W.I.P. Wednesday

of Birds and Babies

It's baby season around here again.  So I've been creating with a lot of little ones on the mind.  The two most recent projects are bird inspired.  This one has been on the brain for awhile.  I first saw it in November somewhere (I tried to find it again but I think it's been discontinued) and was totally smitten with the idea of a natural kind of bird mobile.  I, then, dutifully forgot about it until recently, while blog hopping, I found a this pattern.  To be honest I would like to adjust the pattern a bit... but they're still stinking cute!

The second project that I've been working on is a diaper bag made of cord and recycled plastic (I'll post more details after it's all sewn together).  This project has been a WIP for months.  I'm really liking how it's turning out, but I'm at the place that I hate... sewing the liner to the outside.  This part has been frustrating on every bag that I've made.  Any tips?

I have been wanting to try out a little bird mobile too. Thanks for the link and the reminder! Your bag looks gorgeous!

Your family is SO adorable!! Thanks for your advice about my little girls iron issues. I'm going to pick up an iron skillet!

We made a small version of that bird mobile & have it hanging above the kids little book nook as their little reading birds. :-) I forgot to post it.

You are the bag making queen. I absolutely love the style of this bag. I sew, but I'm such a beginner that I have no advice to offer. I need advice.
