Personalized Baby Gift

A few months ago one of my friends asked me to create a baby gift for an upcoming shower. First I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby. I have always loved this fun color palette and there were 4 coordinating prints that I could easily back with pink minky fabric to create burp cloths, coordinating paci clips and an appliqué onesie. The burp cloths and paci clips were created using the attached tutorials from Dana at MADE. The onesie was created by cutting out the letter a from one of the cotton fabrics, adhering it to the pink minky fabric using wonder under and cutting out the pink minky fabric about a quarter inch wider than the first a. I then adhered that onto the onesie with wonder under and stitched it on close to the edges.
While the pics didn't turn out the best, the finished items were actually quite cute in person. I hope the recipient enjoyed them :)

  2. I love these! such fun fabric choices. Right now I am not the most talented with a sewing machine, but I'm still learning. Hopefully, I can whip some of these for my baby boy due in Oct! With my 1st son I received lots of amazing handmade items from my friends and family. It means so much that people take the time to create something with their own two hands! Esp. for sweet babies! I found you via Shwin&Shwin's linky party! Thanks for posting!
