I had these visions last week of making some handmade gifts for my lovely friend, Kristyn, who is about to have her first baby. Her shower was on Saturday, and before then I had scaled back my grand imaginings to a simple taggie toy to go along with the nursing cover and books I had bought. Which I started making the morning of the shower and (surprise) didn't get done in time. So Lord willing, I'll give it to her when the wee boy is born. By which time I hope to have made some bibs and burps to go with it. Hope springs eternal.
I used Chez Beeper Bebe's clever, free rainbow sunshine plushie pattern (love it, thank you!) and scraps of chenille, fabric and ribbon from my stash.
