the perfect baby shower gift...

when i was pregnant, i could not wait for the day when i could find out if it was a boy or a girl.  i don't mean in the delivery room, i mean, with the help of modern medicine.  

fortunately for me, my sister-in-law is an experienced sonographer.  she is also kind, generous, and has always made me feel like a part of the family.  love her.  i digress.  so we were able to find out a bit early with both kids (one boy, one girl), then "make sure" each time we were scanned.

brings me to my pet peeve #64:  people who don't want to find out!!  i just don't get it.  :)  

anyway, i was asked recently by a friend to make a baby gift for one such mother.  i found it rather difficult to choose fabric.  so here's my solution:

a reversible pennant bunting with a little matching flannel pillow for fun!

One side has a fun funky, mod boy print. 
the boy side

The girl side is a happy flower print.

Sorry for the horrible lighting in the pillow pic.  I was working late to finish it and had to get it in the mail the next day so it'd get there in time.
