baby shower

My friend and I put on a baby shower for two friends. I love having the chance to make all the desserts I have been saving in my favorites file for a long time. I made this Kentucky Butter Cake and these awesome Black-Bottom Coconut Bars. Both are soooo dang good and I ate my share before I even brought them to the shower. I also love (really do LOVE) making gifts for the babies. Here are the outfits and burp cloths I made. The cloth diapers that I used for the burp cloths came in that dark blue. You can buy a package (I bought mine at Target) with 3 boy colors (dark blue, light blue, and lime green) or 3 girl colors (bright pink, pink, and orange - I think). Then, I just followed this tutorial and added the fabric. The pants I made of knit I got at a garage sale and a t-shirt that my 6 year old never wore. The one from the t-shirt was easy because the hem was already there - love that. I need to learn how to work with knit a bit better. The needle got caught a lot and I got a bit frustrated, but in the end the pants looked like pants!

Wow. You could sell those for $20 each. Or better yet, sell the design and get some serious bank.

Darling. Just darling!
