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!


  1. Thanks for linking! And congrats on your upcoming arrival! :o)

  2. I’m so glad you found my tutorial and that you found it helpful. And I’m super glad I followed you over here b/c I was about to break down and buy carseat straps for my boys. Now I will definitely be on the hunt for a cute set of potholders (Dollar Store here I come!). Thanks!
