Baby shower, in pictures.

Monday, September 24, 2012

I was blessed to be given a beautiful baby shower for Baby L this weekend with some precious family and friends. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, but I'm just so thankful looking through these - not only for all the amazing gifts we received, but mostly for the love and support I felt by all these women I've known for so many years. Baby L is already very loved, and that means the world to me.

Instead of a game, I requested we do a DIY project - so we decorated onesies! We had lots of iron-on fabric prepped and some shapes for inspiration, and we went from there. I wish I had a picture of each one... they turned out adorable. I can't wait to see him wearing them and think of the hands that made them for him. :)

Thank you, sweet friends!

My sweet grandma who doesn't miss an important event in my life... and drove from Ohio by herself to be here. She's amazing.

See the onesies in the back? All made by my amazingly creative friends! :)

  8. What a beautiful shower! I love the applique idea for the onesies - could you tell me more about how you achieved that adorable look? I imagine it has something to do with freezer paper...

    1. Actually, no freezer paper! We used "Steam a Seam" which is a fusible webbing. We prepped the onesies by washing and drying them, and prepped the fabric by doing the same, then cut out squares of fabric and adhered the "steam a seam" to one side. Then when people cut out the shapes they wanted, they just peeled off the backing, placed it on the onesie, and ironed it on.

    1. People loved it! (Not sure what you mean by non-Catholic guests? We aren't Catholic either.) If you'll look in the comments, I've detailed how we made the onesies. :)
