Now, since this is my audition piece for Crafting with the Stars and American Crafter, I am going to share each piece of the project. I'll start with the last piece that I finished, his outfit. I made this to be a "take-me-home" outfit, so it is teeny tiny. I was dying when I finished it. What is it about tiny things that just make you want to stare for hours?
I made a SUPER soft, CRAY warm blanket for him so that he won't freeze in our Utah weather. I love the binding fabric (it's sari fabric)!! It really "pops" next to the brown. I think it MAKES the blanket. It was a bit difficult to work with, but SOOO worth it.
All in the box!
And here is the happy Mama! Heidi is so cute, she had to 'put it on' him immediately. haha! I can't wait to see it on him for real. (Can you believe she's due in 5 weeks?! She is SO tiny. I was a bus by 35 weeks, just sayin.)
This is a trick I use All. The. Time. I don't love to wrap. In fact, I kind of dislike it. So, this is my solution:
Pretty huh? It's a pre-decorated box! It's a GREAT presentation and, it's a keepsake box that they can use to keep the special little things they will collect at Little E's birth and beyond.
So there you have it! A sweet special gift for a sweet special baby. Can't wait to me you Little E!!!
**All of the pieces in this project are my own patterns, except for the bottoms of the booties, (which I got here) but I completely reworked the top portion on the booties to fit the vision I had in my head.**
I'll be linking this project up to the linky parties on the right. :)
