Robots and Love

This weekend, I got to help celebrate the upcoming birth of a friend's first. She's having a boy and the party was full of Dr. Seuss (Debi did a great job!). I just love making baby stuff. . . each gift I make ends up being just a little bit different then previous gifts, which makes it kind of exciting!

For this round of baby gifts I had found a half yard of Michaell Miller's robot camp fabric on sale at the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay several months ago and needed something that would accent it nicely. I thought that the blue with green circles fabric from Amy Butler's line, Love, would be perfect! I had so much fun putting these things together!
I cut a square and used Heat & Bond to adhere the robot onto the shirt and then blasted it. It's just a simple shirt, but it really made the gift go together (at least I thought so).
For the Bib, I added some scraps from Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane Line. . . similar colors to tie everything together.
The diaper pouch gave me a slight scare, because I forgot to put the elastics in it for the button (which is the very first step. . .grr!), so I used sew-able velcro. I really like the way it turned out. Now I just need to find some labels to put on my creations. . . any thoughts?
Chenile burpies. . . one of each fabric. So soft and snuggly!
And a quick card that I almost forgot to make! Ooops! This card uses Stampin' Up's Gable Green and Bashful Blue inks and paper. The square eyelets are also SU, but Brocade Blue (they were close enough and I was in a hurry!). The stamps and printed paper are also Stampin' Up.

Have a great Tuesday!
