These lovely giraffe rattles were inspired by Lotta Jansdotter, in her book, Simple Sewing For Baby. The baby can hear the gentle rattle of jingle bells inside, easily hold onto it’s trunk, and will LOVE to munch on its ribboned ears. They are sooo easy.. I made a small army!
Ribbon Tag Blanket also inspired by Lotta Jansdotter, in the same book, Simple Sewing For Baby. The blanket is about an 8″ square and easy for Baby to hold on to, and munch on the ribbons. Easy to machine wash too, and get rid of the germs!
Baby shoes inspired by Joanna of Stardust Shoes. She incredibly provides a pattern for free on her blog for home use (only). I have a special friend I intend to gift these adorable shoes to!
These burp cloths were inspired by a favorite blogger, Erin, @ Sutton Grace.
Bibs for him… I used Simplicity 2924, view F for this one. I usually wait until JoAnns is having a sale and buy the patterns for $1. or $1.99. Then I stock up : )! For the closure, I used cute button snaps. They come as a kit, and I used the backing fabric to cover each button snap!
Baby gifts ready to mail. I think I made all this (and a little more) in 2 days.. Sure do get lost in it all when I am having so much fun!!!! Where do the hours go? So….. I say, “Bébé bienvenu”! (Welcome Baby)! And, I hope you enjoy your handmade gifts, my friends!
