My First WIP Wednesday

 
Today is the first time that I will be linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.  I will admit I'm more than a little intimidated.  There are some amazing projects to look at and I hope mine will not stand out (in a bad way, of course).  I made no progress on my Weekender Bag last night but hope that will change tonight.

 
About a week ago I finally put the velcro on Squeak's Carseat Canopy.  I had finished the sewing a while back but couldn't find the adhesive velcro that I was looking for.  I picked some up at JoAnn's and here is the finished product.
 
 
I didn't have a tutorial for this so if I decided to make another one I would definitely make the back shorter.  As it is now, it drags the ground (whoops) but all in all it will serve its function this winter by keeping the freezing Oklahoma wind, drizzle, and snow off of my baby.  Speaking of Squeak, we have another round of shots this afternoon so wish us luck!

  4. Love the carseat canopy! Oh, and you probably already know this, but don't forget to move the chest clip up to near around his armpits it helps keep the straps positioned in the right place so that the car seat can do its job. If you do already, awesome - feel free to write me off like I did all the nosy ladies who got on my case in JoAnn's when my daughter wasn't wearing socks (gasp!) and didn't feel like explaining that she had taken them off so many times already it wasn't worth losing them in the store. :0)

    He's a very lucky little boy!
