Happy Baby!

Oops.  Is it January already?

Back in mid-November, I got to go to Casey's super fun baby shower.  Casey is one of those people that fully appreciates handcrafted stuff.  "Those people" are even more fun to make things for.  Especially when they have babies.

Back in November, I made her baby boy a few things: a tie onesie, a mustache burpcloth, some fused plastic bibs, a spy owl (because owls are special to his mommy) and a bin to put them all in.

This was the first time I'd made a fabric bin, although I've seen a million tutorials for them and always intended to try.  I read through a few and then just sort of winged it.  The insides are supported by cereal box cardboard, so they are sturdy-ish.  I'd like to make a few more of those for the little collections of things at my house.  Blocks, plastic superheros, socks...

Credit where credit is due.  I did an Etsy trade with LoudMouse for Jack's tie onesie when he was a newbie. I didn't come up with the idea, but I do love it.  I'd seen applique necktie onesie's before, but I really like using an actual tie.  Other than than being more, well, dimensional, it just cracks me up.  (Check out LoudMouse's shop for cool tea towels and other goodies.  She's clearly a Doctor Who fan, so she gets extra points from me.)

Welcome to the world, Hudson!  I can't wait to meet you!
