Sewing! (And selling?)
The last few crafting projects I've finished I've forgotten to take photos. You'd be forgiven for thinking that I only talk about sewing and never do it because I often don't have anything to show you!
Well, not today!
Over the weekend I finished off some presents I was making for friends who've just had new babies. (One each, that is.) And I remembered to take photos! When I was pregnant with Tristan, I found online some tutorials for making a cover for the baby capsule. The idea really appealed to me as I was expecting my second winter baby and I remembered well the problems we had trying to keep baby Elliot warm and dry on our travels. At church the last couple of weeks, I noticed our friends doing the old blanket-draped-over-the-capsule trick to keep their wee girl covered, and I thought to myself, "Jess! There's a good opportunity to make something easy and fun and practical! Yay!"
So I did!
I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.
I'm thinking of making these to sell. What do you think? Do you think anyone would be interested in buying them or are they so simple that anyone who wants one would just whip one up themselves?
(Also, it's my birthday! Yay! I do love birthdays.)
