A friend and I hosted a baby shower for another friend. Her gift also served as a shower decoration. I made the bib, blanket, onesie, and burp cloth. The pants and the shoes on the cake were on clearance at Target.
I didn’t have the time or energy to make edible shoes, so I compromised and used real ones. Even after many reassurances that they were clean and new, my kids were pretty concerned about the shoes getting the cake dirty. I was more concerned about the cake getting the new shoes dirty, but everything worked out just fine.
I found some cute fabric at Hobby Lobby a while back and decided to make the girls skirts with it. They still love matching because they like the attention they get for being twins when they do. People don’t notice as much when they aren’t dressed alike. I wonder when they will grow out of that.

My youngest daughter has a birthday party tomorrow and I wanted to send her with a handmade gift. I found this tutorial online and went to work on my first rag doll.
