a big sigh (…ahhhhhh) of relief.
Saturday was the baby shower….you know, the one where I was making a hundred gifts…LOL! I have to say, I am not very close with the girl who is having the baby (she is the hubs’ cousins wife). The hubs kept saying to me ‘why are you putting so much effort into her gifts…..you are not even that friendly with her.’ But I wanted to do it…partly for me as I learn and love to craft and sew, but also because I wanted people to see that you can really make beautiful things yourself.
The last of the handmade gifts are my favorite. I had never made a tutu before but just think they are so cute, so I tried it. I was really happy with the way it came out.
I had found the pink onesie but it had a graphic on it. I decided to cover the graphic with this zebra print heart and bow. And I saw the pink leggings for $1 at Marshall’s!! They were perfect to complete the outfit.
I had some extra fabric from a previous project (look familiar Shannon??) and thought I would make a tag blanket. I made it a bit bigger than the usual taggie.
I was nervous when I got to the shower that she wasn’t going to like what I made. But I have to say…..she was super excited and so was everyone else. It made all of my hard work worth it : )
Look at all of these gifts…
Here is Nicole opening some of my presents….
And, yes, we made her a bow hat and a bow bra…..
Me and my husband’s cousins….
So….I won’t show you all of the pics from the bridal shower on Sunday…..but I will tell you that we make hats for baby showers and bridal showers….LOL!
One last photo to share….here is my mom (underneath me….yes, her hair is way too big..LOL) and 2 of my sister’s. My 3rd sister couldn’t make it. But it was nice to spend some time with ‘just the girls.’
Here is to a wishing both girls lots of love and happiness!
