baby shower invites



i’m helping a friend with some shower details – invites, a few decorations.
the mama doesn’t know what she’s having so we went gender-neutral.
i’ve been dying to try this invite for awhile and it was really pretty simple,
especially when someone else does half the work for me!

we printed the shower info on the right side, printed them 3 up on a sheet of cardstock.
they fit great in a business size envelope.
then my friend made a simple cardboard template for the buggy – an oval with a 1/4 cut out of it.
she cut out all the fabric and i used double stick tape to hold the fabric into place and used my machine to stitch them on.
easy peasy.
the trusty glue gun came to my aid once again for the buttons.
adorable fabric is from heather bailey’s fresh cut collection.
i can’t get enough of that stuff!

    Cute invites for sure. I’m hoping to get some inspiration from you and other “crafty” bloggers on how to decorate my new little home, how to make the best use of small space and creative ways to store things. It’s fun to collect ideas from all of you creative people.

    Did you use a special needle on your machine to go through the paper or are there tips for sewing through paper? I’m excited to try this out, but didn’t want to damage my machine. Thanks!
