Baby Shower Gift

My friend Megan just had a little girl, and this morning was her baby shower. I've been DYING to show off these cute little things, so now I can!
Did I mention how in love I am with Alexander Henry's Apples + Pears? Because I am. I like how it's very NON-traditional for baby items. I made this little tag blanket for Aubrey to snuggle with and chew on when she gets a bit bigger.
And the other side of the blanket is this soft lamb's wool kind of fabric. I was going for some nice texture.
I also appliqued some of those pears and apples to a little onesie. And because no girl should ever be without ruffles falling off of her...
... here's the back! So fun. I used this tutorial. I'm sure I could have figured it out myself, but it's so nice to have some one tell you the measurements and give you the step by step.
Then I wrapped it all up in this little purse that Aubrey can use when she gets bigger. Thanks Bri for the tag blanket and bag inspiration!

Congrats Megan! I'm so excited that you have a little girl to be all girly with!

So cute! I like the ruffles on the onesie, I'll have to steal that one. I've also seen tutus or skirts sewn on that are cute. I haven't made any, though.

And I do have my mom's serger. It just doesn't work. I need to take it in to be fixed, but that's not really in the budget right now. :-(
