quite possibly the most amazing baby shower invitation ever created

 
 
Remember my friend Holly who helped me put together a vintage toy-themed baby shower for my cousin last year?
Now Holly is one of three members of a party-throwing dream team for my shower this weekend.

Holly handmade these invitations- all 40 of them.

And don't worry.
They're just full-on hand-sewn, dip-dyed fabric books.
They tell the story of me and Chas and include an image of my artwork.

Apparently you can use a printer to print directly onto fabric.
Whhhaa????!

I cried when Holly showed them to me.

The woman never ceases to amaze me.
Sometimes I think she's just pretending to be my friend so I can feel better about myself.

(It's working.)
