Baby Shower

A friend of mine recently had a baby shower. She has a 10 year old boy and was surprised with a second pregnancy…a girl! Being me, I had to make all kinds of things.

Wanna see?


Baby diapers turned into burping cloths. Embroidered with sweet Caroline Julia’s initials, then trimmed out in the sweetest ruffles.


Embroidered onesie with matching brown and pink bows.


Another sweet embroidered onesie, to match her new…


Tutu!!! I loved making this. Think I’ll do a tutorial on this. Just have to buy more tulle. I think I may even start selling these.




Doesn’t the sweet onesie look adorable with the tutu? I can’t wait to see Julia wearing it!

I was giddy after making it…giddy for another baby. Still praying that God will bless us with one.





I just think this is the sweetest look! I wish I had made a matching headband for it. Think I will work on that. NEW PROJECT! Suh-weet!!!

I used my Cricut to cut out her name. I think it added the perfect touch!

I made sure the gift wrapping matched as well. If you look at the diaper cake, it’s sitting on a box. I used the Cricut to cut out “polka dots” since she was using the brown and pink polka dot theme in the nursery.

I had a blast making these items for her. This was one of those moments when you think…I should be doing this for a living. Hopefully….I will soon. Have to explain in another post!

My apologies for the dark pictures. By the time I finished the diaper cake it was almost midnight. I was trying not to disturb my sleeping family…bad lighting!

Have a GREAT day!
