This is a little set I made/bought for Zach for his baby shower.
The colors in the picture do this set no justice. The blanket is crocheted using Hula yarn in the color “limeade”. I big big thanks to Joanie for sending that yarn to me. It’s really beautiful and “limey” but the picture doesn’t show that. The hoodie is made with ILTY (I Love This Yarn) worsted and has crayon buttons. Joanie also addicted me to hoodies, with the Knitting Pure and Simple Easy Baby Cardigan. We will henceforth call her “Joanie, the enabler”.
Here’s a pic from Danielle that shows the limeade a little truer – still it’s brighter in person……….
The jeans were just a sweet little pair of jeans we bought for $1.00 at a resale store. The shirt I bought and then applied this iron-on applique to complete the theme……………
The picture is a little blurry but you can see that it was personalized for Zach. It was all wrapped up and I attached a box of crayons to the package. Really cute, if I do say so myself.
I also made him a t-shirt with Legos, Corey’s favorite toy in the world when he was a child – Keith’s favorite toy too. They played with them constantly – couldn’t get enough Legos in our house. Mark and I always heard “my guy” – “your guy”, as in my guy will do this and you have your guy do that – always my guy your guy.
We bought them the Lego set that goes with that picture – it’s called Lego Ville Baby Zoo.
I switched out the little girl’s face and put Zach’s face on the t-shirt. Cute kid!
In honor of Mark, the magician, I had to make a magician t-shirt for Zach also…………..
It says Caution – Magician in Training.
Here’s a pic of the star of the show – we put his name tag on his back with the cute little monkey on his bum…………
And here’s Zach with Uncle Justin and Uncle Keith after the shower………..
Here’s a cupcake tower I made for Zach’s shower – it has his name and little pics of himself in each cupcake. The flowers are from Corey and Danielle’s yard……….
And finally………..these flowers were another centerpiece………..they are also from Corey and Danielle’s yard – beautiful roses…….
