Baby Dress and Matching Diaper Cover

We all have bad hair days...at least in my world they happen.  Today my hair is fine because it's Spring Break, and my hair's nicely covered by my baseball cap.  But, I'm having a bad sewing day.  I figured it was time for a break.  I turned off my machine for a while.  Maybe it wants a break, too.  I sure hope that's all it is, seeing how I have a deadline to get my latest quilt in the mail for Amy's baby shower in a little over a week.

So...back to Jenn's baby shower that was last week.  I made an Itty Bitty Baby Dress from Made by Rae and a diaper cover from Dana Made It



As I was pulling together fabrics from my stash, nothing seemed to work right for the skirt.  I ended up using an old denim shirt and love how it looks!





 
After piecing the back of the diaper cover, I wished that I would have placed the print about an inch lower.  Oh well, there's always the next one.  Today I've been looking longingly at two fat quarters in my stash, but really must get Amy's baby quilt finished first.

Back to machine quilting.  Wish me luck that it will go better than it has so far today!

Jan, you make the cutest things!! I got to thinkin' about your comment about your new serger still in the box, and if there was one tip that I would share about sergers it would be..... learn how to thread the machine only once! I guess I'll need to write a post to show what I mean but it will make your like so easy when changing threads.
