So my best friend from college is pregnant. Finally! They have been waiting for this baby for what seems like forever! She found out that baby is a girl. We will call baby girl C for the purpose of this blog (I'm not usually paranoid about things like this, but one cannot take chances with honorary nieces, can one?) So I am so excited about making things for C! You really have no idea. But I guess you will when this probably has too many pictures blog post is finished! C isn't supposed to arrive until early May, so I still have PLENTY of crafty time left.
My favorite present to date. A stuffed elephant! Adorable. The pattern is free from Birch Fabrics! You can find a copy of it here.
The last show and tell for today is this burp cloth. I haven't used the embroidery function on my machine much, but decided that I would give it a go. The first one didn't have stabilizer and ended up in the trash with all the pulling that the fabric did. The second turned out much better with a teeny bit of iron on stabilizer where the initial was going. The back is minkey and it is oh so soft. There are several more in the works to make the mommy-to-be a nice set. She's going to kill me with all of the goodies I keep making. She already has a huge sack of vintage baby clothes I've been collecting for which ever of us got pregnant first! She said that my husband will be surprised whenever baby Meeks comes along and I get all of the things I've given baby C back! *Cough* he has no idea how much I've bought for this precious baby! I love giving gifts and have never been able to keep a surprise for long. Most everyone knows what they are getting from me for Christmas way before the packages are even wrapped. Good thing God loves a cheerful giver! Sorry this post has been over the top with baby things and quite lengthy. Hope you enjoyed taking a gander at the crafts of the day. If you have any questions on anything, let me know!
