My baby is 1!! and a slip cover

My baby girl turned 1 last week. I really really can't believe it's been a year. I just wanted to share a pic I took of her.  Yes, I'm a proud mama and I'm bragging about my sweet cheeks 1 year old.

I made a slip cover for this chair that is a hand me down from big sister. This was a gift for my oldest daughter on her 1st Bday. 
Regarding the slip cover:  I'm really pleased and totally surprised that the slip cover turned out as well as it did.  No step by step pics to post because I honestly thought it was going to be a mess. So the moral of the story...even someone who doesn't know what they are doing can make a slip cover.
I made a rough pattern out of tissue paper, then cut my fabric from the tissue paper pattern. Then I pinned two pieces at a time together using the chair as my guide. Then I sewed it together. I added one more piece at a time, using the chair as my guide until it was complete.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!

Your daughter is beautiful! I can't believe she is one already, it doesn't seem five minutes ago you announced on your blog that you were pregnant!

Love the chair cover!

Isn't she just gorgeous. Bragging about babies is ALWAYS allowed - it's not really bragging, it's just being a proud mum. xx
