Now that the secret is out, I can tell you all why I am "stocking up" so much for my bro and his wife- They had TWINS! twin baby girls after having 4 boys in a row! They were born on Thursday morning and are so precious!

They kept it a secret and surprised all of their kids when they came to the hospital! Priceless!!
So in continuing to stock up for my SIL's new baby girls, my mom had an idea to make matching baby blankets. We went shopping, spent like two hours picking out two different fabrics, and I did the sewing... {and just to tell you, anything important, and it takes my mom FOREVER. don't even get me started on cards... not that it's a bad thing :) }

Anyways, here is the final product:

Far from perfect, which is why I folded them {strategically} so you wouldn't see my mistakes.

It was a fun project and now I know how to make those blankets... although I think for the expensive fabric, it's cheaper to buy one... hehe :)

I also ruffled some more onesies. This time, I bought plain white ones and did my own thing.

I did them in stylistic pairs for the twins:

And disclaimer- I know that the sewing isn't great but the messy/shabby look is what I actually was going for.

I had even more fun with these onesies than with the last ones. It makes me want to stock up for when I have a baby...eventually :)

I am linking up with these parties:

Wow, sooooo cute! Congratulations, I'm sure that when they get older, your nieces will love having such a cool aunt! I just posted about making homemade organic baby wipes, could come in handy with twins!

Have you ever seen that Kevin James comedy skit about picking cards? I think it's on youtube.. If your mom is anything like mine, it's pretty accurate and hilarious!

Following you!
