Sewing: Baby Set & Table Runner

Made this baby outfit for our niece's baby, Caitlyn, who was born Feb. 6, 2013. I used an old Stretch & Sew pattern for the top. The pants were made with a wonderful free pattern found at Amber Dusick's site, Make Baby  It was refreshing to find this pants pattern which seems to be correctly sized 0 to 3 months. I don't know why commercial patterns are always sized too large!

Here is the new baby card I made:

Materials used:  Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Nestabilities oval dies, Stampin' Up! stamp and ink.

Below you can see another 10-minute Table Runner I made for a friend's birthday.
