Geek is Chic baby shower set

I just love this baby shower gift set.
I made it for my little sister to gift.



It's been so rainy and cloudy and gross here, that I had a hard time getting good photos of the set-
but TRUST ME! it's so cute!

It started with this blanket and then I added these burp rags that I made with the bias tape I made.



I used my normal pattern for the burp rags, but layered them one terry cloth, one flannel, and then the cotton on top. I sandwiched them together, basted them, and then sewed on the bias.
It took a while- but I love them.

Then came the onesies- which was the funnest part!
The Daddy of this baby wears bowties!



I knew I had to use this bow from ggdesigns for him.
Then we used this tie and suspenders and tie and vest from Planet Applique completing the 3, 6, and 9 month onesie set.

I love how the argyle on the vest looks like a little sweater vest! :)



I really wish I had better pictures of this little set, but the sun won't come out and I'm tired of waiting to show you guys. I finished it on Saturday.

Hey!!! Do you like my new blog look?
Thank you so much to Shauna for making it so pretty and making my margins smaller!

In celebration I have an awesome give-a-way lined up for tomorrow!
You guys are gonna be so excited!
Really.
You might pee your pants.
Come back tomorrow to find out what you could win!
