My sister-in-law's baby shower is today in Atlanta. Unfortunately, we had to miss it because we are on a plane back to Taipei. Even though we couldn't be there in person, Gioia and I put together a little present basket. Two of the handmade items in the basket are pictured here: a little Waldorf baby from this book and a patchwork ball made from Tiny Happy's tutorial.
Both the ball and the dolly jingle a little bit; they have tiny bells embedded inside. Gioia actually helped to make the ball. She pushed the thread cutting button on the machine after every row was sewn. It was challenging for her to wait until the right moment to push the button, but she did well.
Sorry we couldn't be at your shower, Mary Beth! We cannot wait to meet our new nephew/ cousin.
