Baby Gifts

As mentioned, there are quite a few babies eagerly expected. This is the start of a long line of gifts I'm putting together. The goodies were given to Amy this past weekend at a most excellent bloggy get together aka: surprise baby shower. The get together was again hosted at the beautiful home of Jenny. Gawd, I want her home in a bad way.

Don't know why I insisted on reinventing the wheel. I designed my own pattern for these, knowing full well that they existed somewhere. The pattern I designed for the bib was a copy of one of my favorites from Kenzie was a drooler. The shoes are a near-copy of some Robees shoes that we have a few zillion pairs of. When I got stumped by how to work the elastic, I hunted down Stardust shoes' tutorial and mimicked her approach. And then noticed, that there wasn't much different about my shoes at all. Hmnnn. Could have saved some time and curse words. :)

I made my own patchwork fabric using scraps borrowing Molly Chicken's idea , which I've used a good many times. Fabric like this just looks so cute and kid-like to me.

And, because I'm the tutu lady.. I did one of those too. I kept envisioning the ensemble on a naked pudgy baby during a photo shoot.
Practical? No.
Cute? Of course.

Such fun meeting you. I LOVED your gifts. I want Jenny's house, too. I'm so "borrowing" some of her decorating.

Cheers! LA

What great photos you took of these! I love everything you made. The colors are great!

I'll have to see if I can wrangle that photo session out of this baby. I'm hoping this one will let me dress her up more than Elise does. Elise is not the girly girl. :)

I've been meaning to post a comment for awhile but my computer time has been limited...husband accidently chainsaw'ed the main internet cable -- oops.

Anyway, your work is so so cute. I love it.
