<p>I made the first two an outfit for hospital pictures/coming home. I tried to make a shirt for #3 but it turned out waaay too big.</p>

<p>It's about the same size as a 12m shirt. I used the newborn pattern pieces and the recommended seam allowance. It's McCall's 8574</p>

<p>I also have a baby blanket started but I don't think he'd appreciate the dusty rose and maroon color scheme I had going before that last ultrasound.</p>

<p>I knitted him a hat.  I also made some side snap recycled wool covers, I started a blanket and am about 90% done and I just don't want to finish it.  I have also made him some recycled longies.... those are SO CUTE!!!!</p>

I did an oil painting of her name to hang in the nursery. Took me forever, but I finally finished it. I was going to " re-learn" how to knit, but I'm glad I didn't buy any supplies. It would have just been one more thing to finish on my list before baby.

<p>I've made a knit blanket and hat.  The blanket was one of my first knit pieces.  I just taught myself and I must admit it ain't to pretty, but the hat came out nice.  Regardless of the look of the blanket,considering the time it took me to make it our kid is coming home wrapped in it!</p>

<p>I have about 75% of a blanket crocheted, I might finish the blanket piece-wise, but doubt I'll get the little ducks stitched onto it. I also began thread crotcheting some booties, they are halfway done but cannot for the life of me figure out how to follow the next set of stitches in the pattern, don't know if I'll get around to asking about it or not to get them done <img alt="eyesroll.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif"></p>

<p>I am going to crochet up a little hat for him to wear.</p>

<p>Last week I made a sleep sack out of some bamboo fleece that was supposed to be for some more training pants for dd... but she seems to be doing all right with 7 pairs, and I really want to avoid flame retardant chemicals for ds's sleepwear.  I'll try to get pictures of the sleep sack sometime... there are definitely some sewing mistakes, but at least it will keep him warm. <span><img alt="love.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/love.gif"></span></p>

<p><span>My next project is re-covering the glider cushions... I started yesterday and there are already plenty of mistakes in that</span> one, too!  I'm not very experienced as a seamstress, but it's still satisfying making something myself, mistakes and all.</p>

<p>eek! I have so many half finished projects-- basically blankets that are cut, but I can't get on the floor to pin them.</p>

I'm not the craftiest person, but I can do basic sewing. I made a "taggie" mini-lovey, about 12". And I made myself a nursing cover. I plan on making another one to keep in the diaper bag. I never used one before, but there have been a few times I would've liked them. I am weird about nursing in front of FIL (worked with him for years prior to meeting DH, & even tho MIL nursed all 3 of hers for a long time, something seems odd about me doing it in front of him. He doesn't care, it's just...odd for me. We're more like friends than anything. Not weird in a bad way, I'm not creeped out, I can just tell he's just shy about it) and they live 10 minutes away, so we see them often. Other than that, I'm not too crafty. More just too cheap to purchase those two crazy-expensive items when I can spend an hour or two of my time and a few $s and make my own!

<p>For this baby I made a pair of wool longies.  For my first baby (and will be used on this baby), I made several covers for my nursing pillow, seamed up a really long piece of jersey knit to use as a moby-style wrap, made some sleep sacks, and made a little cloth bag to keep all my pump parts together and in one place, rather than bouncing around inside my PISA.</p>
