gates, of course). So I usually get a lot of crafting done on the weekends. I have two projects I'm working on this weekend.

My oldest daughter is CRAZY about horses. I bought this fabric to make her a pillow and a bag for her birthday coming up. I have to work on it in little bits because it is supposed to be a surprise.

I have all the pieces cut out to make my sister-in-law a diaper bag. She requested blue and brown. I didn't realize how hard it was to find cute boy stuff out there. Of course I have one son but he usually doesn't want me sewing for him. I mostly make things for my four girls. I have two nephews and two more on the way this year so they really need to get cuter boy stuff out there.

Hopefully I get all of my projects done this weekend but if I don't, this is why. My two little trouble makers have recently figured out how to push things over to my sewing table so that they can climb onto it. Did I mention they are rambunctious?

They sure are cute distractions though.


  1. Love the blue and brown fabric and the cute pictures of the girls! So cute.

  2. Yay, love the fabric! Can't wait to see it finished. Thanks Wendy!
