Baby Gift

This past Labor Day I decided to not do anything and just sew. It had been a busy weekend with all the family that was in town and Charlotte's Blessing. Plus I threw a dinner for everything, something I never thought I'd ever do in my life. But heck I did it.

So Monday arrived and I decided no cleaning and no working - I was going to sew. For the second time since Charlotte arrived and my mom left everything seemed to work out and I was able to sew!!

I made a burp cloth, flannel blanket, and a matching onsies for my friend. My friend and her husband are having their first kid in December and they are just so excited.


I also like this photo because Charlotte's foot made it into the photo.

Well it's finally quiet at my house. I've been up way to much the past two nights with Charlotte. Then this morning she cried for two hours and we finally went on a car ride to get her to sleep. So I'm going to collapse on the couch and maybe get 30 mins of sleep. Then I need to furiously clean the house (really just do dishes and fold laundry.) Ugh. Wish me luck.

I love the fabric! Elephants and Giraffes, how cute! They have such cute stuff out now. I never would have thought to just add something to the front of a onesie when Alyssa was little, it's SO cute!

Good luck with the house. I'm no help there!

I too have been having a hard time finding sewing time. Maybe if I didn't spend so much time on the internet. Your gift set turned out very cute. Maybe one of these years we could leave the kids with the dad's and we could get together for a sewing weekend.
