Getting Ready

First of all, I want to thank you all for your sweet emails the last few days.  I have been so overwhelmed with your kindness and love.

I am feeling better about the baby.  I think it helps that I finished this today.




Cute isn't it??  I love owls, and when I saw this fabric, I knew exactly what had to be done with it.  I started to recover the pink carseat a few weeks ago.  However, while I could have come up with a pattern on my own, sometimes I just like to have had someone else tell me what to do.  So, off to Etsy I went and I found this tutorial!

Really easy to follow, probably even easier if you do what she tells you to by taking pictures of the seat as you are taking it apart though :) heehee.

Anyhoo, I am thrilled to be finished (so is Libby, she likes to sit in it now), and just can't wait to have a wee little babe in it.

How THE hell do you figure out how to do things like that? I can't even buckle one of those suckers without major tutorials.

Kim said...

Bwahahaha Loralee!!! Did I mention it took me 3 weeks to make?? yeah, of course I've been working on other things too, but it did challenge me a bit ;)

So cute!! You did a great job!

That is A-dor-a-ble! And it looks so professionally done...GREAT JOB! I have a feeling Evenflo or Graco or Safety1st will be knocking down your door for your carseat design expertise any moment now...

Saw that Loralee is going to be visiting you next month! So happy for both of you to get to spend time together! Enjoy it! ;D

nicole said...

Oh my gosh--I love it! It *almost* makes me want another baby, just to pay you to make one for me! So, so cute. Glad things are looking up for you. Getting those feelings out is the best way to handle them I think.

That is SO CUTE! I absolutely love it!

Heather said...

that is amazing! I love the fabric and would probably use it in my house. So this means when you have the baby you must come to Ohio so your baby and his carseat can sit in my living room to make it look all fancy!!

:O)
