Longgies and a photo prop cocoon

Longgies I made yesterday, quick project and so fun. I need to find lanolin and waterproof them for diaper covers.
I made this cocoon and hat for my SIL to use as a photography prop. Erik does not appreciate being a model for me.

I couldn't wait to share

This will be Olivia's good coat this winter. I have had it cut out for awhile but just found the pieces after our move. It's not quite done yet, putting the lining in and button holes/buttons are next on the list. I just think it's too cute, made from a vintage McCall pattern.

New Diapers

The next size up from new born, Erik is growing fast and will be in these soon! This is the one I have done, a fitted diaper with a cute tractor print flannel on the outside. This diaper has a layer of bamboo french terry on the side that touches the bottom, inside I put a layer of Zorb sandwiched between two layers of diaper flannel. This should be one heavy duty diaper, can't wait to try it out when I get a cover made, or maybe I will try out the wool soakers I made :).

My latest creations

I haven't blogged in a long time, I feel like I have done so much more than I have pictures to post, and I have I just don't have the pictures. I have been a diaper making machine getting new born diapers done just before our new baby arrived, then burp cloths also as I realized that we did not have any that were not pink LOL. I don't have pictures of the new diapers (well very used now) and burb cloths but here is what I have done in the last few weeks.

This is a baby quilt (or lap quilt) made from squares of denim and DCU's with a flannel backing that has John Deer tractor camo pattern.
The next two are some dish towel sets I made up by crochet, I have taken a liking to crochet and have found I can do it while nursing the baby.

And finaly here is our beautiful baby boy, Erik, born June 15 after a fairly uneventful pregnancy. He is 9 weeks old in this picuter.
