A Few Sewn Gifts for Baby

Here are some goodies that my sister, Mandy, and I made for our cousin Shelby's baby, Maya. We waited until the last minute to make them, but I think they turned out pretty well. I really think the hardest part is picking out the fabrics. Close-ups are after the main picture.
As you can see, we made everything coordinating.


This is the onesie I did. I cut it out with my Cricut, and then zig-zagged stitched around the edges. I accidentally kinked the handle of the rattle, but a piece of ribbon stitched over it fixed a bit.


This is the bag. You can probably tell that this is the Hip Mama bag, again. We used interfacing this time, and it was much stiffer. Something odd though is that there was no interfacing on the back side, so next time, I will definitely add this in.


Here are two burp clothes I made, using extra fabric, ribbon, and cloth diapers. I then folded them up and tied them together with a ribbon. I got the pattern from here:


Then, I had to make a coordinating card to go with everything. At this point, it was about 3:00 in the morning, so I just pulled out the cuttlebug for the tag and some inking around the edges. The tag says, "For you with love."


All in all, I think it was a success, or at least fun to make at any rate.

So cute! I love that stripey fabric. Where did you find it?
