My Gift for Gracie Love...

Today I am going to a Baby Shower for my dear friend Judi's daughter, Mandie.
She is having her first child, a little girl and they are naming her Gracie Love!
I wanted to make something special for her celebration...

I bought this darling soft fleece blanket at my local T.J. Maxx...with the adorable little horsey on it.... I decided I would try to duplicate the horse and make a matching little soft sculpture for her room.

It is made out of felt that I loosely stuffed and closed with a embroidered buttonhole stitch.
Here is a great link for a buttonhole stitch tutorial... Future Girl.
I was pleased how it turned out.
I made this personalized plaque for her nursery too!
Hope she likes it!I like baby showers...they are such a blessed and happy occasion.
I'm looking forward to a nice afternoon.
Have a wonderful weekend too!

Carrie - Where do I start??? First, the little horse is utterly adorable. She will absolutely love it (said in one of those high pitched love it kind of squeals)! And the plaque...oh man, I need one of those! You are talented my friend. ~Kelly

Carrie, These are the most darling baby gifts! You did such a great job matching the horsey on the blanket and the little plaque with the Scrabble letters is incredible! What a sweet, one-of-a-kind treasure!

Carrie, the mommy to be is going to just adore everything you made! You did such a fabulous job at recreating the little horse. It turned out so cute. I love the eclectic look of the wall plaque too. Gracie is going to be one lucky little girl.
Have a nice weekend and have fun at the shower!
