Couture This week I tackled a sewing project that truly scared me. A kind friend who is done having kids gave me her new-ish infant car seat. I am so glad I didn't have to buy one, but the old one was a little boyish: And a little boring. And I just couldn't get the idea of recovering it out of my crazy pregnant brain.
