Yet Another Baby Girl Gift

This is my last baby gift to show…that I know of…for now.  This is for my dear friend Desirae. Des and I met our freshman year of high school.  We were the only freshman on the Varsity basketball team- we were that good :).  I was very blessed to know Des and am constantly in awe of her kind and caring nature. Thank you for all that you do for me Des! Ok. Enough of the gushy stuff.  Let’s see the goods…

I picked up this onesie at the DownEast sale and added some ruffles for an elegant feel. What newborn doesn’t want to feel elegant, right?

The onesie is a size 12 months so I went with a rolled flower hair clip instead of a headband.  Hopefully baby girl will have some long locks to showcase this little gem.

 I asked my friend if she needed anything and she said that she didn’t have a car-seat canopy.  So one more canopy.  I loved the orange and pink in the fabric and used the colors for the mom gift too.

I did a matching burp cloth with a crocheted edge. Remember this from my FAIL post? Well I followed the advice of Jo from Boogaloo and changed my lower looper thread to brown and I changed my needle thread color as well. Much better. Thanks Jo!

Like I said, I went with an orange and pink pallet for the Thank You cards and mom gift.
