When Molly was born, I had the idea to make a pillowcase to take to the hospital (add some spunk to the hospital room, know what I mean?) and then use that pillowcase to make an outfit for her first birthday.
You can see pictures here of Molly's dress.
It was a little more difficult to pick the fabric for my pillowcase when Cooper was born, knowing that boy's outfits are slightly more difficult than a girl's dress.
Here's the best shot of the pillowcase in use.
(Note: best shot of the pillowcase, NOT myself, HAHA)
And here is what I made of it for Cooper's first birthday party.
I'm pretty excited about how it turned out, and love that I was able to keep this tradition for both kids! :)
