Fantastic Friday: Babies, Time Capsules, Car seats & Slings

I am halfway through this pregnancy! Whoohoo! There will be another baby in the Quirky household come July. My mind is on babies. Here are some great blog posts I have found with excellent DIY instructions to make a coffee-can scrapbook of sorts, super easy car seat strap covers and a ring sling.

I’ve never made a baby book. I’ve started a few but never saw them to completion. Maybe something simpler, like a “time capsule” would work for me! Crafty Chic Mommy created an awesome way of “capturing” her daughters special firsts with a paint can and some phenomenal embellishing!

Obsessively stitching has a great and super easy tutorial on how to use simple potholders to create seat belt covers for those abrasive car seat straps.  I could make these in a naptime and still have me-time left over!  If you want more super easy and cheap tricks and tips – she has plenty!  Lots of them are baby oriented.

Last but not least, I love my slings!  And lost one of my favorite ring slings!  Thankfully, I was able to find a tutorial to make my own!  Hope it helps some of you babywear!


We are giving away a diaper bag this week! Check out Ellye-K Designs! It is adorable!
