Here are some pictures of gifts I made for my friend Shenna's baby shower! I hope you enjoy. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Those are cute!  I'm going to make my friend a diaper cake when we have her shower.   Cheesy   Was it hard to make?

That minkee bunny is so sweet.  What pattern did you use?  I have heard it is hard to sew. 

The applique shirts are great too.

 Thanks so much!  Grin No, the diaper cake wasn't hard to cake. Maybe frustrating, but not really hard. It took less than an hour. Since I didn't have round cake pans to put my spirals of diapers in to hold them up, I had to balance them and then wrap rubberband [or elastic, depending on circumference of the tier.] My boyfriend helped me make it, and I'd definetely recommend an extra set of hands!!!

  The pattern is here:
I didn't really have trouble sewing it, but I did it by hand. I had more trouble cutting the fabric. . . guess I'm not really used to it. Plus, my cats all decided to "help" me/ Wink

Thanks for the comments, guys! I really aprreciate it.

VERY sweet! 

I actually came onto this thread to post my own stuff...onesies, diaper cake, etc.  But thought I would just put my pics here since the items are the same!

The pink and brown polka dot shower:
Diaper Cake:

A wall display behind the cake table, with a vintage horsey, balloons, and a hand-painted onesie with the babies name on it:

My first diaper cake...with baby hair bows on the ribbon on each layer, and a baby sock 'bouquet' on the top of it.  At this shower, we played a game where everyone had to guess the # of diapers used, and whoever won got a prize.  Hooray for baby showers!

I love your onesies!  What do you do to keep the fabric animals from fraying?  I did a something like that and after it was washed it was a mess!  I like the look of not doing a stitch around the animals.  Great job, I am sure they were well loved.

I reeeeeeeeallly love the diaper cake idea. I could have used that a few months ago. Everyone in my family was poppin babies out like candy machines! lol. Well, I will just have to keep this in mind for the future.

P.S. Love your onesies. They are adorable.
