Three Kinds of Covers

I've had these projects done for a while, but kept forgetting to take pictures (duh!). Here are 3 covers I made using fabric I had sitting around in my stash. It's so nice to see them come alive in actual projects instead of sitting on the shelf. I also love how satisfying these kinds of projects are, quick with awesome, useable products.

Number 1: A Car Seat Cover/Canopy
I used the tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew and I'm super happy with how it came out!

Number 2: Extra cover for my nursing pillow
I used Made by Rae's tutorial for creating a cover from an existing cover. My pillow came with one obnoxiously bright pink cover, so I wanted to make sure I had an extra. It went pretty well and the only modification was using an envelope closure instead of a zipper.

Number 3: A Nursing Cover (aka Hooter Hider)
For this one, I used tutorial from Craftaholics Anonymous, which includes boning at the top. I'm not sure how much I'll use it since I also got an awesome nursing cover at my baby shower that doubles as an infinity scarf and is super cute and doesn't scream "I'm nursing over here" but I hardly cut the Washi fabric to make it, so I figure it could get upcycled down the line.

Sorry for the blurry photo!
And because this isn't a random enough post as it is, I'll also share my toes since I got a super adorable pedicure over the weekend. (It's the little things, right?)
