1st Birthday Outfit

When one of my good friends had a baby last year, I asked her what she wanted for a baby gift. This was her 3rd girl and she wasn't really needing much, so I thought it would best to give her a choice.  I was thrilled when she said she wanted a birthday outfit for the baby's first birthday. 

I had several ideas, but decided to go with this fun pendant-banner jumper. 

I used heat and bond to apply the pendants and sewed over the tops with a double stitch. 

The jumper is actually a re-fashion. I made it from a men's shirt I found thrifting. I thought the multi colored stripes were perfect for a birthday. 

I kept the buttons in the back. 

I used all my scraps to make a couple banners and a hat. 

Happy Birthday Myra.
