My sister's baby shower was last night (yay!) so I'm finally able to share photos of what I made her. And, even better, because frankly a boppy cover and hooter hider are not that exciting, I have photos of the gorgeous quilt my mom made for her. This is going to be one stylish mama/baby pair!
p.s. Scroll to the bottom for a photo of the cutest pregnant girl ever!
My sister doesn't know if she's having a girl or a boy, so she wanted something fairly gender neutral, but not cutesy. I chose this great Lark print from Amy Butler for the boppy cover, and another Amy Butler print, Midwest Modern, for the hooter hider. (And if you're not familiar with the term "hooter hider," yes, it is exactly what it sounds like, for breastfeeding.)
So I tried another self-created shortcut to fix it. With the cover on the boppy form, I simply pinned how I wanted the boppy to fit on the inside of the "C" shape. There was no way I was redoing that #$#$*(#$)%# zipper! I removed the cover, turned it inside out, and stitched a basting stitch, roughly following those pins. Happily, this shortcut worked and I was able to resew the line with a regular stitch, trim the excess, and have a fairly snug boppy. Whew. The other good news--the shower was Thursday night. I was actually doing this Tuesday night, so I had an entire extra day/night of wiggle room!
And now, on to the quilt that my mom made. My sister requested a (gender neutral) non-baby quilt. I helped mom choose the fabrics--24 different ones, I think--and she created this quilt. Gorgeous, isn't it? I want one!
She even fancies up the back with a pieced section.
