Baby Time

 A friend is having her second baby soon, and I made some goodies for it (the gender is a surprise). Since she has now received said gifts I finally get to post this!  A group of us girls all get together for a game night about once a month and we all were to decorate a onesie for baby.  Well, mommy-to-be is a big fan of owls so I knew right away that I wanted to go with an owl theme. I came across a tutorial to sew little felt owl ornaments HERE and adapted the pattern to make a larger stuffed owl toy first.  Then I used the pattern to paint an owl on the onesie using acrylic paint mixed with fabric paint medium. I like how it came out, and so did mommy-to-be!

 I also like to knit hats for new babies so I picked yarns that would go with my color scheme and came up with a little gray, white, and yellow striped double ribbed design. It should fit newborn-3months.

 All the other onesies were cute too but I didn't bring my camera so you'll just have to take my word on it.  I also made a baby face cake to celebrate the little one to come.  It's made of cookies and cream cake in a dome cake pan and frosted with colored butter cream icing.  The little paci in the mouth is my favorite.  (I had to re-do the nose twice and I'm still not a huge fan of it but it worked.  Guess I need more practice on cute baby noses.)  It was yummy and that's what matters most.


  1. This is all DARLING, Kim! You are so very clever. And the "butter cream" frosting has me licking my still-on-South-Beach-Phase-I lips. Editorially speaking, the "you'll just have to take my work on it" was a very funny "Freudian slip" typo!! Additionally, "Guess I need more practice on cute baby noses" has me picturing just the cutest sibling for Hailey ;~)

  2. Skills! Such an amazing baby gift!
