New 27 weeks picture and more baby stuff

So after many complaints about not really being able to see my belly in the pictures, I took this picture with a dress that emphasizes my belly
 I also finished this nursing cover while I was in Colorado but don't know if I put a picture up yet.
A word of advice...NEVER BUY ONE OF THESE. They are WAAAAAY overpriced for how easy and inexpensive they are to make. For me this cost:
Fabric 1yd $4.19
D-rings 4 for $2.00 (you only need 2)
Boning 2 yds for $2.50 (you only need 14")
total cost of supplies: $8.70


Now I have boning and D-rings to make another one. Do you know how much they charge to make just 1?? like between $25-$45. Isn't that outrageous!!!  
***So, anyone who wants a nursing cover I will make one for you for just the cost of the supplies...that's about $10.00 people.***

ok, so  I finished another project for the baby... 
I got this idea from PurlBaby.com. They are just fabric swatches inside embroidery hoops. For 6 hoops and fabric it cost about $12.00 and now I have an adorable wall decoration that matches the $9 curtains I got and the $20 duvet cover. 


Coming soon...painting projects, another blanket, a pillow, and socks!

Very cute! I have been meaning to write something about those nursing covers myself. It is outrageous what some people charge! Baby slings are the same case. A reversible pouch sling can go for 50-65 dollars and up and I make them for around $20 worth of materials. Crazy!
