Special Birthday Quilt

Is it lame to blog about something I did 5 months ago?

Probably. Oh, well.


So Sela turned 2 in April, and for months I agonized over the perfect gift. Something to treasure, something sweet, something handmade, and something not emblazoned with Disney princesses. Luckily i remembered this little gem of an idea spotted on The Small Object around Christmas time. Simply type up a letter in Photoshop in the dimensions of your quilt(mine was 1 yard by 2 yards) + follow a few tips from Spoonflower, upload your design, and in 2 weeks you have a sweet note ready to line the inside of a special birthday quilt for a very special birthday girl.



And since I'm the nosiest person I know, and it almost killed me not knowing what Sarah's letter said, I'm including my letter to Sela for any fellow snoops out there:

My Dearest Sela,

As I look at you now, there is only a whisper of the wrinkly newborn face that peered into my own and changed my heart forever. Your chubbies have long since gone and your wobbly legs have grown strong and sure. You are a marvel. An absolute wonder. You are full of every good, wonderful, and lovely thing I have ever known or could have hoped for. You're beautiful, brave, and true; always stubborn, endlessly determined, with a heart open to the whole wide world.

Happy Birthday to you, baby girl.

Misses, wishes, and kisses. Love, Mama

P.S. Always remember: "I carry your heart(I carry it in my heart)"

That is the sweetest thing I've ever seen! I don't know if it is the post partum hormones or what, but that letter had me crying. :) What a sweet gift, she is going to treasure that forever!
