Baby Shower Prep

I am co-hosting a baby shower for my niece.  
She and my nephew are expecting their first baby in the near future.  
Her MIL (my SIL) asked if I would help host the shower.  
I got to plan the games.  
I am excited about that!  
I have to bring some food too. 
 I didn't feel like I was doing very much when the idea hit me.


So I bought a bunch of Onsie's and then the fun part.  
Figuring out what to put on them.  
I did a combination of things.  
I found some great fabric with animals and things on them. 
 I fused Steam-A Seam to the fabric and cut out the animals.  
All they will have to do is choose an animal and a Onsie and press it on.  
I also went to some free coloring book places online and got simple animals from their sites.  
I printed the pages I liked, traced to fusible, and rough cut out the shapes.  
I then fused those to fabric and rough cut out the shapes.  
I will bag them up individually with their picture and 
have those available for those that are a little more adventurous.

Here are some of my favorites

I will have to bring them all home and sew around the designs but that will be fine.  
The mom-to-be is in a PhD program for Neuroscience at the U of M (where I work too). 
 I felt a "special" onsie design coming on.

Yup, one big science nerd over here!  
Welcome to the family sweet little one!

Fun idea! I did one years ago and brought fabric markers and squares printed with the same fish outline. Everyone colored them and then I made a baby quilt.

My mom made a bunch of these for my the grandson born last January. Problem is that he was a big one, as well as every other baby born in our family this past year.
