beaver baby (Chandler, do NOT peek!)

There's a new baby coming to the Barnes family.  The 14th great-grandchild.  Addison.  I like to refer to her as the Beaver Baby because she was conceived in Oregon.  Even though she will grow up to be a huge fan of whatever team always says "roll tide", she needs to be proud of where she came from.  I was on a mission to find her some Oregon State attire, but nothing was cute enough for little Miss Addie.  I would have to make my own.

I started with a teeny, tiny, white onesie.
And the perfect sized angry beaver attached to some Heat and Bond.
Oh yeah, I cut the patch off of this hat.
This stuff is so cool, I've never used it before.
Place it on the shirt.
And iron it on.
Oh yes, every southern belle needs a huge flower headband!
We can't wait to meet you little Beaver Baby!
(Chandler, I know you probably couldn't resist!  I'm putting it in the mail today.  Love you guys!)

So are you making those headbands to sell? If so, I'd love to hear the price and see some more colors!
