Greta has upgraded to a convertible carseat. We went with the Graco “My Ride 65″…whatever that means. To Greta, it means naptime, to me that means HEAVEN. Greta has never been one to fall asleep in the car really. But she has been dozing left and right since we installed this little number. No wonder, that thing is soooo luxe. (Sippy) Cup holders. Super cushy lining. I want one in my size. For the same price. And a chauffeur so I can nap mid-day.
I gave it my best, but the mixture of the sheer yellow (which ended up reminding me too much of an old person’s home) and the bright pattern totally clashed. Ugh. It took me a LONG time to do this one panel. I started on the second one and I thought, “Jules, you better make sure you like it first.” Good thing I did, because I didn’t like it. Lose, for sure. I am cutting my losses at $28 and a good hour and a half’s work. Maybe I’ll use that fabric for something else….hmmm. Now I am thinking I would love some cream and tan striped curtains in the nursery/office. Note: I received an overwhelming response via texts, e-mail, comments, and messages on facebook all with great advice on how to tackle this project and make it work. Truth is, not only did I get not enough fabric, I got the WRONG fabric. I’m over it.
