Congratulations, Vicki Kate!

What better way to celebrate a happy event for one of my favourite bloggers than a virtual Baby Shower!  Congratulations Vicki, and looking forward to hearing more about the little one when he or she arrives.

My gift is an owl sleeping bag.  I hope the little one sleeps soundly in it – at least some of the time!

This is a great pattern, if you are planning to make a baby gift.  The only part I had a problem with was the button holes – my machine did not like the layers of fabric and wadding and refused to cooperate.  So I went with some snaps instead.

The details:

  1. I’m lost for words. Truly, I can’t believe how generous and amazing you all are! This is so unexpected and such a lovely, wonderful surprise!! I came into the office this morning to do a quick bit of work before the school run to find notification after notification in my inbox! Thank you so much, you’ve all managed to move me to tears this morning, in the best possible way!!

  2. Super cute! Love that owl fabric 🙂 (Also, snaps win out over buttons any day of the week/time of the night with babies 😉 )
