Luckily, I had planned ahead and stocked up on the essentials to make it through the storm! I'm not talking milk & eggs here people.
One of my dear friends had her second baby a few weeks ago. A baby boy. And get this...as she & her hubby were about to head to the hospital, baby had other plans and she ended up delivering the baby at HOME! Such a brave Momma & Dad. It's a great story. I wanted to make a little gift to send her way to welcome Baby Jack to their family.
I made Baby Jack and his big sister Ellie some appliqued shirts.
A bright blue & green flannel for big sis...a brown & blue houndstooth flannel for the lil' bro.
(A two-for! Selfishly fullfilling my love of houndstooth.)
For days when baby is feeling extra handsome...
And a matching "lovey" for baby.
I wish I had made one in my size!I made this with the houndstooth flannel on one side and a super-soft-fuzzy-white fabric on the other. (Technical fabric term.) Fair warning: when you cut this fabric, it will look like it's snowing in your craft room. You will look like the abominable snowman. I don't think the woman at the cutting table at the craft store will ever recover! (Have a lint roller handy.)
Welcome Baby Jack! I can't wait to meet you.
(And to Jack's Momma...if you're reading this, act surprised. :-) I couldn't wait to post these!)
