Baby Sets.

There seem to be so many babies being born at the moment and I love nothing more than giving a handmade gift that is unique and one of a kind.  I was recently asked to make a couple of baby bib and shoe sets for a baby girl with a softie included in the set.  I decided to make a few extra sets to give away as gifts to all those babies that seem to be on the way at the moment.   Here are the five finshed sets.

All these fabrics (except for the spots) I purchased from this fabric shop.  It is such a beautiful shop to browse but I always end up buying something when I go in there.  The owners are just lovely too.
I think this one's my favourite set.
I love this set too but the poor snail didn't really work.  The fabric is this one designed by Deena Rutter.  The other fabrics in this range might end up in my stash very soon.

Oh the poor snail.  He really didn't work.  I used a bit of vintage green fabric for the body but it just didn't sit right.  I think it was too thick.  At least he's got a little bit of character!

I think I need to rethink this pattern too.  This poor bunny is going to find it hard to get pants to fit.
I love this bird softie.  Took a few tries with scrap fabric to get it the way I wanted but it's one I will make again.

Can't go wrong with an elephant.  The fabric on the ears is one of my mums and adds a different texture to the softie.

I think an owl softie would have worked better with this fabric but the elephant is still cute.
Now time to make some baby boy sets.  I just need to source the right fabric, or perhaps I should look through my stash first.
