Girl Gifts

I've been on a gift kick lately! Baby showers, birthdays, bridal showers, graduations.... this time of year is always full of said events, right? I can't always MAKE a gift, but I was able to work it in for two lucky girls:

This fun banner and matching banner card was whipped up in an afternoon for a cousin who is graduating from high school. I hope she finds a spot in her dorm room at Case Western Reserve for it! So this is for the 18 year old...

And for the newborn:
A stroller quilt and two drool bandannas for a Friend's new baby girl to arrive this summer!

I just can't get enough of the drool bandanas! Eli has two and he wears them daily... teething just makes babies drool a lot, so why not stay dry in style? I love the pattern - two bibs whip up in 15 minutes or less! Its from the book Simple Sewing for Baby - if you're a beginner sewist, pick it up, you won't be disappointed!

Oh man, and this yellow Henna Garden fabric is one of my favorites... I had to sneak it into the quilt, and I love the robins egg blue binding... not too girly, but still feminine.

We went from 40F degrees to 90F in about a week, but who cares! Its time for boating, beach, pool, and the zoo!

Love the bunting card! So cute!

We hit up the zoo last week before the heat wave hit -- so glad we did!

the Henna Garden in yellow looks so perfect! I love the banner card...I am definitely going to try that. What a great way to use up tiny scraps!

Very cool... We did the same here weather wise. Wasn't it just crazy.

That card sure is sweet and I love how sunny the quilt is.

Wish it was warm here, but at least I don't feel bad for sewing.

Love these drool catchers. I bought the Simple Sewing for Baby Book whilst I was pregnant and totally forgot these were in there.

Thanks for the inspiration and reminder.
