a crafty baby shower- baby bouquets

Over the last couple of months I have been getting some decorations together for my dear friend's baby shower. Since she knows she's having a little boy, I have been making things in blues and yellows. So far, I have made some fabric bunting, a fabric flower corsage for the mum-to-be and lots of little decorations like fabric yo yos and pom poms.

I also discovered those beautiful baby bouquets made from rolled socks, onesies and bibs at another friend's baby shower. My friend's sister-in-law had made two for her following this video on you tube from an episode of Martha Stewart and they just looked gorgeous! They were a little expensive to buy online and it looked easy enough to make so I decided to give it a go.

I went out and bought some singlets, socks, bibs and washcloths along with some floral tape, fake leaves, mini flowers, flower wire, some tissue paper and plastic wrap.

It was a little fiddly to make at first but after awhile it became easier and I just sort of made it up as I went along. I am really happy with how it turned out (if you don't look at it too closely, heh heh) and it sure beats paying $60-$70 for someone else to make it for you.

Here are some pictures of the final result of my baby bouquet:

 I think it's a lovely present that doubles as a table decoration. My friend really liked it so I was happy. 

Have a happy crafty baby shower!
