Baby Rachel

My aunt jus gave birth to a baby girl last Nov 9th. Yes, it's baby Ivan's sister. Ivan now is a big brother d. Cannot call him baby anymore... lol.. Congratulations to both aunt Christina & Uncle Yeo on your new arrival. So happy for you both.

Too bad again, i couldn't see the baby once she was born. So i decided to make something to send back to Malaysia as a welcome baby gift for my aunt n uncle..

But the process of making the special "something" was really hard. Well, not tat hard actually. lol. I've decided to make them a card. Just that the design part was ermm... a bit tedious.

After sketching some rough ideas out, i finally came up with something.

Apparently according to chinese beliefs, if the baby were to be born after 11am, the father of the baby are not allowed to see the baby. Too bad baby was born 6 mins past 11. Not sure if its because of the 'pig' year or wat. If the father insisted to see the baby, something bad will happen in the future. All these traditional stuff, dont know to believe or not. The chose to believe of course. Poor daddy, have to wait till the baby discharge from hospital only can see. In the mean while, only can see pictures of the baby.

Oh btw, need to intro baby Rachel 1st. She was born on Nov 9th, 11.06am in Putrajaya Hospital, weighing abt 3.4 kg. This is Rachel..

Isn't she 'ugly'? Old people said cannot praise a baby worr.. so must say all the opposite stuff.. :P

I think this was taken on the 1st day when she was born..

Those below were taken on the 1st weeks if i'm not mistaken..

She looks exactly like her brother especially her eyes. Incase anyone of u have nt seen her bro, Ivan b4, here he is.. Look how big boy is him now. Can walk n run d! i feel so old.. :(

Okie kedokie, back to my process.... I bought pink felt and beads to make a baby dress for the card. I oso bought a wire to form a hanger. Oh, here it is. I've done the dress. Made a couple of baby socks and a hat using the same material.

Look how mini is the size of the dress..

A closer shot...

I've used the remainder beads to form the baby's name.. This is the hardest part of all. I need to glue every single beads on to the card.

It's done! This is the front view of the card.

The content of the card.. Using the same beads, i formed the word 'Congrats' and wrote some messages. Hope they'll like it..

The lamo part.. :P

Hope the card wont spoil after reaching Malaysia lar especially the beads.. :)
