Last week I went to my second baby shower in as many months. There are currently 6 pregnant women around me on a regular basis, 3 due during the current quarter of the year and 3 newly pregnant. That means, lots of baby showers. This most recent one was for a dear friend. This is number 4 for her and, after 3 boys, she’s getting a girl! I didn’t take many pictures because I was too busy having fun. I did manage to snap one of the mom-to-be.
Of course I captured her with a funny look on her face, because my photo skillz are just that good.
My gift to her was entirely homemade and/or reusable, down to the wrapping.
All wrapped up and ready to go in a lined basket tied with ribbon and a balloon.
The gift included two flannel receiving blanket, a car seat cover (made from this pattern), and a nursing cover (similar to these commercial ones). Apologies for the crappy pictures. I was in a hurry and didn’t think to take them until I’d wrapped it all up. The kids had a ton of fun playing with the balloon and ribbon once the basket was unwrapped. I feel really good about giving presents that I made with my own hands and that are as useful as they are pretty.
