I went to my sis-in-law’s baby shower today. The baby shower was so fun with lots of visiting, just a couple of cute games to keep things moving, and the yummiest lunch made by her mother! (My favorites were the salsa, and the carrot cake. I need those recipes!)
the games 1- clothespin game: you get a clothespin when you arrive. you get to take someone’s clothespin if they cross their legs or arms. the person with the most clothespins wins!
2- how big is the mama’s belly?: everyone guesses how big the pregnant belly is by cutting a piece of ribbon that size. The person that guesses the closest wins!
3- baby item memory: a tray with items that have to do with baby gets passed around, then without looking everyone have to write as many down as they can in one minute. The person with the most items written down wins!
When Melissa told me she loves red, I couldn’t wait to make all these cute things for her! As you can see, I had a lot of fun shopping for pretty red fabrics. I finished the smocking on the little bubble romper while Melissa opened her tower of presents. (whew! just in time!) I can’t wait to see my new niece wearing the romper!
Heirloom blanket made of red imperial batiste with white rayon lace trim; Flannel blanket: red on one side, white with red rosebuds on the other side; flannel burp pads: one is just like flannel blanket, the other is red on both sides with scallops stitched in white along the edge; paci/toy holder in the little bag.
Last , but not least: red sailor style hand smocked romper with white collar that has french cotton lace around edge and hand embroidered bullion roses & shadow bow design. white french cotton lace cuffs, little heart glass pearl buttons down the front, and elastic leg openings with snaps on crotch for easy diaper changes. I made this bubble in a size NB-3 month. My pattern has sizes NB-18 months included.
