wee things for a wee boy

While we're on the subject of babies, I made this set for Frank's new baby boy, Oliver. The star of the show is Hillary Lang's Wee Bunny, a simple, fun pattern. Wee Bunny's tail is a fabric flower, made from this tutorial. The bib pattern is one I bought as a PDF from an eBay seller. (If you have a baby handy, you can easily measure him/her and figure this one out for yourself. The hardest part is the bias binding, which just takes futzing.) I used this tutorial for the cleverly shaped burp cloth (I had spied some over at Natalie's). The onesie, which was way too small although it's a 6 - 9 months and Oliver is only 4 months, just has an appliquéd rectangle.

I had the chance to meet Oliver a couple of Saturdays ago, and as you can see, he's a little lump of pure sugar.
(Thanks for this one, Natalie.)

It's a wonder I didn't steal him.

Excellent stitching . . . but even cuter baby! What a sweetie-pie! "Oliver" is a name that Lola tossed around for Tuck but it wouldn't work with the last name.

Thank you again for the goodies Carla! Oliver is rather smitten by his bunny! And the burp cloth, well, it gets burped on quite a bit! ;)

I'm so jealous you got to hold Oliver. He is such a cute baby! I love the videos Frank is putting up now! SO makes me want my cousin and his partner to 'have' one soon too!!!
