Welcome baby Boston

The impending arrival of a baby boy is a great reason to sit down with the sewing machine and get crafty.  And, I sure have had a good time with this shower gift!
 Baby Boston is due to arrive next month!
 I made this little name tag out of a paper bag I had sitting around from Christmas shopping.  I used pinking sheers to cut out a rectangle and stenciled the baby's name in some chocolate brown paint.
 I also picked up a pack of 5 cloth diapers and embellished them with some ribbon.
The baby's nursery is brown/cream with accents of navy and red.

 I also couldn't resist a couple fun little baby toys and a book.  
 The mother-to-be specifically requested a pillow for the nursery out of an old shower curtain.  Now, THAT'S my kind of a craft.  :)
With some remaining fabric from the pillow project, I made my favorite:  a pennant flag!

 And, well, that's it!

I hope my friend and her husband love the crafty gifts as much as I enjoyed making them!
