this past weekend we hosted a baby shower for our friends who are having a sweet little boy in december. i had a great time making decorations, gifts and baked goods too! for the new baby i made a cute kimono wrap shirt & pants. i also made a dress for their daughter, to celebrate her becoming a big sister. (alas, i forgot to take pics)
for the decorations, i made some cream tissue poms, a polka dot paper garland and fabric bunting. i really enjoyed making the bunting…i used a variety of fabrics (polka dots, solids, owl print, etc), cut out triangles, roll hemmed the edges and zig zag stitched them together with bias tape.
i had wanted to make a trio of fruit tarts, but my plums didn’t ripen in time. instead i made a rectangular apple hazelnut tart and cut out a mini paper bunting for it. i also made a pear frangipane tart. it turned out really nicely! all in all, it was a lovely celebration and i think our friends really enjoyed their special day!
