Handmade/Homemade Challenge: Baby Shower

This is gift #3 in the handmade/homemade challenge that I am embarking on for 2010.
You can see gift #1 here, and gift #2 here.
. . .
This gift was for my great friend, Julie who is expecting twins in T-minus 6 weeks from now. I only got a photo of one of the gifts (modeled by my lovely 5 day old neighbor) but I assure you there were two of these. One for each babe.
. . .
Inspiration struck the day before her baby shower (nothing like the last minute) when I was browsing my local fabric store and came across this book. I knew what had to be done. I got the fabric, I got the book, and I started sewing.

I only finished one (green and white dots) before heading to the shower.

Then I think I broke my sewing machine (still undecided) and had to borrow my mom's machine to finish the second one.

I can't wait to try out some other projects from the book.
