My First REAL Sewing Project...

So a few weeks ago I stumbled upon a high chair re-purposing tutorial (here) and thought to myself... well that would save me a TON of money. Instead of tossing out the hand me down high chair we were given by a good friend of ours before Olivia was born I could just make a  new cover for it!


Before:
(This high chair was in MUCH better shape before Olivia got her hands on it.. like the duct tape?!)


After:
(All in all everything took me about 4-5 hours to complete from deconstructing the old cover to make a template from to adding the finishing touches)


I have a few projects I am planning on tackling next... a few baby gifts for some expecting friends, adding some length to our living room curtains, a skirt for Olivia, coordinating quilts and pillows for the girls, replacing the cover/seat for the bouncer we were given from another friend of ours and finally... finishing that darn pillow case dress that I started making for Olivia well before her birthday. 

What projects have you been up to?!
