Faux Bebe Au Lait

3 Feb

My sister gave me a new sewing machine that is super cool.  It does lots of fancy stiches and embroidery.  For my first project I wanted to start with something simple.  (I haven’t really sewn in years.)  So, I saw these super cute nursing covers online at Bebe au Lait, I thought to myself, ‘I could make that’. So I looked on the internet for some sort of pattern or dimensions to look at and I stumbled upon a super cute blog of someone who had made one; Happy Go Shoppy. She inspired me to create my own faux Bebe au Lait. I must say, I’m pretty impressed with how it turned out. I love the fabric and it was super easy.   I even added some cute heart stitches and made a little pouch to keep it neat in the diaper bag! I think this may become a baby shower staple gift.

    What a great job! It’s really cute. I wish I had one when you were a babe. Why is Jean Bice on your list of names? You know that she was a neighbor of ours and a member of our church. She’s a fun gal.

    Isn’t this project so satisfying? If you’re like me, you’ll find yourself making one for every pregnant girl you meet. I just can’t imagine paying $40 for one when they are so simple!
