DIY Baby + Nesting




It is no secret that this momma has been nesting like a mad woman lately! If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should), then you have seen the fruits of this labor.

I told you guys I've been trying to save money by sewing up some baby stuff myself-well, it's becoming an understatement! I'm seriously becoming addicted to sewing!

Here is what my kitchen looks like right now: (and probably will for the next month or so!)






 That 31 bag that's on the floor? That's all the fabric for JUST BABY STUFF! Insane right? Not gonna lie-I'm having way too much fun here.

Here are the items I've made so far. (from left to right)

2 large burp cloths, 3 smaller burp cloths, tag blankie, and 41 cloth wipes. Not too shabby for a beginner sewer I must say. I am genuinely proud of myself! I still have a long way to go,
but I praise God that my hubby bought me a sewing machine for my birthday three years ago! (Uh yeah, I am just now getting to use it!)







I didn't come up with all of this stuff on my own. Here are the tutorials I used to make what I've got so far:

Tag Blanket from Design, Dining and Diapers.
Burp cloths from Prudent Baby.
 (The cloth wipes I did myself. If you want a step-by-step tutorial let me know and I'll post one!)
