sewing projects

We go for lots of walks here.  Sometime two to three times a day…just a nice way to get outside and the dog likes it too.  There’s only one problem – when it’s chilly, the blanket either fly up or get stuck in the wheels of the stroller.  Either way, they don’t work.  Enter the stroller sack- a flannel blanket similar to the sleep sack, but designed to fit through those stroller straps and it has an elastic top to fit close around the baby’s torso.

And I have a prototype for pants now. I used this site for help, which had lots of great images for almost every step.   They are a bit big still around the middle, but I just found another pattern.  I’ll give it a go soon. This little girl needs pants!  She’s just growing so fast! And most pants are a boring solid color – we like options here…

Here’s what they looked in the beginning – far too wide and long.  Long is fine; it means I can take the hem as she grows.

And the finished product:
