Sew Swap with Little Willow Tree

8 Oct

Part of the reason I wanted to do the Sew Swap was to expand my sewing ability.  I have really been wanting to put some sewn items up on BraggAbout Creations, so this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.  My swap buddy was a mom who liked to do a lot of outdoor activities, which I translated to: I have limited time and like to get out of the house often.  I thought about what I would need, and I decided to make a little bag that could keep credit cards, ID, and a little cash separated from the mass of chaos that diaper bags often turn into.  This is what I came up with:

I’m actually going to make myself one because I’m already feeling ridiculous and throwing my much to large purse into the bag that will become the diaper bag.  That makes the trips to the grocery store VERY awkward.  I also think these will make great stocking stuffers, so I’ve posted it on Etsy.

I got a really great bag from my Swap Buddy.  It is absolutely perfect.  It will probably be our emergency diaper kit that stays in the car for those moments when we forget things or when we underestimate the mess that babies can create.  I loved having an experienced mama that can help this new mama out.

Thank you Little Willow Tree for hosting such a fantastic event!  I’m dying for the next one.  Not only did I get to meet 2 great people, I also got to expand my skills and finally dust off the sewing machine.  She has now been used very frequently and I can’t wait to post all of the other exciting things that I have been working on.  Make sure to Like us on our new facebook page for sneak peaks and coupon codes.

One more little update: Baby T is here!  She arrived at about 3 am yesterday after just 15 minutes of pushing.  We had a wonderful all natural birth at a birthing center, and are now at home resting (and knitting).  Birthing story to come.
