This adorable car fabric (Kokka Japan Little Cars) has sat on my sewing counter, among the piles, for months now. I thought I would get it just in case when I knew we were expecting. I’ve never done anything like that before, but I figured I would just wait and see…
With yesterday’s news, I sneaked downstairs with Annabelle to see what we could do in an hour for a little boy.
You’ve seen this favorite bucket around–my living room, our hair tote, and now something that has boy written all over it. It is the nesting burlap bucket–a PDF you can buy online and reuse over and over again.
Halfway through when I realized that the cars would end up sideways, I recut the piece, adding some length to it. Now the cars are driving right-side up, thankfully.
The bucket is empty, of course. It just sits on the counter right now reminding me from time to time that we really are having a boy. Someday the bucket will hold some of our baby favorites: Pat the Bunny and Sophie the giraffe a rattle or two, and some burp cloths.
I can definitely say this is the first thing I’ve ever made with wheels on it. Welcome to a new world, Mama…
