the perfect shower gift

About 3 years ago, two of the teachers at my kids’ school were pregnant, and due the same month!  So all the families of kids that go there, got together for a surprise joint babyshower.  What fun!

I made each of them an heirloom blanket, dress, and bonnet for baby to wear home from the hospital.  I used the same pattern for these little dresses, and made them unique by using different color fabric and lace, and different embroidery designs.  I had my daughter (5 years old at the time) ask Nikki and Kindra what their favorite color was so I could make their gift be that color.  It snowballed into all the kids in the class having a discussion about favorite colors! How cute is that!

Nikki’s favorite color is peach, so her gift set is peach with off-white french laces, hand done embroidery, and eyelet bonnet. (size: infant)

Haeley looks so sweet in her heirloom dress!  (notice that she likes to lay down on her heirloom blanket)

Kindra’s favorite color is yellow, so guess why I chose yellow!  Her heirloom gift set is yellow imperial batiste with white laces, hand embroidery, and eyelet bonnet.  (size: infant)

Macy Hazel sleeps peacefully on her heirloom blanket, in her pretty yellow dress.

    I went over to Missy’s to pick up a blanket for my friend who just had a baby and I got to see these dresses that she makes in person. The hand embroidery is exquisite! They are beautiful dresses. I personally think that handmade items like this are a treasure. They are sweet and simply lovely.
