Jamie, a dear friend of mine from High School, is about to have her second baby girl (in like six days!) She will be named Cora. Pretty name, right? Jamie emailed me recently asking if I would make a couple of things for her new baby in exchange for some jewelery from her shop. I love trades!
The first item Jamie requested was an infant seat canopy. I don't know who thought up this idea but it is brilliant! If I have another baby I will definitely be making one of these. It will protect the baby from wind and sun and hopefully crazy old ladies at Walmart that think it is okay to touch your newborn.
Jamie left the fabric choice up to me. I am such a sucker for polka dots. And yellow.
Her only requests were a couple of rosettes on the cover and bows on the straps.
I had never made fabric bows before, I really like how they turned out. It would be cute as a clip for a little girl too.
Jamie also requested some burp cloths. I used large scraps for the front and terry cloth for the back.
Hopefully she doesn't mind that they are not a matching set!
And because I thought the soon to be big sister needed something fun too... a little dress for Siena who is almost two years old (I hope it fits!!).
I narrowed down my jewelery choices to two different items and told her to surprise me. I can't wait to see what she sends. Thanks Jamie!
