Diaper Covers

One of the last projects on my list before baby comes.  Now my list is actually winding down, I keep wanting to add to it.  It's been nice to have goals to keep me busy to help the time pass this last month or so.  But I guess I'll see if I feel up to getting more things done, or just do the minimum.  If I can, time sure goes faster if I'm working on things.
Anyway,
This obvioulsy wasn't that important, but a fun, quick project.
I used the 0-3 mo newborn size for the white covers, but decided they were too small to last the summer and made the color covers 3-6 month.

So now we have some undies to go under the baby dresses.

I made on little pair that was fun out of white eyelet scraps.

It was kind of hard to see on an empty diaper cover, so I grabbed the hippo again to model.

To add the ruffles, I cut strips 1.5" wide and serged both sides.  I just zig-zagged each strip across the back piece before sewing anything else.  I have 4 ruffles.
Around the legs, I just folded the ruffles under as part of the leg casing.

So I'm down to the one week mark.  I'm 39 weeks and I'll most likely be induced Monday March 21, so final countdown is here.

Can I just say that I am ah-mazed by all that you have done right before giving birth.

I was lucky to get showered and dressed, let alone sew a whole wardrobe.

GREAT JOB.

I do hope you get to rest a little.

I would be sewing like crazy too, if I could have in those last weeks. Get some rest, too! :)

So cute. My last post was on a pair of bloomers/diaper cover I made to go with one of my grand's Easter dress.

Hi! I'm new to your blog and I am so inspired by it. I'm having a little boy and am due tomorrow (!) somehow I still think I have time for a few more projects too... :) This post is timed perfectly, since I want something to cover his little diaper for newborn photos. I think I can make something boy-worthy. Thanks again!

Good luck. The last week or two drag so horribly and made me swear I'd be pregnant forever. I hope they go quickly for you, and you get all sorts of work done before baby arrives.
