a surprise for the surprise

There is a new little pink package that surprised her mommy and daddy recently. Since everybody loves surprises, I decided she needed a car seat quilt... just a little something to keep her cozy on those cooler days.

I loved the paper doll backing fabric so much that I cut one of the girls out and made a quiet dolly for church.

Mommy can also use the mini-quilt for a changing pad or something to put down for a little "floor time." When sweet baby girl grows into a toddler, she can use her blankie for her own dollies, wrapping them tenderly and putting them to bed. If it lasts that long, her mini-quilt can be made into a pillow sham and she can use it on her teenage bed.

Over the years, I hope she knows that it was made with love and prayers for a beautiful childhood.
