I LOVE making gifts
I really REALLY do
just thinking of the recipient and what they may like
gets my heart all in a flutter
dreaming up the little finishing details (the VERY best bit in my opinion)
is utter heaven to me ..... it makes me so HaPpY
This little baby bib was made for a beautiful friend
who I've yet to meet in 'real life'
we both hope that that will change one day
It is the happiest of gifts
as this little bib means that her dream has come true
a much longed for baby girl is on the way
I'm so delighted for her and husband
such HaPpy HaPpY news
Dolce bambino ❤ Sweet baby ❤
It was also my make for round four of the
Sweetly Stitched Sew~a~long on Instagram
(you can read more about it here if you wish)
and it won me a super duper prize from Amy!
I feel spoiled rotten ..... what a gorgeous collection of treats.
and now for the 'BIG boo boo' bit .....
I'm actually really embarrassed.
I thought "Wouldn't it be nice to make the 'mummy to be' a gift too"
So I did.
I decided to add some embroidered wording on this too
So I used Google translate (don't do it!)
and I ended up calling her a Beautiful (Egyptian) mummy
instead of a Beautiful (mummy) mummy
(now you can see my embarrassment)
I even had 'that' feeling whist stitching it ..... I wish I'd listened to myself
Luckily she saw the funny side and whipped her needle and thread out for adjustments!
I added a cute crochet mouse rattle too
(as I just couldn't resist)
The pattern for it is wonderful and free ..... how lovely x
I shall love you and leave you for now sweet friends
thanks for popping by you really make my day
