A prezzie for a Christening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A friend of ours got her baby boy Christened yesterday and when I received the invite around 3 weeks ago I thought I would make a presant as there is nothing cute out there for a boy......
Well lets just say I would of been better off just going to Target and buying a presant as this took much longer than expected. And as usual I left it till the last minute and everything went wrong.........
First pair of overalls I tried to put the press studs between the legs didn't work out......
Second pair I decided I would do the french seams so off I start sewing made the size O and when I finished they looked more like a size 000 so way to small for this bub.......(Lucky I know 2 people having boys in the next couple of months so I already have a pair of overalls for them)
Third time lucky...........
The Little Explorer Overalls in a size 1 made with material that Vikki off EB got me from SL and sent me!!!!!!Thanks again Vik!!!!!!!


Then I saw a sun hat on Vikki's blog and it was reversible and and looked great so I thought this would go great with the overalls.....So I measured DS2 head as my friends bub is one month younger than Dominic but Dominic was 5 weeks prem so they should of been the same age, anyway my friends bub is bigger than Dominic so I added a little on and made the hat and when finished it didn't even fit Dominic it come out too small I don't know why though.
So I had to remake another hat............. (So now I have a hat and overalls ready to go for a new bub soon)..................
One side of the hat....I think I like this best........

And reversed...........


Then decided I wanted to make a educational worm.....But while I was making it my husband informed me that it looked like a snake so now it is what ever the little boy wants to call it when he gets older (if my sewing is good enought to hold for that long!!!!)I wanted to make it so each section is joined diffently and each section has a differnt 'sound' in it!!!!!!!!!

So thinking it didn't look to hard and shouldn't take too long to make (HA HA HA) I started (using all the fabrics Vikki got me!!!).


The head has a squeeky thing in it so when it is pressed it squeekes.........
The next section is attached by eylets and shoe lace so the boy can learn to tie and this section has a bell in it.....
The next section is attached by clip studs and is made with plain blue cotton and I embroidered on it the boys name, 'Christening' and date and put a picture of a cross. I done this on my embroidery machine.........On the back of this section I embroidered Handmade with Love by Emma!!!!!!!!

The next section is attached with velcro and has cellophane in it for a different sound!!!!!

And the tail is attached by buttons and has another squeeky thing in it......................


And everything all together..........
I hope they like it as I put a lot of effort and TIME into this gift!!!!!!!!
