Sew it all starts here

How did I get interested in sewing at age 26 with no one around me that sews? Bottom line, I'm cheap. Ok, a better way to phrase it, I'm a bargain shopper. I was always saying "That's not worth the $, I could make that." We will soon find out the answer to my cocky and naive assumption.

My mom was coming to visit for a few days and I asked her to bring her sewing machine along. All I had in the house was a pocket sized thread and needle repair kit from Walmart.

My first endeavors were a diaper clutch and a nursing blanket (Hooter Hider). It went surprisingly well. I used a free (free-are you surprised?) tutorial. This was an easy to follow tutorial and pretty easy to make. I also added a pocket to the outside (see 3rd picture). Sure beats a $35 Hooter Hider.





And the second project that turned out to evolve into a mini entrepreneurial adventure was the diaper clutch/case.

I used yet another free tutorial, but I changed the pattern somewhat. Anywho...this is the result. If you are interested in purchasing one and supporting my new craft, search wubby & crumb-butt on ebay.








I created a label (FYI: I'm a graphic designer) for my diaper pouches so I can sell them on ebay and give them as gifts. They've turned out really well. I named the brand "wubby & crumb-butt". The "wubby" comes from my first son's nickname who is 3 and "crumb-butt" is my youngest son's nickname, he's 1.
