The Best Gifts Are Handmade
If there is one thing more fun than giving a gift, it’s giving a handmade gift! I know in this day and age, it is much quicker to run up to Wally World, grab something off the shelf, speed through the check out and throw it in a gift bag. But I like to hope that there are others out there, like myself, that appreciate the time, effort and love put into handmade items.
I’ve seen several different nursing covers out there in babyland, however I decided they were all just a little too plain for my taste. I love ruffles, I love frills, I love buttons! So I set out to make Shea’s little Butterbean something unique: a nursing cover that fits the bill for all the practical purposes, yet with a good dousing of hand-crafted charm.
A delicate polka-dotted ruffle lines the hem of the cover, while a bright hand-stitched zinnia dances in the corner. Each petal was hand-cut and a load of little buttons brighten up the flower’s center. Perfect!
I can’t wait to meet Miss Butterbean. Ok, I guess I have to stop calling her that. She actually has a name now – Colleen. Hmmm… Colleen the Butterbean. I like the sound of that.
Best wishes to the happy family!
