Kember's baby shower gifts


First, I want to thank my blogger buddies for your well wishes.
I am about 60% back to normal and hoping to be 100% soon.

And... thanks to "Mr. Fisherman", my sweet hubby, for letting everyone know I was a bit "under the weather". Although it was very sweet of him to post for me, I became a little concerned  he would start entertaining you with fishing, hunting or
some sort of auto part stories....
 I thought I better get back in the swing of things VERY quickly!

Now that the baby shower is over, I thought I would share my finished projects.
(I did not make any of the onsies or pants - just embroidered on them).

We all know what little boys are made of, right?
Of course we do - snakes and snails....


And of course sports...
Grandpa's fishing buddy shirt...


Basketball....
A long-sleeved onsie with basketball hoop and initials, blue jeans and a matching burp.


Or maybe baseball....


I just love this baseball fabric.


For the matching burps I cut the fabric in a "peanut" shape and used terrycloth
for the embroidered side.
Very easy project.


A few more outfits....


I  thought this little tow truck was cute and just wanted to incorporated his name into the design.




Again, just used terrycloth for the bib and a soft denim for the back.


Zippered pouch for the baby wipes


How simple this was to put together.
I found the hooded towel at Target, the washcloths and the cute little blue duck
 at Wal-Mart.


Okay, THIS ONE I will have to explain.....
You see.... Kember is named after his Daddy's favorite gun manufacturer, his sister, Oakleigh, was named after the sunglasses. The spelling was changed on both - from Oakley to Oakleigh and Kimber to Kember.


Here is the basket before wrapping.
I also included a baby blanket, baby powder, baby wash and a football.


All wrapped and ready to go.


Of course the package could not go out without something in it for Miss Oakleigh...
A backpack, coloring book, stickers, I'm a Big Sister book and a "big sister" tee shirt.


Whew! I think I am done for now.
If you want something more girly, check out Oalkeigh's basket here.
