Anyway, whilst I clean up my way overloaded hard drive in an effort to share some vacation photos with y'all, here is the gift that I made for my friends new baby. Yes, the special little one that was born more unique than most that I wrote about in an earlier post: To The Third Power.
I love giving girlie gifts that are NOT pink at girl baby showers. Don't get me wrong, I love pink. But it's fun to give something that will stand out among all the pink that is naturally given. Besides, I don't really dig baby showers in general because of all the ooohing and aaahing so this way I don't add to that reaction in general.
The material for this project was purchased on a whim the day after Christmas and then when this baby arrived 5 weeks early on the 27th I knew just what that material was meant for. I added some very soft white material and it became just right for a nursery that is done in a ladybug theme. I gave the blanket as the gift for the baby and the pillowcase as a surprise for the 'big sister'.
