I wish I would have made one when I was pregnant with my last child. Now the "factory is closed" and I won't get the chance
I saw a beautiful one on etsy with the best color combo, it actually inspired my daughter's colors for her first birthday theme (aqua and coral)
Yep. This is the same technique mentioned by Tinkerbell. Isn't it frustrating when you see such adorable things when it's too late? I feel the same way about the bows I made for my little girls.
