An Inspired Weekend

This weekend there was an Expectant Mom and Baby Convention at the Riocenter. They sold everything from expensive imported American toys to linens they embroidered with your child’s name while you waited. My favorite items were  these pillows.

Here was the gender neutral vintage bird theme:

I’m not always a fan of applique but I really liked these little brown birds. They also had a cute boy’s theme with a lighthouse theme. I couldn’t get a pic because a very pregnant mom was in deep conversation with the salesman, but it was a simple technique. They made the lighthouse body in a solid light blue fabric and stitched the slanting stripes in long red basting stitches. They added a dark blue base and top, properly shaped, and used satin stitching with yellow thread for the light. Here was my favorite girl theme. Considering the princess theme had the crowd I doubt this one will be the best seller.
