Baby Shower

 In the middle of all the rush and holiday cheer we are getting ready for the baby shower of a friend of my oldest daughter.  The theme is Dr. Seuss. So I took a break from my regular scrapbooking and worked on a shower umbrella.  The umbrella itself is covered with rows of white eyelet sewn right onto the umbrella.  Once you have that the umbrella can be used over and over again.  Different flowers and ribbons are added to suit the occasion.  For this shower  I used primary colored  ribbons.  They are tied just under the first row of eyelet and hang down  past the edge of the umbrella.

Then I used my Cricut to cut out a variety of primary colored ovals and circles (2-4 inches in diameter.)  I glued pictures of various Dr. Seuss characters onto each side of the circles, punched holes at the top and tied one onto the end of each of the ribbons.
The last thing was to sew flowers onto the umbrella.  Usually for a bridal shower I would use rose buds or some other smaller flower, but for this baby shower theme, these large bright daisies worked perfectly!
