I love sewing for new babies, but add pink in the mix and I’m giddy. This weekend I had so much fun sewing for a friend who recently had her first baby girl. First, I made this adorable diaper cover set. Who wouldn’t want to see a cute little baby’s bottom crawling around in these? You can find a free tutorial for them on the Made Everyday site. Dana also has a video that walks you how to assemble them. I also made a matching set of drool bibs made from cotton prints and backed with white terry cloth. You can find a template for the bibs here, but I altered mine a bit.I also made one of my go-to, quick, whole cloth cuddle blankets. The combination of a gray flannel print backed with white minky is so incredibly soft and cozy!One of my favorite things to do is create really great packaging. I bundled up all the items, tied them together with pretty ribbon and attached my signature tags. Instead of wrapping them in a box or using a gift bag where you can’t see the items, I found this really cute, shabby white crate which can be reused for diapers or books in the nursery. I love the finishing detail of a pink, silk hydrangea bud to fill out the basket.
I can’t wait to deliver this sweet gift box to my friend and sneak a peek at her new, precious baby girl.
