"He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11
Our friends, Anne (of Hello Newman's), Ashley, and Laurin threw Kitty the cutest "Storybook Themed Baby Shower" while she is currently almost "paper pregnant"! It was to die for adorable, as everyone brought books to start their future little one's library! It's definitely the cutest library book shower I have ever been to! Take a look!
Anne's dining room, adorable paper straws in ball jars, and precious bunting and alphabet banners! They even had thought of book tags that said "This book was given in love by ________" to insert into each children's book cover! Like I said, adorable! I have the most talented and creative friends on the planet. I promise you. They could run pinterest!
With the Storybook theme and not knowing the age or sex of the future little ones, I knew I wanted to do a "Book bag" for them and also use more of my Ikea sewing stash! I couldn't be happier with the results! Neither could Kitty, so it made letting it go that much easier!
The pattern is from the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book that I got over Christmas from Hart and the fabric is Evalena from Ikea that they so graciously sent me! This book bag was all about fabric placement. I had the hardest time settling on which area of the fabric to cut out due to the size of the design, but finally loved that these two friends came down to meet each other and it just so happened to have the perfect spot to embroider "Hurdle".
