Baby Gifts

I just realized I didn’t have a post up yet for today, so I tore myself away from my sewing machine to hop on the computer for a bit.  Progress is actually being made on the puff quilt—yay!  I really should be cleaning my living room, but I decided to sew instead. 

Alex’s friends had a baby about a month ago and we finally got to go meet little Hannah week before last.  I whipped up a few cute outfits to take over as a baby gift.  My favorite baby gifts are definitely clothes—all kids need clothes.  Its super easy to personalize them too.  I usually do at least size six months, since it seems like most people get newborn sized stuff and that way if the baby is big, you don’t have to worry about the clothes being to small.

I made matching shirts for Hannah and her big brother Henry.  I thought they could be cute in pictures or something.  I used freezer paper stenciling and my Cricut to cut out the letters.


Henry got a shirt and some squishy dinosaurs.  Henry’s a funny little guy and was actually scared of the dinosaurs at first, but he warmed up to them after we played with them for a while.


Hannah got three little outfits.  I’ve posted about the one on the right before here, so if you’re curious, you can check them out.  I used my Forever Young Cricut cartridge for the middle one using freezer paper stenciling.
