Baby fun

I'm really happy with this Baby Shower gift.

I was sitting on the floor going through ideas-I wanted this little blankie to be personal and perfect. Isn't it wonderful when your brain pops up with the perfect idea?

The parents of this long-awaited baby are two people I love love love. They have matching star tattoos. Now baby boy has a blankie that'll fit right in.

It's just a flannel blanket, nice and big and soft.

Here's a close up of one of the stars (I'll admit it, it's the best one)
Matthew thought it should have something on the edges, so I just zigzagged around the whole thing. I tried to zoom way in to show you, but it's still hard to see.
Then, because the baby bag that I had was really too huge for the present, I made a ball out of some old red jeans. It'll match their living room furniture. A little strange? Yes.

cute blanket! The ball looks huge without something to see it in context with. :)

It is kind of huge, about volleyball sized. :)

Adorable! I love them, and I can't wait 'til I get to hold the little guy while he's wrapped in this blankie! Love you.
