So Many Baby Showers...

I've been in twelve weddings...yes I did say TWELVE :)
and yes, I do have quite the collection of bridesmaid dresses...
But really I loved being a bridesmaid...it's kinda like you're a celebrity at the wedding. People notice you, you get special treatment, excellent view of the ceremony...it's cool. I used to have a hard time with the bridesmaid thing, since I haven't had a wedding of my own yet, but I have learned over the years that it is the BIGGEST compliment ever! Your friends chose you to stand beside them as they began a new chapter in their lives. That's very cool.

Well here we are today and it now seems that all those lovely marriages are moving into the next phase of life...they are all having babies! Oh too cute!
Well, I have a few goodies that I always make for the new mommies and babies. I currently have 3 baby showers on the books for the next few weeks so I need to hustle and get these gifts completed. I love to make baby burp cloths and draw name illustrations (if I know the name of the little one). Anyways, I am SO excited about the burp cloths I am making right now because I found THE CUTEST fabric ever. Check it out...



SO.
CUTE.
RIGHT??! (ok they may not look so cute in this terrible photo, but they are cute for reals)

When completed, they will turn out looking something like these ones here...



Anyways, I need to make eight of them and I only have four partially completed...guess I know how I am spending my next few days...

Hope you are having a lovely end to your weekend!

Hi ..Thanks for visiting me and inspiring me with those sweet comments! I hate self sabotage! But sometimes I look at some stuff that sells that is not to my taste and think wow if they can do it so can I! Your little burp cloths are adorable and are gonna make some Mama really happy! Yes that painting is for sale, I sometimes am too lazy to put things up on Etsy, but if you would like to purchase it I can send you a invoice through paypal. It is on Flat canvas so you might have to frame it or sometimes I just put them up on a Plate hanger and it looks cute. just let me know if you are interested. You can email me directly if you wish. Thanks again for visiting me! Patti :D

Am I remembering things wrong, or do you also make these burp cloths using a pattern that is contoured to the mom's neck/shoulder? The best way I can describe it is like a maxi-pad:-P
