Housewarming Card Tutorial

Baby Shower Gifts

Today is my sister-in-law's baby shower and here are some of the things I've made for my soon-to-be-born niece.

EPB-Sewing_BurpRags

Starting off....burp rags.  Every baby needs them, and I think cute ones are the ticket.  I bought a pack of fat quarters (pieces of fabric for you non sewing peeps) and sewed them to one side of a cloth diaper and added a bit of trim.  Cute & easy.

Of course they needed a little tag so the parents would know what they are...they're 1st time parents LOL.

I also added some embellishments to a Making Memories Pre-Made Baby Album.  -I can never just leave things alone.  :)

EPB-BabyBookDetail3

I added flowers through out it (here's some examples) and made sure all the buttons were dressed with thread...yes I'm a button threader...can't have naked buttons!

Now of course I needed a card, so here's one I made with my Cricut Expression and the New Arrival cartridge.

And lastly, I needed a really big bow or something to go on some large gifts I got them from their gift registry...well I hate to spend money on bows since they are just going to get thrown out, so I made some flowers that Teresa Collins showed us how to make at Inspiration Unlimited to go on top.
