Diaper Bags and Changing Pads, and new curtains

I had a few special orders this week, and two of them were from my mother-in-law who needed diaper bags and changing pads for baby showers.  I have never made a changing pad before, but I figured I could give it a try.  I used Nylon for the changing side, and fabric for the outside.  I put cotton batting on the inside for a bit of cushion.  It turned out pretty cute, and fits into the diaper bag nicely. 
I was also inspired to change my curtains in my living/dining room.  I couldn't justify spending a ton of cash on store bought curtains or even fabric to make my own, so I decided to improvise.  I like the fabric of my old curtains, I just didn't like the style anymore.  It occurred to me that I could repurpose the old curtains.  After a few cuts, and some simple sewing, I came up with this:
OLD curtains (this is the only picture I had of them as I forgot to take a pic before I took them down..disregard our friends in the picture. :) )
New Curtains:
And here is one of the diaper bags/ changing pads (again, forgot to take a picture of the other one before I mailed it off...)

Sold my Winnie the Pooh Quilt!!

I actually sold my Winnie the Pooh quilt today.. I guess I was a bit surprised, and I am a little sad to see it go.  It is going to Victoria British Columbia.... one of my Favorite places... so I am sure it will be going to a good Canadian home!
