Here is some of my sewing.


I have been keeping busy with my sewing. Today I made this sling for the baby. Unfortunately, I bought the wrong size rings and this fabric is too thick to fit through nicely. I can get it through but it is very stiff and hard to adjust. The pattern I have used is Elizabeth Lee Nursing classics 202. It is rated easy but I found it very fiddly with the wadding in the side and the pillow of wadding in the top. I also have a thinner cotton muslin fabric (below) that I think will fit into these rings okay. I am going to make this one into a sling tomorrow and hopefully put the rings on it and then buy some bigger ones for the above sling.


Besides these I have prepared my pattern for a skirt and top for the babies baptism. Here is the skirt and top pattern with the fabric I will use for those.


I am hoping to pin and cut these tomorrow and have them done before the baby is born.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
