Bamboo Onesies

I thought I would write a post about what I am working on lately. I ordered some lovely bamboo fabric from The Bamboo Store to make onesies for the baby. The fabric is sooooo soft! This is my first time sewing with knit fabric and so it took me a bit of extra time to work this first one out. I hope to get the hang of it though and chug these out. The bottom still needs snaps, which are kind of a pain to put in so I ordered a snap press machine today since I will be making many clothing items with snaps.

We went to Sydney this last week and finally bought some of the baby things that we will need, which is good to have done. Some of it had to be ordered in, so the sooner the better. I can't believe that I am starting my third trimester tomorrow. It's going so fast and I am enjoying every bit of it--even though it is somewhat more difficult to move around and to sleep at night as well--my arms go numb...

I am starting to get a real itch to quilt again lately as well, but I am trying to do as much baby sewing as I can. While we were in Sydney I dragged my husband with me to visit Material Obsession so I could have a nice browse at a real quilt shop. Very lovely fabrics, though a small shop. Even better husband found the best food of the trip across the street at an Italian deli so he was happy too!
