So far I have managed to smock outfits for all of my friends babies, well at least their first born. Now I have friends on their second and third and I can't keep up! I absolutely love working on the outfits. As I am making it I often think about what they will be like, what they will look like, and I spend time praying for them as well. It is time consuming, but I get so much pleasure seeing them in an outfit that I made.
In October, my best friend Kiley had a little girl (Anna Kathryn). Kiley decided to be difficult and not find out what she was having so it made it somewhat difficult to pick a pattern and a plate that was gender neutral. I decided on Maja's Heirlooms Cory's Bubble pattern mainly because the only difference for a boy and girl are the sleeves. Then I chose the Cross Eyed Cricket Fleur De Lis plate because Kiley collects Fleur De Lis and I thought it would be fun to smock it in Christmas colors.
