9 weeks left, 9 crafty projects

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I’m 31 weeks pregnant.  That means, in theory, there are 9 weeks left before Babycakes #2 makes an appearance.  I’m hoping to complete a craft project a week before then… In no particular order, here they are:

1. Make a diaper bag for myself and a matching one for my sis as well. Perhaps a modification of the weekender tote at sew spoiled? A couple other diaper bag tutorials I’ve seen:

 Diaper bag tutorial at Sew Much Ado

This diaper bag at Moda Bake Shop (I like all the pockets!)

This hip mama diaper bag at a mingled yarn is supercute and kind of like a purse… I like that.

2. Make a baby changing pad/station and a cute little wipes case (tutorial at sew spoiled).  Maybe also make a little diaper pouch to go with this?

3. Sew our pergola cover.

4. Put together a kickin’ party for Cocktails and Mocktails v2.0.

5. Work on Burke’s big boy room.  Hopefully we’ll be able to make his toddler bed (we’re going to use this tutorial at design*sponge) and get some of his kelly green/navy/aqua decor in there before August.

6. Make Keadryn, Sayla and their cousin Addie coordinated-but-not-exactly-the-same dresses for their family photo shoot in July using the Alexander Henry Mocca fabric above. I’m thinking that means more shirring!

7. Throw a vintage-y owl baby shower for Kedron.

8. Refinish and repurpose some of our furniture… There’s a media center to paint, a table top to stain, and coffee table to re-work.  We’ll see what I can get to.

9. Sew Kiji’s nursery decor- her bumper, crib skirt, and a little quilt.  And maybe a pillow or some art work for kicks.  That vintage alphabet by Martha Stewart above is part of her decorating scheme.
