Handmade Baby Shower Gift

The gift theme for the baby shower was "My Favorite Things", which really is a great theme fora first-time mom and baby. And it was actually Emily--the mom-to-be--'s idea

I decided one of my favorite things is the bapron, so I made her one (This time baby-sized and girly.)

I used the extra corner of some fabric I bought to make a classy, feminine apron for myself--luckily there was *just* enough leftover for a little bapron.  And I found a cute coordinating flannel in my stash. 

Something that was a favorite of my sisters, that she gifted to us with our last newborn was a Boon Squirt Spoon. Emily and her husband had actually seen us using the spoon at church before and thought it was the coolest thing, so I made a mental note to get one for them when they were pregnant.  The store I was at no longer sold the Boon brand, but they had this similar baby food-dispensing spoon of another brand. 

The two gifts made a great pair. 

I was happily impressed by the number of hand-made gifts she received at the shower.  She also received a hand-made quilt, some embellished cloth diaper burp rags, and a hair clip organizer ribbon, with a handful of homemade flower barrettes. 

After the shower the co-host and I were talking about this and asked: wouldn't it be cool if we could have an "all-handmade" baby shower sometime.  Obviously we'd have to be a bit selective on the invite list, but wouldn't that gift-opening everyone would enjoy watching?!
