Someone once told me that as soon as you get pregnant, you’ll instantly meet a slew of other people who are also pregnant. Seems implausible, but strangely, it’s true! I’m pregnant now and can easily name off 10 friends who are also expecting. What better time to think about sewing fun baby gifts?
I hear that having an easy, convenient, changing pad for on-the-go use is key and I love the one that designer Marni Weaver of Haberdashery Fun has created. It’s cute, accessible and wouldn’t take long to complete. I’ve got at list of people who could use one — how about you??
