a baby shower story

no, this isn't a new TLC show. But I did go to a baby shower tonight. The evite came with this cute little graphic. Isn't it sweet? I knew I wanted to do something with it, but what?

How about I turn it into an applique for a sweet little baby tee?

and put it on a burpcloth?

Maybe that star-shaped cookie cutter would make a cute applique too.

and then I can do up some burpcloths to match that one too.


I've never done baby tees before. I want to make a MILLION of them now! How easy and fast (about and hour for all this) and cute. And I realized that you really CAN use some of those little scraps. I need to get a scrap saving/storing system in place!

In other news, I found out a dear friend of mine who I haven't seen in years (due to her being French and living in France until just recently) is coming to see me tomorrow for the weekend!!! And she tells me she's a fabric hoarder. I'm telling her to bring her sweats and her stash and we'll glue ourselves to the sewing machine all weekend!! I'm so excited to see her!

I've been wanting to try something along these lines for a cousin. She had a baby last year... but we've been in Germany the entire time. It's been completely slipping my mind.
Your projects look sooo cute!
