A few baby shower items

Hi Crafters! thank you for the well wishes! I really appreciate them! I am feeling better and I have been working on a few items for my daughters baby shower this weekend.

The first is a diaper bag, burping towel and wipes case. I started making these when my granddaughter was born and they have quickly become a "staple" for baby shower gifts lately!

The diaper bag is very large, I created the bag pattern myself after seeing something similar at a sewing center. The wipe case is covered with the same fabric as the bag, if you search on Youtube for "diaper wipe case" you will find many videos on how to cover these. The last item is the burping towel, this is basically a prefolded diaper that I fold a little smaller and add the decorative fabric on the top and bottom.

I still have a few more items to complete, one will be a diaper is turning out really cute! I can't wait to show you it!

Then, of course, I had to create a card for the shower.

I used my Gypsy to design this card, it was super easy. Using the "New Arrival" cart, I selected the baby buggy image. I copied and flipped the image and then welded together to create the card. I cut the layers out of blue, blue gingham and grey cardstock and inked the edges. I added a bow and a stamped a baby sentiment from PTI's Bitty Baby set. I also added some highlights with my white gel pen.

Well, I'm off to create some more items......thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
