Baby gifts

October 8, 2007

Here are some baby gifts I recently made.  This little bonnet and booties I made for a new little baby at church, Hazel.nickle-gift.jpgbonnet.jpg

The bonnet was really a lot easier to make than I thought.  I found the button’s at an antique store (who knew that you couldn’t find nice little brown buttons at a craft store?).  The patterns were more from Erika Knight.  I love her stuff because it is so simple yet elegant.

This I made for my cousin.  She just had her first baby, Scarlett.  I call it a nursing blanket.  Someone gave me something similar when Henry was almost a year old so I really didn’t get to take much advantage of it (besides the fact that it wasn’t the most attractive thing in the world.  I plan on making myself a new one for this baby.  It snaps around your neck so you don’t have to try to hold the blanket under your chin while nursing and the baby can’t pull it off of you as easily when he/she gets to that wiggly I want to look around while I eat stage.

Now I am working on finishing the bumper for the cradle (the bumper I started when Henry was about 6 months old and almost out of the cradle) and some fall leaf coasters to keep marks off my furniture.  Three weeks to go until this little kiddo is due so it could be any time.
