It was my friend Malia's baby shower this weekend.
I've been working for months getting things together, ever since she told me she was pregnant!
As you can probably tell from her blue mohawk, Malia is not your average person - in a very good way! Baby pastels and frou frou are not her, and are not for her baby. I decided to go with a lime green & monster theme, which I feel worked out well. Most everthing in the left photo I bought, while I made everything in the right photo. Yes, that gray onesie I embroidered says "Redrum". The sock monkey plays a song that scared my cat so bad, he would not come near me for a whole evening!
I wrapped everything in lime green & black to keep the theme going. The onesie at the right I finished embroidering the night before!
All the baby books out there were so smarmy and well, not Malia. In fiddling around with vintage images, I started think more and more about Edward Gorey. He has a drawing for every category I could imagine, and it worked out SO perfectly. I bound the book in some gray/green card stock that looked like and old library book.
