Ruby’s Blessing Day

November 30th Ruby was blessed in church by her dad and various family members that were able to make it.

While my mom was here to help with Ruby as a newborn, she made this beautiful blessing dress for her! I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like and then stood in the aisle of JoAnn’s for like an hour because they didn’t have the white-on-white kind of print I was imagining in my head!

After some phone Google searching, I decided lace over satin for the bottom would look cute and we got some lace for the sleeves and headband, too.  We put a scallop-trimmed ribbon over a plain satin ribbon for the “belt” part of the dress and then i hand sewed on  three little flowers I found in the button aisle.  I love how it turned out!

I took apart a store bought headband so I could add lace and add another little flower on it to match the dress.Blessing Day Headband with lace and tulle and satin

Perfect match!Blessing Dress Close Up

And here is our little princess all dressed up in it!  It was a bit big on her since she only gained like 1 1/2 lbs instead of 3 or 4 lbs like she needed to to actually fit in it ;)Ruby in her Blessing DressRuby Close up 2Ruby Close UpRuby Happy on Blessing Day My Mom also crocheted me this blanket with a cute scalloped edge on it for her blessing day.
