Handmade QT: Punk Princess Baby Set + Pattern

The picture on top is the card I made for them, please check out crafting blog. Left: Gift Basket made out of a brand new shoe box. Right: Baby Cocoon, Mittens, Washcloths, Beanie with white Rose, layette set. I was invited to a baby shower the other day and I wanted to make my gift extra special for my husband's friend. They're expecting their first baby girl and they love punk princess, not your traditional baby girl colors. The baby shower was indeed was a Tm Burton themed, so they're were lots of skulls, striped black and white balloons, and the cake was a great colors of purple, black, and white. I went shopping and I found this cute layette set, beanie, and booties set for a newborn with pink skulls on it. I love pink, so I decided to make my combination of colors: Hot Pink, Baby Pink, White, and Black.
