Michelle's baby shower

My good friend, Michelle, is pregnant with her first baby and I was so fortunate to be in town when they held her baby shower.

(my sister, Megan, Michelle, and my little sister, Judy~ who is due 5 days before Michelle)

Michelle is traditional, sweet, and feminine and I knew I had to have this pink, floral, flannel for her baby the minute I saw it.

I had so much fun making this baby set for her.
{I wish the pictures were better... even after editing them, this is the best they looked...}

She's naming her baby Sophie, just like my niece!
I'm so excited that Megan will be able to pass down all Sophie's personalized stuff to the new baby Sophie!

I used Lynnie Pinnie's applique swirl font and Hang to Dry's Steinweiss Script font (which is quickly becoming my FAVORITE font) to create the monogram on the blanket.

Of course, it had to have soft minky and flannel and yards of satin ruffles!

I also added a sweet bib,

some burp clothes,

a zipper bag,

and a baby toy. {Pickle Pie Designs}

I also got to make a blanket for Michelle for my Mom.
Mom bought all the fabrics (this adorable flannel by Riley Blake) and I sewed them up for her.

I really love how this one turned out. The colors are so pretty and Michelle is NOT a cat fan and we are... so I thought it was funny. he he he I used one of Designs by Juju's crazy cats for the applique. I love Julie because she actually has cat appliques... and cute ones, too. I never think there are enough cat appliques.

I also made a blanket for my new cousin, Rowan, with the same fabrics, but I forgot to take pictures of it in the hustle and bustle. I hate when I forget to get pictures, but I did get this darling one from my cousin's wife of her hanging out on it. Isn't she sweet!?

I used GGDesigns elephant applique for hers. I also made her one of these cute toys to go with it, too, but no picture... dang.
