Confession: I am really not great at sewing. Actually, I am horrible. I can design and style, but when it comes to sewing a straight line – forget it. However, with so many really great inspirations and tutorials out there, I am ready to give it another go. Mr. Darling is ready to try to teach me again, since he is pretty much a pro. Don’t ask me how. In the meantime, I figured I could just browse the hundreds of DIY sewing projects out there and make my list of what I want to create before baby arrives. With the boxes of fabric I have (because I am obsessed with pretty fabric), I figured with 5 Littles in my house come fall, this may be the last time I actually have time to sew.
So, here we go – browse through a few pretties you should sew for baby right now. Get inspired and start sewing!
