Open Studio Sunday

 Earlier today, I was honored to attended a wonderful
 baby shower for the lovely Kacie McLyman (center). 
She is beautiful inside and out, cool, and fun-loving. 
She'll be a great Mom, and making a few gifts 
to help her on her way was truly a joy. 

Weeks in the making, I had to keep these gifts 
a secret from you because Kacie's mom is 
my dear friend Vickie, and Vickie reads this blog. 
Hi Vickie.

 Now without further delay, here are 
the gifts made with love just for Kacie. 
 Because every mom needs a dependable diaper bag, 
and Kacie likes zebra print, this bag quickly became 
the starting point for the gift.
If you need a diaper bag that doesn't look 
like a diaper bag, you have to try this pattern by 
Rebeka Lambert.
Cute, hand printed onesies.
In case you're wondering, "M" is for Max. 
 All rolled up, ready for the diaper bag.
 Apologies for the dark photo, but I wanted to tell 
you about this wonderful travel changing pad.
A pattern in Lotta Jansdotter's book 
Simple Sewing for Baby, it's a really useful gift
 to make and give. As you can see, it rolls up 
and pops right into the diaper bag. 
Every new parent needs this!
 No restless baby is safe from the powers of a good book, 
a flannel tab blankie and a soft bunny. 
(These PDF patterns are available on my Etsy shop.)
All loaded up and ready to give to the most 
beautiful new mama-to-be. 
Wishing you the happiest motherhood, Kacie!
