Little feet will soon be pattering in the house next door and in my madness, I decided to throw my neighbour a baby shower. Don't take that wrong, she's lovely, our kids are similar ages, we have coffee frequently, she buys me bread and milk for when I return from a trip, she's the neighbour from heaven. But baby shower? These are not common in the UK. In fact, I have never been to a baby shower, so what possessed me?
A diaper cake. Yes, never before has the humble nappy set off such a chain of events. I was browsing the minimoopys on flickr when I came across this. I had to make one. That lead to invitations.
So then I needed a gift. Perfect excuse to try out the bitty bootie pattern. These little green numbers were my trial run. I'm not 100% happy with them, but they were fine for a first go and I've learned a lot from my mistakes with these. I still can't master blanket stitch though.
