I can't believe I tied for 3rd place in a contest at Pickle Pie Embroidery Designs. Check out all the winners at www.picklepiedesigns.com/page/hair_pretties_contest_winners.aspx and see. I almost didn't enter but decided at the last minute that I would just for fun. I'm really happy because I love Lisa's designs and Emma did love those shoes!

These are a few of the gifts I've made for new babies. The pacifier clip is a design from http://www.embroiderygarden.com/. The embroidery design on the diaper burp cloth is from http://www.fivestarfonts.com/. These are two of my favorite designers. The bib is an in-the-hoop design from http://www.zippydesignz.com/., another super website to check out if you love to do machine embroidery as much as I do! I loved the bib, and so did the new mom. I used a soft Super Minky in pastel pink for the front and lined it with the brown and pink cotton fabric that matches the other pieces I made for her. It is reversible, however. Wasn't I lucky to find a Minky with stars to continue the theme of bears and stars? I thought so! I also used this Minky for a ribbon blankie and a Binkie Baby (so named by Grandbaby when she took a dolly I made for her to replace her binkie). It's actually the Softie Baby Bunting by Lisa at www.PicklePieDesigns.com. I don't know how many babies have enjoyed those, Lisa. I've lost count of the ones I've made.
