My Bucket List: Sewing Style

The countdown is well underway! Our little guy should be arriving in 50 (yes, 50!) days give or take. A month and a half. Just over 7 weeks. And I have some sewing to do! I thought I'd do a blog post of my to-do list--more for me than for my readers :) but I thought it'd be fun to share.
Photos linked to sources below :) 

1. Chase Pants-Dress pants for my little guy to wear to the Convention in the middle of August. I have the pattern & the fabric.
2. Matching vest
3. Tie to coordinate with....
4. Eden Dress- The skirt portion will be made from the same fabric as DS's suit (khaki twill) and the blouse will match his tie. Shawn picked a really pretty navy blue satin for this.
5. Coming Home Outfit- Kwik Sew 2246 (muslin here) Fabric swatch has been ordered--I need to find a coordinating ribbing and zipper. 
6. Big Brother, Big Sister applique shirts. I'll probably just purchase plain t-shirts & then hopefully applique the words on them. This is "low" priority, but I do hope to get it done.
7. Diaper bag! I bought the pattern from Watermelon Wishes on Etsy. The outer fabric will be a grey twill and the lining will be a combination of Verona Teal & Dots quilting cotton. 
8. Nursing Cover- Easy nursing shawl using tutorial from The Coterie Blog. I'm so glad I found this, I have a couple different traditional nursing "aprons" and I hate them.

Well, that's quite a list!! Add in a couple more tops & maybe even a maxi dress for myself & I'll be a busy girl!! I don't feel "pressure" to get any of it done except for the first 4 for the Convention (and I should be able to finish all 4 in a week or so), and the coming home outfit (which will take a couple days, probably).  The rest would just be icing on the cake!


  1. Enjoy sewing away through out your due date count down! Will u b taking your little one to the Convention?
    Im still home avoiding crowds & listening to meetings over the phone.
    Thanks for sharing the link in #8.... I may want to make one :-).

    1. Our convention will be 3 weeks before my due date, so hopefully this LO will stay put. :) Our daughter was 3 weeks old at her first convention-which was actually much easier than having a toddler because she slept the whole time!!

  2. Very admirable! J. Hope all is well! Perhaps your new bundle of joy is soon to be here or maybe he is
    already :-)!

  3. Congratulations! Hope your sewing plans are going well. That diaper bag is totally gorgeous - I'm totally book making that one!
