I am going to a baby shower this weekend for a friend of mine (did you know that nearly everyone I know who is married either just had a baby or is having one shortly?) and have been trying to figure out what to give her for her baby shower gift.
I decided to try a little bit of home grown lovin.
I am not an artsy crafty kind of person so my decision is kind of scaring me. I am going to make a stuffed owl and also sew an applique of one similar to the one I make onto a onsie (step by step tutorial courtesy of Littlenannygoat). I am very nervous and am hoping that I wont just give up in frustration and go out and buy her something someone (the great folks at Target) had already made. So much simpler buying it, but
- I think it will be fun to make,
- I will be creating something thus learning a new skill,
- it will be easier to afford since I have the perfect material for it, and I really need to learn to sew.
fangled thing called a sewing machine, and see what it can do! If I like it, I may just beg my hubby relentlessly until we save up enough to go out and buy one for me to keep in the home.
Regardless of what happens, wish me luck, and I will be praying no fingers get sewn into the owl. Off to explore new talents!
