Here's what I sent redrinnie:



That was the presentation when she opened the package. 

Then...


This was a zebra stuffie (made from a pair of socks) from her pinterest.

There was also a nursing cover-up, which she asked for.

I made it modeled after the Hooter Hider using boning so it stands out from the mama's body leaving a window to see the baby. 

And (not pictured) a onesie with a potato stamp of some carrots on it.

I had my babies (L and E) on Dec. 15th, 5lb5oz, and 5lb 12oz, at 8:43pm and 8:57pm.  They're a delight, and keeping us awake at all hours.  It's practically impossible to do something like post swap pictures, or shower, or eat a meal using two hands! 

And here's what I received from my awesome swap angel, redstar13.  She based her designs on my comment that I was into Anthropologie style!

First up were an assortment of bibs, all in great colors (modeled by the dimmer knob in my kitchen):




See those bits of velcro?  They're designed to help the bib fold up like this:

So it can catch solid foods.  Pretty awesome, huh?

And here's a shot of the backs of the bibs:


Next up is an assortment of Anthro-style onesies.  I cannot wait for L and E to fit into them!!

The whole set:

And individual close-ups:




The fabric she used for the applique in the last one is a fabric I've used in the nursery, so clearly I'm a fan! 

Thanks for being a terrific angel, redstar13!
