My cousin just had a sweet baby girl named Vallie! I’m always excited by the arrival of girlies in my family so I can make PINK stuff!
I used a minky polka dot remnant I’d been saving for no occasion in particular to make a bib, and monogrammed and lined it with a fun pink cotton.
To round out the gift, I whipped up a matching diaper burp cloth and onesie.
Now, to get my hands on that sweet baby!
FIVE mommies in our playgroup are expecting their babies during the month of May. For our very full shower, I created a little something for each mommy- a sleeper with each girl baby’s initial and a duckie for the two boy babies- yet unnamed. I tied the sleepers around burp cloths that I made in coordinating fabrics. Simple but fun!
Most of these items were finished well before my (Tori’s) maternity leave, but I wanted to finally get them posted to share them!
First, four birthday gifts for some of Jack’s friends…
A birthday outfit for Callie and her sister Madison
A birthday outfit for Lily
Christopher’s birthday shirt
And finally, a birthday monkey for Sophia
Shoes, for little Natalie
A satin lined Burrito Blankie and matching monogrammed burp cloths for a mommy expecting baby Joy. I was so excited about these burp cloths I wanted to keep them… wanna see them closer?!
A birthday shirt for a special five year-old
Jack’s Halloween shirt (he WOULD NOT) stand still for a good picture! Click here to see other possibilities for Halloween shirt orders… or email us to create your own!
And I don’t think I ever posted a picture of this owl, but I’m thinking it could be a super cute Halloween shirt, in more Hallo-weeny colors, of course!
I’m hoping this nursing cover is going to make feeding Charlie in public places much easier than feeding Jack was! Besides the fact that this time around I’ll also be wrangling a toddler, Jack was always kicking the blanket off, etc.
These covers are reversible, so you can nurse in style depending on your mood, and feature a large pocket with toy (or pacifier, etc.) loop and an adjustable neck. The pocket is either an inside or outside pocket, depending on which way you’re wearing the cover. They also have a piece of boning sewn into them for ventilation and so mama can peek in on the nursing baby. You can see how the front of the fabric “pops” out in the first picture.
This cover is the one I made for myself…
… and this is thes matching burp cloth and wipes case I made with fabric scraps.
Here is a cover I made for a friend to give as a baby shower gift! I appliqued a paw print on the front pocket.
