Baby shower gifts!

I always prefer to give handmade gifts rather than store bought ones, when I can, especially for baby showers. It seems babies are in the water lately because I have had 3 baby showers in the last few weeks.

This is the outfit I made for Elle's baby girl, coming next Thursday.
I embroidered the onsie on my machine and made the skirt by hand out of minky and some fabric I happened to have that matched the embroidery. I also made her an organic bamboo velour blanket, it didn't photograph well because its just cream.

This blanket I made for my friend Erin, who is due next month (photos of her cute baby belly and shower to follow eventually). It is lime green minky and this amazing vintage fabric I got from my Grandma's stash. I love it! And its SO Erin.

These are 2 burp clothes I made for my friend Elizabeth, who is due in a month as well with a little boy named Frank. What goes better with "Frank" in my opinion than cowboys?! I love how they turned out.

So cute! I'm so happy to hear the Elle is getting so close. I was just thinking about her the other day and wondering how things are going. You are so creative! Love it!
