Baby Gifts Galore

I have quite a bit of friends and family having babies lately (plus myself!)  So, lots of handmade gifts have been in the works.  There are still 4 babies due in the next few months, so I’m not done yet.  These are what I have given so far.  Many of the embroidered onesies were done months ago, but I had to come up with something else for my cousin who is not finding out the gender.  I saw these blanket stitched onesies on Turkey Feathers Blog and I knew that would be perfect.  I coordinated the colors to her burp cloths (fabric is from Amy Butler’s Belle-Sun Glow)

I found a great way to make the fabric trimmed burp cloths.  (from this great tutorial: boutique baby burp cloths)  I have been making double sets of these-one to give and one to keep for us!  We have plenty of onesies left from our first son, but we really need some new burp cloths!  I love how they are trimmed only at the ends-lots of room in the middle for the messy stuff.  I see so many burp cloths being sold with the fabric sewn right down the middle, but I don’t think that is practical-I haven’t used any like that but my thinking is that it is just going to get yucky and the fabric would keep the birdseye cloth from absorbing.  Maybe those are just for looks, but I want something that can really be used and look pretty too! 

I have also made a nursing cover, and some sun protective blankets (like these: Secure 2 Me Eclipse, I already had some of the solarveil fabric they use).

  2. I especially love your burp cloths, so sweet!

  3. Hi there! I stumbled to your page (through the links of links of links of mine… if that makes sense lol) and love it. I will have to check back often. I’ve wanted to try making those type of burp cloths myself, but cant seem find a good diaper to make them out of. Can I ask what kind you used? Also, how do you make the embroidery on the onsies? is that done by hand? It looks beautiful and anyone would be happy to recieve these gifts. 🙂

  4. I’m not sure how I stumbled upon your site but I am in love with the concept of the blanket stitch on the onesies. I’ve honestly not done much handsewing other than buttons. Is it easy?
