Not Just For Baby!!! July 7, 2010

Hi everyone! If you read my Hoo are you post you know that I made a CCWCED project. Whats CCWCED you may ask……Read this post: bring it on ccwced. That post tells you everything and shows you want I got too. I have done 3 projects, but really who can stop at 3 when there is so many things not used yet?? I can’t! So I thought about what I could make, then I remember I had a baby shower in 2 weeks to attend. One of my friends is having a baby girl. Well I keep this meduim size box in my house that has blankets, picture frames, baby bags, and a bunch of baby stuff in there because my friends tend to all get pregant at the same time. One year I have 5 baby showers to go to all with in 2 months.

Well I was looking at my Crafting Doom items left and I started to think why does everyone only give gifts to the baby? Why not the big sisters or the mommy’s? Well I just had to make them something too. So I took out a bunch of stuff. Thats my madness I gather a bunch of supplies. Sometimes using all of it and something not even half. So Heres what i got:

From the Enevople I found: A red tassle, the rest of the matted bunny photo, a scrapbook clipboard piece, and one green scarf.
Items from my stash: some different ribbons, some pink t-shirt fabric, needles, sissors, thread, and some barette and pin backings.
Items from the baby box: One cute picture frame, baby gift bag, and one pink blanket with white duckies on it.

So I made three people gifts here… sorry no tutorial, but I will show you what I made and tell you alittle something about them. In the pictures below you will see that I made a hair barette, a bunny picture, a clutch purse, and a cute clip for the babies binkie (thats what the red this).
(click photo to see more) For the mommy to be I made this smiple light weight clutch out of the green scarf. I folded it a few times, stiched the bottom and side shut, added a handle, and closed it with a flower pin brooch. The cute hair bow is for the big sister to be. I used the scrapbook chipboard piece as the base and added a t-shrit fabric bow to that, and hotglued it on a barette blank. I really lucked out with the bunny photo because the mommy to be told me she was going to have an all animal theme for the room. So I wanted the baby to have art. I just stuck the photo of the bunnies I had left over from my frame project into the picture frame I choose. The red tassle was adjusted a bit. I cut off the tassle and added a red ribbon bow, then hot glued on a pin back. I lucked out on this project too because the tassle had a small loop at the end so instant blinkie clip. For wrapping items I bagged the small items in a ziplock and added a card so they would not get to lost in the big bag. Instead of using Tissue paper I just wrapped the items up in the blanket and placed everything in the bag. So my baby shower gift is done.
I will be linking this to a few blog hops so leave me a comment if you follow me. I love following back!!
