Baby Baby!

There has been lots of babies being born lately...and I love it! I love making things for babies. First there was my best friend Monica. She had a baby girl, and she is the cutest little thing ever. I had a hard time deciding on what to stitch. I couldn't find anything that I really liked. So I decided to design something myself. I found this great book at the library, and it helped me make up a pattern.If you are into designing you our patterns I highly recommend this book. There are a lot of little patterns I would never use, but there are some great pages that are extremely cute and helpful. It also has a lot of great pages with alphabets that have come in handy on multiple projects.

Then my sister-in-law had her baby, and I just adore Jonny. I found a pattern that I liked, and I swore I bought it. After like a month I never got anything in the mail, and after some investigating I realized I didn't buy it. By this time, time was running out, I needed to start this project pronto! The baby was already born and I needed to get it done. I decided since Fiona's turned out so well, I should design Jonny's. Side note, I had actually already designed something months before, but I just couldn't get myself to stitch it, it didn't seem right. I designed something similar to the one I was going to buy but not as big and little more simple so that I could get it stitched up quickly. I think it turned out really cute.
