I just love going to baby showers, especially when they are for baby girls. I get to make all the things that I love to make and they get to be in cute pinks and browns. **Sigh**
But there is hope for us! We are finding out if we are having a boy or a girl this Friday so keep your fingers crossed! I will love either but after 2 boys, I am due for a girl, right?
Anyways, I got out my sewing machine and starting crafting. Wanna see what I gave Megan over at A Little Knick Knack?
Here we go!
First I made a Faux Chenille Blanket. This is actually the second one that I have made, I made one for my cousin but was so excited to give it to them that I forgot to take pictures.
I used the tutorial over at MADE except I didn't glue my fabric together. One reason was because it is expensive and the other reason was, I really didn't like the idea of gluing something that was going to be so close to your baby. And it really doesn't matter if you don't because the fabric moves while you sew and you are just going to cut it nice and straight anyways. This way, you get less puckering as well!
Isn't it fabulous though? I really love these blankets and they are easy but time consuming!
Then I decided to whip up a changing bag. I love these because one, they are pretty and two it is so nice to cut down on the amount of stuff you have to bring with you. Just throw one in your purse and you are set to go!
It holds about 1-2 diapers and a small package of wipes.
I found this snugly fabric in the remnants bin at JoAnn's and thought that they would make the cutest and softest baby tag toy. Now these just have batting in them, not that crinkly stuff (what is that?) but it is so soft and squishy!
Lastly, I made some fun hair barrettes. (Yes, I did make those buttons if you were wondering.)
These have become my favorite things to make. So fun and easy!
Lastly, I wrapped it up in a nice basket (I give baskets rather then bags because they are cheapers and more versitile for the recepient!)
Add a few cute outfits that I found plus a Johnson's Baby Bar and a bottle of Baby Powder.
I loved making these gift and I hope that Megan loved them too!
