Diaper shower woes

For expectant mothers, my Mother's of Young Children bible study normally throws a diaper shower.  We had one of these said showers today.  I ordered diapers off Amazon last week, thinking they would have plenty of time to get here before the shower.  I happened to take a look yesterday, the day before the shower, on when they were supposed to arrive.  I had thought they would come before then, so I was getting nervous.  Thank goodness I checked.  The diapers are supposed to arrive today.  At 5:00 pm.  Well after the shower.

What's a girl to do?  I certainly don't want to go out and buy a package of diapers for an enormous amount of money when I spent $30 on a gigantic box that's coming today.  So, I decided to whip up some kind of girly sewing project.   I just so happen to be pattern testing for my friend, Rae, so I had a super cute pattern to try out. 

Isn't it sweet?  its a bubble romper.  Love, love, love it!  It was my first time shirring (the gathered elastic at the top) and it went surprisingly well. 

I had some scraps leftover, so I decided to make a flower headband to go with it.  I think that is my favorite part.  Is that lame?

Oh, and I threw this dress I made in for good measure.  I actually was planning on giving her this with the diapers.
Nice save.  Nice save.

Those are both great, and I love the headband too. It really gives that adorable romper an extra ooomph!

And this is why sewing will always be a useful skill. I am doing slipcovers for the cushions on my sofa and making new valances for the kitchen, and I feel so proud of myself for MAKING what I wanted instead of buying it.
Eh, I should add in the interest of accuracy that my mom is supervising these projects. She has always sewn prolifically but I never really took to it until a few years ago. I still can't do much beyond a straight seam.

Very nice save. I looove the outfits and especially the hair bow...not lame at all!

Great job!
