First Valentine after baby

Due to the lack of babysitter today 2-14-2016, we are not doing anything special. The only thing I managed to do was to make a nice meal for lunch. Between my very demanding teething son and all the things we do on weekend, it is impossible to plan anything. At least I did make an effort to do so. Here I give you garlic Rosemary rack of lamb with garlic Rosemary roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus and mushroom in balsamic glaze.

  
No reservation needed. Oh and here’s a pic of Valentine’s Day card my son (11 months old art work made with the help of ladies at daycare)

From bibs to hairdo what doesn’t mom do?

Real quick, I got baby clippers and gave baby Ian a haircut. First haircut done by me with clipper…. And I think it looks pretty good. I call it the diychick hairdo. 

   
 
Thanks to the 58″ tv , Apple TV and the many kids video available for kids on YouTube. Today Ian is 10 months and 2 days old. Time flies and mommy loves you always and forever.

Bibs!

This mommy has been busy when baby is sleeping! These took me 3 days (about 1-2 hours per night) to make. I’m slow and I’m also using the same fabrics for something else so besides drawing a bib pattern on the fabric I’m also drawing another pattern at the same time. Anyhow, these are done. I may take couple well made ones to a baby shower this coming Saturday as a gift. The rest is for my baby. I should have made more to put on my etsy store but the sales of bib hasn’t been great. If anyone really want it, they can send in a custom request for now as fabric choices are listed on my Facebook page (TheDIYchick). 

  
Now a sneak peek on my next project. Which involves the following fabrics

  Can’t wait to get started already!

TheDIYchick etsy store

Finally I have put my thoughts into actions and started listing items on my etsy store for sale. Since sewing is really a hobbie, not my full time job. I am adding finished items as they are made. I’m also going to enable the custom order option just to see if people would send in request. 

I also recently added some new fabrics in my inventory – flannel, cotton, Minky. These are just so adorable I cannot wait to work on them.  

If you are reading this blog, swing by my etsy store and check things out! I have just listed a new bibdana and burp cloth set on there too. It’s so cute I made two! And patterns already drawn on more fabric for more stuff to come! Cloth pads, bibs, burp cloths and more! Here’s a pic of my newly finished item. Love it !

DIY bandana bib

So I have ordered some cute bandana bib for Ian and he just look so dang cute in it.  I know it’s a bib but as a bandana he looks like a baby pirate to me. Super cute. And these bib looks real simple, they don’t even have a snap or Velcro on the back! I had to tide a knot.


Since I had my sewing machine out, I think to myself, I can make it and I can see ones that feel more solid with a Velcro on. Looked up a tutorial on how to make it, downloaded a pattern. And … It’s done. Using flannel fabric I had on hand. Baby is sleeping at the moment so I had to put it on the teddy bear for display purpose. I tell myself. Not bad… Not bad
