Sew Cute Tuesday

Hello again and welcome to another wonderful week of Sew Cute Tuesday! I have been busy working on a number of things over the past week. I ordered the new Lizzy House Asterisk blenders from Llama Fabrics, and they are to die for! Several of the fabrics have metallic asterisks, and they have added so much depth to my #100days100blocks.
I made baby boy a couple pairs of Big Butt Baby Pants by Made by Rae and I cannot get over the cuteness! William's teddy bear was my model since little man still has a few weeks before he shows up.

Here are some of the cute projects that were shared last week.

Robin of Robin Loves Quilting made this darling top for her daughter!

Melanie of Mell-Meyer created these beautiful Prism Bee Blocks for Allison @ Campbell Soup Diary.

Last but not least, Janye of Twiggy & Opal shared her progress on her Epic Sampler BOM.
Now it is time to link up your finishes or works in progress from the previous week! You can link up directly from Instagram as well - be sure to tag #SewCuteTuesday and @youngtexanmama on IG so we can see what you're working on!

Friday Finish - Big Butt Baby Pants

I finished these cute pants a couple months ago, and I have finally gotten them washed and ready for baby. William's teddy bear was a lovely model for me today since little man won't be here for a few more weeks. The pattern I used to make the pant is the Big Butt Baby Pants pattern by Made by Rae.
They earned that name because Rae designed the pattern specifically to fit over a cloth diapered baby booty. I cloth diapered William when he was little, and I knew I would be cloth diapering little man too. They have a panel added into the back seam that accommodates the extra fluff, and it also gives the perfect opportunity to add contrasting fabric.
I used some cute pirate prints that have been hanging out in my stash for the past 2 years! They're by Riley Blake, and I've been toying with the idea of fussy cutting a ship from the leftover scraps to applique on a onesie.

The BBBP (Big Butt Baby Pants) pattern is sized from 0-3 months up to 2T, so I started with the smallest and will make more from there. I used Aurifil 40wt thread to stitch the pants together. I like using a 40wt thread because it is stronger than my usual go to 50wt thread, and I always use cotton thread when sewing with cotton fabric.
Also isn't my new recliner awesome! I am seriously in love with it! We ordered it on Amazon, and I was super skeptical about buying a piece of furniture online without testing it out first. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised at how comfy it is, and it was way less expensive than the ones at Buy Buy Baby!

Sew Cute Tuesday

I woke up this morning thinking I had forgotten something, then I realized it was Tuesday and quickly figured it out! Did anyone else's memory go on vacation while they were pregnant because sometimes I just can remember a thing haha!

I'm still working away on my #100days100blocks as well as my other swaps that I'm a part of right now. I finally finished everything in baby boys room, so now we're just waiting for the little man to arrive! We purchased a new recliner for his room, and I find myself going in there to just hang out and reflect on my excitement/nerves/joy about having another son in just a few weeks!

Here are some of the pretty projects that were shared last week: 

Barb of Mountain Quiltworks shared this lovely quilt, and I can see why it is her favorite. So pretty!

Chris of made by ChrissieD shared this great laptop case that was made by her daughter!

Last by not least is this amazing quilt made by Afton of Quilting Mod!
