Little Lyric's Gift Set

So, I know I promised to post this earlier, but, I forgot that we had a "Souper" Bowl party to attend, for which I had to make soup.   Which took a good portion of my afternoon, then there was the party, and now it's 1am and I'm FINALLY writing this.  lol.  O-well, better late then never right?  For those interested I made Itailian Wedding Soup and it was awesome. :)

Anyway, you guys wanted to hear about the gift set right?!

Here it is!  I'm calling it the Little Lyric Set.  I had such a wonderful time designing this set!  (Like the booties?!  I'll be sharing my pattern (for which I used the bottoms of these booties) on this week's Tute {Yourself} Tuesday, so don't forget to stop by, get the pattern and link up!)

The blanket is what I call a "car seat blanket" because it is perfectly sized for a carseat!  No more blankets hanging out and ending up on the ground!!  Woohoo!!!!!  (I seriously HATE when Eme's blankets end up half on the ground because they are too big.  So, this is the perfect solution.)

Then I made a little pink monkey hat to match the blanket so that Lyric can hit the town in style!

I think the flower is a fun little detail. :)

The jewled center of the flower is really a button that matches the one on the chin strap.

Gotta love a little bling on a baby! :)

Next up is the dress that I totally teased you all with last night.  I la-la-LOVE it!!!!

I was seriously dying when I finished it!!  Remember the little white dress that I showed you a few weeks ago?  That was the first draft of this dress.

I shortened the sleeves up, elasticized the neck line and gathered the sleeve and hem lines to make them poofy.  Poofy anything is super fabulous on baby girls, don't you think?! :)

To round the gift out, I made her these sweet little booties.  (Which I realize I showed you just a few days ago...)

Based on your sweet, sweet comments, I decided to keep the polka dots instead of switching to the poms.  Thanks for your help on that! :)

I'll leave you with one last parting shot of the whole gift.  :)

What do you guys think?

Oh!  Before I go, have you guys heard about "One Month to Win It"?  It's a new crafting competion that is being hosted by several different blogs.  The auditions for month one start Wednesday!  I'm planning on entering, but I'm not sure which project to enter...  The two projects I'm deciding between are this post's  Little Lyric Gift Set and Little Elijah's Gift Set.  Which set do you guys like better?

PLEASE, PLEASE help me decide!!!!  Pretty, pretty, pretty please!!!!

Ok guys!  Apparently THIS is the one to enter so, I have!!!  Fingers crossed and wish me luck!!!!!

One Month To Win It

And, as usual, I'll be linking to the awesome linkies on my side bar. :)


  1. You're so talented! The mom must be thrilled. The dress is just so adorable, and the hat is perfect. Love the little pop of bling. I'm going to have to vote for this set over Elijah's, just because as a mom of 2 boys, little girl's pink things make my heart flutter.

  2. I la la love that dress too!!! Great job and my 2 cents is to enter the Lyric set. They're both really cute but that dress is a shoe in!
    Good luck and let us know what you decide and where to go check out your entry!
