So, you may have heard me talk about my "favorite cousins" before. Well, one of the "favorite cousins", Haley, is having a baby. We are all so excited that we can hardly stand it. I've been debating about what to make her. One of my favorite things for my babies were baby gowns. They made diaper changes so much easier than fiddling with all of those snaps. I thought if I could find a plain one, I could embellish it and make a matching bib and burp rag, but I couldn't find a gown that didn't have something already on it. I went to Carter's and found the exact same duck gown my 14 year old had when she was a baby, but nothing plain. So, I decided to make one. I picked some of my favorite Jennifer Paganelli fabric for the gown and the matching blanket. Wanna see?
I also made her a bib and burprag set that matched the fabric they used in the nursery, but I forgot to take a picture of that. I also made a little bitty rolled fabric flower out of the pink fabric. I figured she could attach it to a headband or something.
I decided I would use it to dress up the packages just a little.
Fabric flowers dress up everything don't they?
Look at that sweet table! Love the green "H" on the bright pink candlestick!
Wanna see the guest of honor? I do, but she won't make her appearance for a few days yet. So, I'll show you the co-guest of honor. This, is one of my "favorite cousins", Haley. She is beautiful and one of the sweetest people you could ever meet in your life. AND she's a Kindergarten teacher, with pretty much takes a saint in my book.
So, what did y'all do this weekend?
