Little Blessings Keepsake

Oh how I love brown and pink!

There is nothing I love more that sewing for a newborn! I made this set for a friend and have been promising to blog about it for about 100 years!  (Which, according to my DS is actually possible…the other day he asked me if there were cars when I was a kid!  ”No,” I said, “We rode dinosaurs to school.”)  I was finally able to put the finishing touches on the gift last night SO, the wait is over! I absolutely adore sewing for newborns and have blogged previously about this Itty Bitty Baby Dress from Made by Rae.  I just love how small this sweet little dress is and it is a perfect reminder of how truly tiny newborns are.  The booties are from a pattern I designed and I really can’t believe how much I love them.  I don’t know if it is the fabric or the fact that they actually LOOK like booties that excites me, but I absolutely love the way they came out and I think they suit the dress well.  This is the first time I’ve sewn a box bag and it was surprisingly easy!  I’ve done totes in the past and this is similar.  The bag is useful for carrying diapers/wipes/bottles/etc. but it is also intended to serve as the gift bag too.  All of these items pack nicely in the Little Blessings Bag for safe keeping!

    I love brown and pink too, only I don’t have any pink babies to sew for right now. LOVE the fabrics you used and wow that is an impressive grouping of items for a gift – your friend is one lucky girl!
