Making Stuff: A Baby Shower Activity

by This is Carrie on November 10, 2009

When someone threw out the idea of “making stuff” instead of the traditional games for my girlfriend’s baby shower, you know I was the first on board.
I gathered together bits and bobs, new and old, fabric and trim hoping to inspire some beautiful creations.
The party-goers did not let me down.

With a little help from me at the sewing machine, a load of gorgeous baby onesies, gowns and burpies were produced and no one had to taste baby food or smell mars bar poop.
