bjorn cover

first off, let me say how much i appreciate all of your comments form my last post. they were very comforting and sweet. also, sorry about all the complaining! sean came home early last night (5:30) and spent a bunch of time with the girls, we had a good dinner together (thank you sue!), some family worship time, and a good long talk. we’re back on track for induction on thursday!

so here’s my latest project i tried out: a baby bjorn cover! i’ve seen these online before and thought they couldn’t be too hard. and we got a new bjorn (i’ve always borrowed them in the past) and i decided to go for a funky green color instead of the standard black. well, the olive green is pretty sweet, but the inside and trim is this hideous bright, nearly florescent green. so i decided this would be the perfect opportunity to make a cover.

after a few adjustments, i got it to fit just right. i started out making it way too fitted.

here’s the back/inside. i wanted to make it reversible, but the slit for the opening i made too big, without any overlap (oops), and now it won’t look very good reversed. that’s ok because i prefer it the way it is, and i have 2 more fabrics to try out another cover!

    that is super cute!! love it!

    glad things are looking up. induction will be just fine! i know every one says it makes things more intense. i was induced, too, with zeb. it was needed. and it was intense. but nehemiah was all natural (no time for drugs even), and it was WAY more intense. so who knows, right?

    hey, can i pick up the twin comforter on Monday? we’ll be in town.
