I love baby showers! It's such a fun opportunity to celebrate the mom and the new baby. It is so magical. Today was such a day! Sarah is due at the end of August. I am still hoping they name her Veronica. Here's hoping.
I made the baby an infant car seat cover. I found an amazing tutorial by All Free Sewing on YouTube. It really walked me through every single step. I was very happy with the end result. The fabric was on sale and what looks like a high end item ended up costing AT LEAST 1/2 of the cost because I made it myself. I've seen these range from $50-$65 each!
Bear in mind: I'm still a novice at this sewing thing - but I am enjoying it and loving it more each time.
I decided to put some of the skills my former roommate taught me for Sarah's second gift. I used a huggies wipes case and covered it up with quilt batting, fabric and some decorative rick-rack and trim using a glue gun as my weapon of choice. These can sell anywhere from $10-$15 each but cost a fraction of the cost when making your own.
If you venture into making your own, let us know! We'd love to hear from you.
