So as I was saying earlier... things never go as planned. Sometimes they go mostly as planned but not exactly as planned. Tomorrow night was supposed to be girls night out and it was to celebrate some birthdays. I was going to spend tonight making birthday gifts. Unfortunately girls night was cancelled.

Anyways... I got the DVD and was going to just give her that but then I thought about how hard it was for me to find a proper swaddling sheet. You couldn't purchase them in any stores near me and the ones online were VERY nice but no affordable. Not for me anyways. So I decided to make a swaddling sheet to go with the DVD. And then while I was shopping for the fabric I thought that it would be nice to make a matching set... SOOO I decided to make burp clothes to go with it. And THEN I thought wouldn't it be wonderful to make a nice pair of tiny baby booties to go with it!!!!
As usual nothing goes as planned. Because the swaddling blanket is fairly large it took me longer to hem than I thought it would. I went with 42" by 42". You probably think that is huge for a baby blanket but you will have to trust me. A couple weeks after your child is born the only thing those napkin sized receiving blankets will be good for is well a napkin or maybe a changing pad... But you probably already have a changing pad...

Ok this is not actually the day. This is the day after a failed induction. Yep you heard me right. Failed induction. Until this day I did not even know that there was such a thing. Yikes. That sucked. This is my REALLY dissapointed face. It is no fun sleeping all not in the hospital hearing other babies being born and knowing that you are going to have to go home the next morning still pregnant.

Back to the birthday present. You will have to ignore a few things:
1. Maggie picked the princess fabric and the polka dots and I was left trying to figure out how to pull it together. Honestly that didn't work out too well. I don't think my 3 yr old will care that it clashes though.
2. It is already dirty. I don't have a seperate room or even a seperate area to sew. Soooo my projects don't really have a safe place and so it has been played with when mommy wasn't paying attention. Spackle on the ribbon(story for another day) and a mistery blue stain on the princess fabric.
3.Well you will have to forgive a lot of other little things. My first of things is often pretty bad but then the second and third time are usually pretty great. So I am very glad that I have a great family that loves me and my projects as flawed as they often are.
