Two little hankie bonnets for a gift and my son (to be born later this summer).
These are made from small, laced-edged handkerchieves. There are several free patterns online. I cannot find the exact pattern I used online. The link was bad. (I made one for Spenser 18 months ago and still had the pattern.) There are also some poems to go along with the bonnets. They are for the "going home" outfit or for blessing/christening days. Then, with a few snips of threads, they become a "hankie" again and the bride can use it as her "something old" on her wedding day.
Here's a working link if you're interested.

Another bag using babybug's tutorial. Exterior is a thrifted sheet, lining is "new" blue with white polka dot fabric. This bag was donated to church for a youth "auction" (the youth have been earning "points" this school year and will be holding an auction using their points).

Same pattern as the last one (New Look pattern 6953, by Simplicity, skirt view D, size 10, non-maternity pattern), less the ruffle at lower hem. Instead of having a "panel" in the front, I sewed a stretchy knit band at the top. My plan is to remove the knit band at the top post-baby to convert into a non-maternity skirt.
