a sweet girl

 Happy Monday!
Hope that your weekend was lovely and you were able to enjoy some beautiful weather! On Saturday I went to a dear friend's baby shower and had a wonderful time celebrating her and the baby! I had so much fun making the baby gifts and now that the mommy has opened them, I can show you!
One gift was this cute name garland, that I used some pretty scraps of fabric, appliquéd her name and added a little hand stitching around the letters, and then sewed it on twine. Simple, but sweet! 
  Another gift was a baby quilt that I made using a charm pack from the line Posy by Aneela Hoey, which I just loved when it came out! The colors are so pretty together, and that mint green is gorgeous!
 I tied the quilt with lavender pearl cotton in the corners and washed it to get it crinkly and soft, ready to be cuddled with!
 I also made some pretty burp cloths using white flannel on the back. 
 And, the last little gifts were patchwork baby bibs! I used this template from Amy of NanaCompany and some pretty pink, yellow, and mint prints for the patchwork. These colors are so lovely together and perfect for a spring baby! 
I just love how cute it came out! 
 And, for this one I used some left over prints from the quilt with some pretty vintage lace to adorn it. For both, I used pink gingham ribbon for the ties, and white flannel on the back. 
 These were so sweet to make, and I can't wait to see Naomi wearing them! 
The day of the shower was also my friend's birthday, so I made her a "Bless our Home" hoop art. I am working on a couple for the shoppe, along with one that has strawberries, which I look forward to showing you soon! I was so happy that all the gifts were well received and loved, and I can't wait to meet this precious baby girl in May! 

Wishing you all a most lovely and crafty week!
