New Products From Forever Sew Cute

Hey everyone,
I have been really excited about the new products I have been asked to create for people. So I thought I would share them with you so could know the story behind some of these projects.

I was asked to make a diaper bag to match a wipes case that I had for sale. I had never made a bag, let alone a Diaper Bag with pockets. I looked at patterns and didn't really like they way the bags turned out so I created my own pattern and this is what it turned into.

I love lots of compartments in baby bags. There are two elastic straps for bottles or sippy cups (left side) , three elastic pocket compartments (top) Cell Phone pocket (Right) And a wipes and diaper pocket(bottom)

Here is a dinosaur baby bag I was asked to make. This one is a little shorter and has a strap across the top to close it.

I was asked to make a wrap around nursing cover. I had never made one before and had only seen one picture of a Walmart Shawl. I created a pattern and added a pocket and binding.

 You cannot tell me that is Cow Print Nursing Shawl, isn't the coolest idea ever. A customer requested this print and said, "Might as well embrace it."

I was asked if I could make this Romper. I really loved the look of this, and was really excited for the challenge.

This is how it turned it.

I was then asked if I could make a Pink and zebra print romper for a little girls first birthday. She also requested to have a #1 on the front with her name on it. And this is how it turned out.

I was also asked to make a matching for when she eats her Cake

My newest project was to make car seat covers. When I was pregnant, I recovered my baby car seat in a unisex color because we didn't find out what gender we were having. When she was born I immediately wanted to recover the car seat, well she is 9mths almost, so I'm a little behind.  Better late than never right?

You can now request a cover from me in any print you would like. Zebra anyone?!?!?

I have a new little nephew coming into the world and wanted to make something for him before his family moves away. So I decided a little vest would be perfect.

Visit my Facebook page to see some of the colors you can have the vest made out of.

Make a NEW Skirt from Jeans and an old skirt

I have been going through my clothes and came across a favorite skirt that was too small around the waist, and pants that fit really strange. You know what I'm talking about, those pants that when you bend over and your back side shows. SO I decided this could be fixed by combining the two together.

Get your pants and cut off the legs, as if you were turning them into really short shorts. Then cut up the inseam and even out your cut, now it should look like a mini skirt. Then get your skirt and cut from the top down until its top and the jean bottom is roughly the same width. Then, with your jeans right side out, slide your inside out skirt over the top of the jeans. Make sure both RIGHT sides of the fabric are against each other, then sew. You will be sewing together the bottom of the jeans to the top of the skirt.  Then ta-da, you are finished. If you would like you can sew a top seam along the jeans if you would like, I did and it seemed to take away some of the flair. But here you go, you now have a new skirt.
