Welcoming Baby Grayson

Another baby shower at church means more fun stitching!!! Again, thanks to great friends who shop with me I got to create several fun things to coordinate with baby Grayson's bedding set.
First, Cherri and Elaine gave a name banner (using the Frayed Block Letters from Hang To Dry):
I picked the fabrics to coordinate with the Hayley Nursery Bedding that Maggie registered for at Pottery Barn Kids:
I love the color palette! I spent a lot of time zooming in on these fabrics and then going through my stash to find as close as a match as possible. I knew I had a sage green with dots, a sage gingham, yellow with dots, and blue floral. I used the brown pin dot to tie the letters together since it's used throughout the bedding as the piping. The only fabric I bought for the project was this pink (because it was so pretty!)
Michelle requested an owl burp cloth inspired by the owl on the pillow sham:
After looking at all the owls on my pinterest board we settled on this owl from Applique Market and used the blue/purple fabrics from the banner. I used Miss Kitty from 8 Claws and a Paw to add her name.
For my gift I wanted to use a little bird that coordinated as much as possible. I love this birdie from GG Designs, and I'm so glad I finally had an excuse to get it! :)
I wanted to match the green/pink bird pictured above, but I was limited by my ribbon stash, so I went with the lighter pink fabric from the banner instead of hot pink. I used Tilly from 8 Claws and a Paw to add "Graysie" which will be her nickname.
For the bib I decided to reverse the fabrics, just to be different. :)
And finally, grandmother-to-be Martha bought these sweet, TINY bloomers for me to monogram. I used Embird Alphabet #38:

This is great!! My new granddaughter has this same bedding in her room, so I want to order the very same stuff for her. Her name is Maya. That's the birp cloth (2-one owl and one bird) plus bib. And if you have any other baby idea, let me know. She already has her name on the wall. Anxious to hear from you...Love you, Linda
