Little Boy Shower gifts!

Have you guys missed me???
Oh... Spring Break was so fun... and over so fast!

I needed yesterday to recuperate, wash clothes, pick up, un-pack, read the 1000's of emails in my inbox, open mail, pay bills, file taxes, and catch up on my tivo.

My machine is calling my name... but I still have some catching up to do.
So... here's some gifts I made for my new.... family member.... my cousin's new baby. What does that make him to me??? I don't know. But I know it was so FUN to sew for a little boy for a change! My Mom shipped me most all the fabrics and she let me work off some Christmas money I borrowed from her and I made the gifts from the both of us.

Here's a load of KY stuff I made him- so cute.

A staple in every shower gift I give- large receiving blankets and burp rags without embroidery.

I love these two little bibs! The crayons are from Lynnie Pinnie and the peace sign is from Embroidery Boutique. The pattern for the bibs is from my favorite 3 Basic Bibs pattern.

I just love these little beanie toys for babies. I was so excited when Sewing for Sarah put out a pre order for more of these toys. I already got this set which I'm not really crazy about, but I can't wait to see the rest.

I used the fabrics Mom chose for the back of the toys. So cute!
All the cotton fabrics are from fabric.com.

Then I made these little in the hoop projects for her to throw in the baby bag. The little zippered tissue case and this little coin purse that is perfect for carrying spare pacis.

Annie saw this little patch somewhere and liked the saying, so my sister Megan, digitized this file and I made it into a patch that she can iron on whatever she wants.

Mom really wanted a onesie with something chess related on it and Lydsie was so kind to digitize this little chess piece for me. I love this onesie!

A hooded towel with this sweet cub from Planet Applique and some receiving blankets with a little bear toy from Pickle Pie.

Another hooded towel (one of my favorites, ever!) with a little whale from Lynnie Pinnie and this little Hawaiian shirt.

I can finally post it, now that my cousin got her package in the mail!
I hope Xavier likes all his new stuff.

Yes, I missed you, glad you're back. I'm sure you had an awesome time. Nothing better than a good visit with family and friends. So get caught up with stuff, I'm sure your sewing machine is calling your name.
See ya,

Oh, I love all the things you made.
Girl you were busy!

What lucky parents!! They won't have to buy anything!!! It's just too bad that you didn't make UT stuff instead of UK stuff! Ha!

All turned out cute. I hope Annie likes it all.
