I only enjoy projects when I'm motivated to do them. I guess that makes sense, right? Usually when I know I need to do something I become motivated to do it (worked well in college, at least. doesn't always work with laundry and cleaning for some reason).

I had decided earlier in my pregnancy that I would prepare things as I felt motivated, kind of trusting my instincts to let me know when it was time to get something ready. I think it's worked pretty well so far. The nursery is mostly ready - just waiting for the rest of the items we'll receive at baby showers (thanks in advance, everyone!). I'm now working on preparing some meals that I'll store in the freezer for after the baby is born and don't want to think about cooking. I have a few unnecessary baby-related projects just waiting for when I'm motivated to work on them.

However, one of the projects I HAVE been motivated to work on recently doesn't have a definite connection to baby preparation. I've been rummaging through my fabric scraps, determined to decrease my store. Here are some of the results. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of them yet...

Here's the inside of one, just so you can see the cute lining fabric.


  1. super cute, Amy! I'm still planning to learn to sew, someday.... =)

  2. So cute Amy!!! They'll come in handy for yourself or to give as baby gifts when you don't have time to run out after Mr. Little Man is here :) Would you mind sharing what pattern you use for your diaper bags? I have a few baby gifts to make myself :)

  3. Amy! If you don't want to save 'em for other babies you know are coming, you should sell your cute bags on I love them! You really are making me wish that I knew how to sew better. I even own a sewing machine that I've never used (sad, I know).

    I love reading your blog. It's nice to keep in touch. =D

  4. Hey Amy-
    Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! It is good to reconnect with you and see all your great sewing projects.
    I started reading A Return to Modesty a couple of years ago, and didn't get very far, but I don't remember why, I'll have to pick it up again...
