So, I finally became a member of the Auntie club in my family. I have the two oldest grandchildren, so all my siblings got to enjoy aunt-hood and uncle-hood before my husband and I ever did. But that came to an end when my sister had a baby girl (YAY baby girls!!!). She was born February 20th and I've finally completed all the items I wanted to make for her (that is, until she's sitting up and I make a high chair/shopping cart cover).

For our family baby shower, I provided the dessert inspired from the book, Hello Cupcake!:

I can't remember the name of the font, but they were made with white chocolate and white nonpareils


Hello little lady bug


Mmmm....oreos

I also made her a little diaper cake:



It's wrapped with pink and purple pre-fold diapers (best burp clothes ever) and adorned with little sock roses


Spoon accents


And topped with a darling pink giraffe wearing ballet slippers

She wanted a diaper bag that her husband would feel comfortable carrying, so this is what I made:

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the inside, but there are a total of 4 pockets, spanning the length of the bag on each side (2 per side) a front pocket under the flap and two outside side pockets.

I had a bunch of material left over of the bag lining, so I made her a nursing cover. Hey look! Baby Dassa is there, under the cover!!!

She's just modeling, not actually feeding Smiley

The last item I made her was my favorite by far:

Dassa likes it!!!


I loved these so much that I made myself one as well


Ben loves it too!
I am in the process of making quite a few more of these to send with my mother-in-law to Haiti. She's a missionary and I figure these would be great for the women of Haiti. They are going to teach in an orphanage, add an addition to the orphanage and help out at a medical clinic that people start waiting in line at 2am for medical attention. I know it's not much, but I know it'll help at least a few women out...and that's good enough for me.

And of course, I didn't make this, but it's only fair to see the baby that inspired all these creations!

I love, love, love those cupcakes!  I need to get that book.  I have seen so many yummy looking creations come out of it.  Smiley

The slings are both awesome also.  Did you use a pattern for these or was it your own doing?  I am wanting to make a non-ring sling like these. 

Excellent job on everything!

AMAZING BABY-CRAFT OVERLOAD!!  Shocked
WOW, I can't decide which is the most exciting item! The ladybugs on the sunflower cupcakes? The blissfully colorful diaper "cake?" Or the subtly awesome bag, nursing cloth, and sling(s)?! They all rock. Completely!!

My friend has a hotsling and I was curious about it so I asked her if I could see it. The design is so amazingly simple, and once I went on the site and saw how the sizing was figured out, I made one myself.

Thanks for the compliments!

GREAT job on EVERYTHING! i love love love love the cupcakes. Your diaper cake is super cute. I've seen some before that are bleh (not on here!) but yours is nice and colorful!  Smiley

You also have some mad sewing skills, I enjoy the bag a lot. Awesome job!  Cheesy

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.
