Showered With Love Baby Shower

It's raining inside! lol Last week a friend and I decorated for the baby shower. This was the shortest time I ever got for me to make stuff for the baby shower. They usually give me at least 3 weeks notice to come up with the decorations. I'm glad I wasn't the one who had to come up with the theme. The theme was "showered with love." We decorated the shower with clouds, raindrops and hearts.

I made the banner using the Stampin'Up! Hearts Collection Framelits. I'm so glad for the framelits. It made cutting so much easier.

We hung the raincoats  on a hook and filled the boots with fresh flowers.

This one was my favourite boot. It was a size 4 boot and it was so cute with the flowers in it.

I made a template for the clouds, trace it onto plastic table cloth and then sewed them together. Then my friend stuffed the clouds with tissue papers. She added Easter grass at the bottom of the clouds to make it look like rain. So clever! I made a template for the raindrops too so my friend can trace it and cut them out.

I used the same cloud template and made a pillow for the expectant mother. The hearts cut from the same heart framelits as the banner. I hand sewed around the hearts to attach them to the pillow. I wanted to do the blanket stitch but totally forgot how to do it. Didn't have a lot of time to figure it out how to do the blanket stitch.

These clouds were made from felts and stuffed with poly fill.  I hand stitch the clouds using embroidery floss.

The expectant mother. Still look pretty at 35 weeks.

  Love her surprise look. lol I crocheted a dress and 3 hats for the baby, the sister and the mother.

A better picture of the dress. i forgot to take a picture of the dress and the hats before I gave it to her.
No card. I'm ashamed. Was too busy making the decorations I totally forgot.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you enjoy looking at the baby shower pictures.
