baby crafting

I'm finally making some progress in sewing some things for the baby now that maternity leave is in full swing! I debated about the crib bumper pads for awhile, with the SIDS risk and all.. but decided to go ahead and make them, and will just take them out once the baby can scoot around the crib, and put them back in after he's a year old. The pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby, except I decided to make the bumper only about 8" tall instead of a foot tall. The nursing cover was pretty quick and easy - the pattern is from here. I still have a couple more things I'd like to make, but I'll be okay if I don't get around to them since I'm pretty darn close to my due date now!

Just a note on putting them back after the baby is a year old...they use them as 'steps' the climb out of the crib ....ask me how I know ;) They are super cute though!
