The Baby Layette: Completed!

The Baby Shower was Saturday. I did not even get the little dress started!
I ran out of time. But baby's mamma was quite pleased with
the little layette as it was.
Here are the pieces;

The Baby Layette Part 4: The Sacque

The final piece of my baby layette ~ The Sacque! Made from the softest
vintage pink flannel, vintage lace, hand embroidery and ribbon ties with
two sweet little heart buttons for dainty embellishment!
I hope baby likes it!

Baby Layette Part 3: The Bib!

Not practical, being white and lacy, but just what one needs
to look sweet and cherubic while taking a nap during church!
(Wish the pattern came in my size! ;~P)

The back is made of soft white flannel, sports hand embriodered flowers and vines
and vintage lace!
