Well, boys and girls, I hope you’re having a good weekend! I had an awful week at work — had to work until 9 p.m. three nights this past week, so as a reward, I took Friday afternoon off and spend some time in the dungeon. Yipee!
SweetiePie’s sister-in-law will be having a baby girl in May and I wanted to make her a few things. SweetiePie gave me three words to work with — pink, brown and butterflies. I didn’t do much with the butterfly part, but I think I excelled with the pink and brown.
Two receiving blankets made with seersucker instead of flannel. This will be an Oklahoma summer baby — and having had one of those myself, flannel seemed too warm to me. A simple cotton worked beautifully for keeping the sun and wind off of the baby.
Three bibs. I debated about whether the chenille should be the front or the back.
I finally went with the front — it’s sooooo soft and I thought it would be perfect for wiping the baby’s little face.
My very favorite — Mary Jane booties made from this pattern. These will probably stay on the baby’s feet all of 15.3 seconds, but I don’t care. They make me want to squeal from their cuteness. There WILL be a Thimbleanna granddaughter someday to wear booties just like these. I hope. ;-)
Throw in some little bunny tub toys, and we have a pink and brown baby gift for a girl!
I think I love making baby gifts more than any other kind of gift. They’re small and quick and fun!
Now, I need to go tackle a UFO. They’re aging while I keep playing around with fun, quick little projects. Please send self-control and perseverance my way!
