Stroller Revamp

Calder's car stroller (as in, it stays in the trunk) was showing a little wear. It isn't bad but the cover was fading in just a few places. I bought the stroller on Craigslist and absolutely love it. It's small but still has the full reclining position. So, I decided to sew a new cover for it. I LOVE this fabric and was so excited to try it. It is fully removable and I didn't change the original, so I can revert back if needed.
This is the stroller without the sun shade. It is convenient that it is removable. I plan to use it like this at the airport and indoors.

Now here is the problem. The original fabric was blue, tan and white with red accents. I looked everywhere to find a cute fabric to match that wasn't girly. I gave up and chose what I really love. Well, now I have a brown, red and white stroller with a blue, tan and red sun shade. Does it look tacky? I am afraid to try a cover for the sun shade. But, if everyone thinks it needs to match, I will give it a shot. Also, if you hate the new cover and think I should just use the original stroller as is, please say so.

August Card Club

These are the cards I made for card club this month. The theme was celebrations and since I was plum out of baby cards I thought that's what I would do. Everything is basically from Close To My Heart. I think it would be a good card for someone close to you because it is really big. It's not a routine baby shower card where you basically just sign your name. It's also a nice size to include a check so you don't have to fold it. I love the pink envelopes. I got those at a great fabric store in San Diego called Beverly's. If you're ever in La Jolla you should go there. They have an awesome designer fabric section. And a decent scrapbooking section.

Lucy Dress

I'm going to a baby shower tomorrow for baby Lucy. I made this dress last week and totally love it. It has ruffle sleeves, button details and ruching around the bottom. I found a onesie with yellow ribbing around the neck that matches perfectly. Of course it comes complete with ruffle bottom tights. Ruching around the bottom.

The back.
