Big Sister, Little Sister

Have I mentioned that I have a lot of friends having babies?  And they are all due at the same time, which means now is the time for baby showers.  A few weeks ago I showed you a diaper cake that I made for the soon-to-be-born Emma Grace.  Well, today I have a shower to attend for another little girl.  I am so excited because both of these little girls will grow up with my son (who hits 6 months this coming week... wow).

I thought of making a diaper cake again but decided to do something a little different.  In this case, the baby will be the second child.  Her older sister is friends with my daughter, so I wanted to do something special for big sister and little sister.  And here is the result...

Matching Shirts, made via freezer paper stenciling of course.  For big sister, a pink shirt with a bird and branch.  (And in case you are wondering, this is the same as the yellow shirt I made my daughter.  I loved it so much that I decided to do the same thing here.)  For baby sister, a onesie with the bird and the Brazilian Portuguese word for baby (part of the family is from Brazil).

I rolled both up and tied them with ribbon and a little note about the recipient.  I also added a little korker barrette for big sister (who has amazingly beautiful curly hair).

Tucked in a box with other baby items and then with a special card (note written after the picture was taken), the present is complete. 

Now I just hope Mom likes it.  I'm off to get dressed for the Baby Shower.  Have a lovely weekend.  I know I will.

Gorgeous. I love the big sister, little sister t-shirts. I bought myself some freezer paper over the weekend so just waiting for a spare moment to get stuck into trying it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi CJ! I just found your blog via 'The Girl Creative'. I noticed you're in VA- - what part? I'm in the Annapolis, MD area. I hardly ever see bloggers from these parts. :) Anyway, I'm in love with your felt food...and everything else on your blog! Stop by and say hello!
