This is the same set as the pink ones I did by following the talented Erin Lincoln's design...but we don't know the gender of the baby yet....its not due till Nov. and the parents want the surprise. So...I tried to do it in colors and design that would be appropriate to both genders. Unfortunately, I think it might have come out more on the boy gender side. I have to admit...making things for girls appeals to me more than boy things. LOL...
Anyway, this time (as opposed to the pink set), I made the bags with a liner and used sew on heat n Bond and tried my hand at appliqueing...I need to practice BIG time....just can't figure out the curves and what the best stitch to use is...but I'm sure the good folks that gets this won't care if its perfect or not....(I hope!)
All the appliques were cut from Silhouette files and cut on the Cameo...I love pulling the material off the mat to reveal the nice, sharp cut edges.
In each bag is 2 diapers, a travel size pack of Wipes, travel size lotion and hand santitizer and a couple small plastic trash bags. I appliqued and then decorated them a bit further with ribbons and buttons. My favorites are the giraffe and the owl...I like the color combos in them with the layers. I made 5 bags with a giraffe, an owl, a onesie, a dog and bear.
I used the same tag as the pink set but changed up the colors to green and yellow and added green scrapbook paper to the clothespin and then added some glitter.
The shoes on the card were picked up at KC from Michaels. I believe they are made by Jolee's by You...I simply fell in love with how 'real' they looked like the old shoes I used to put on Jerri Ann...even the paper has that canvas look and feel of those old shoes. Added some rhinestones and, of course, the paper was from patterns in SS and cut out.
Have a GREAT day!
