I would much rather give a gift that I've put my heart in and hand to, than to go out and purchase something that any number of people could have an identical one to.
I found Angie's registry, and she's decided to do Alexa's room in lavender gingham and butterflies. When going through endless bolts of fabric in Joann's, all the fabric I saw with butterflies on it either looked like "old lady" fabric, or had glitter; neither of which would work, so I found this fabric with multi-colored balls that look like pastel gumballs, and a butterfly applique with coordinating colors,that I think will go perfectly.
It is lined, and has 3 pockets inside for tucking in all the baby necessities, and also has 2 pockets on each end on the outside of the bag, for all those things one needs to get to quickly!
I am anxiously awaiting the day when my Sarah calls to tell Mom that she is "with child", and believe me - my sewing machine will be running non stop! That child will never need anything as far as clothing or diaper bags, changing pads - you name it, this Grammy is going to be making it! Same as with when Dude marries and announces that he's going to be a daddy. There is no greater joy than when one of your own children blesses you with a child.....and now I need to stop all this blabbing, or I'm going to be one huge crying mess!
