I have a double baby shower to attend this weekend, and I’ve been working on gifts in my little bit of free time. One mom is expecting a baby girl, so I sewed up this sweet cupcake set for her.
I used Rae’s Itty Bitty Baby Dress pattern for the dress. I love this pattern! The end result always looks so professional.
I sewed up the matching bloomers using my own Newborn Baby Bloomers tutorial.
This mama is planning to use disposable diapers, so I also made a Diaper & Wipes Case for her using Jan Andrea’s tutorial.
It is entirely possible that I tried the dress and bloomers set on Baby Charlie to see how it fits. Shhhh . . . don’t tell on me! It is so adorable on. It’s a tiny bit snug on him at just over 11 pounds–I think it would be a perfect fit on an 7 to 9 pound baby. (I was nice and didn’t take pictures to tease my little guy with when he’s a teenager.)
The other mom who is being honored at this shower reads my blog, so I’ll have to wait until the shower is over to show off her gift. I don’t want to spoil the surprise!

That outfit is simply adorable. I must make one for my little one due in july. I have the same fabric. Infact I have lots of cupcake fabrics. I’ve been making mommy and daughter aprons for my friends. So fun! But I am getting kind of board of the same project over and over. Time to try something new.
So very cute! I would love a gift like this.
My sister and I dressed our younger brother in girls clothes on a regular basis. We so badly wanted a little sister (we have 5 brothers so you can’t blame us!) Now he’s getting married and we DO have some photos of him. Poor guy! 🙂
