Pinned It Did It Monday {car seat cover and sausage soup}

pinned itSorry for you Google reader readers who had this pop up earlier unfinished.  Owen was having fun on Mommy’s computer. :)  Anywhoo, welcome to Pinned It Did It Monday where I show you some of the pins I’ve actually done from Pinterest.  Hope you can find them useful or #1I got asked a few weeks ago to make a car seat cover for baby Claire.  I said sure and then prayed I could actually pull it off.   Luckily, Claire has the same car seat as Ellie, so I could make sure it fit as I went!

  1. Love the pasta! I made it tonight! So delicious!

  2. Emily,
    I have a feeling you made the car seat cover for Katherine too. It is beautiful and you did a great job with your sewing! It's perfect!

    1. I didn't! :) I bet Lyila did. She's been making tons of car seat covers lately. I'll pass on the compliment to her! :)
