Baby Shower

Today was my friend Emily's baby shower. I gave her Penni Panda with a pink ribbon and made her a taggie blanket with black, white, and pink accents. I think it's my favorite taggie so far! It's too bad I don't get to make them that often (since I can't sell them), because they are a lot of fun to design! One thing I did with this taggie that I hadn't with the others was a top stitching around the edges. This really helped to keep the taggie flat and make the side more uniform.

A close-up shot of the ribbons. I could spend so much money on ribbons alone. I'm on the 4th Shopaholic book (I got the series for Christmas), and I am trying not to channel Becky Bloomwood when I go into Joann Fabrics. Especially since I am saving for a fancy embroidery machine. ;) Here's hoping for a safe delivery and a happy, healthy baby, Emily!


  1. I love this, and you did just a great job! The colors are perfect, and I know little babies love these!

  2. How lovely! And I know what you mean about being a shopaholic at craft supply stores -hehe!

  3. They're both beautiful, and the baby is going to love them :-) Brian couldn't believe they were homemade - he's already asking why I don't make stuff like that!

  4. Thanks everyone! Emily, I'm so glad that you both like them! Let me know if you get any other ideas!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
