One fish, two fish, pink fish, blue fish…

Recently my daughter and I went to a baby shower for one of her close friends, Alicia.  Alicia is expecting twins sometime at the end of the year.

A girl, pink fish.

And a boy, blue fish.

The theme was Dr. Seuss.

We had Green (deviled)  Eggs, Ham (sandwiches), red (Swedish) fish, along with pasta salad, fresh fruit and cake.

The favors were ice cream scoops and HErSHEy bars.

My daughter found some cute Dr. Seuss bags at a big box store (sorry, no pictures of those) so we filled them with some handmade and store-bought goodies:  Burp cloths, Converse booties, box bags in Seuss fabric, books, toys, baby wipes, outfits, onesies, teething rings, pacifiers and clips, and lots more.

My daughter made “girl” burp cloths and I made “boy” burp cloths using my pattern.

I also sewed box bags using Dr. Seuss fabric.

The groom, ushers, and the rest of the men in Alicia’s wedding wore Converse shoes so I knit Converse booties, one in black and one in pink.  I adapted three different patterns to suit my patience level and ended up doing a duplicate stitch for the toe part.  I did not do laces as IMHO parents of newborns (let alone twins) don’t have time to mess with laces.  I found some star button and sewed them on a white disk of iron-on batting.  As usual, I ran out of time and was knitting in the car on the way to the shower.  But I got them finished in time.

You can see a small part of the bright blue Cat in the Hat box bag behind the booties.  And the blue and pink burp cloths jelly rolled around each other.
