You all know I live in a house full of dudes. I love them, but LORD KNOWS sometimes I just want some pink, ruffles, and bows in my life.
I finally got my girlie fix with shower gifts for a coworker and one of my dear friends. I searched high and low for the perfect gift ideas. I searched for weeks for the perfect fabrics and embellishments. Visits to Joann's, Hancock's, and Wal-Mart paid off.
I think both of them loved the gifts as much as I enjoyed sewing the gifts.
Here's what I made:
- Ribbon Embellished Onesie: I saw the cute onesies on this site but could not bring myself to pay that price. So, I made my own version.
|Onesie: Wal-Mart, Ribbon: JoAnn's, Button: Wal-Mart|
- Infant Gown and Blanket: I love infant gowns, even for my boys. They are very convenient, especially for those middle of the night, one eye open, diaper changes. My hubby is not the biggest fan but he understands. This creation was inspired by the gown on this site.
Onesie: Wal-Mart, Frabric: Hancock's, Button: Wal-Mart
- Infant Dress and Ruffle Bloomers: While searching for inspiration, I saw this tutorial and couldn't wait to try it out. I made a few modifications but it turned out pretty good to me.
|Fabric: Green - Joann's & Brown -My Stash|
- Infant Pillowcase Dress and Bloomers: I love pillowcase dresses. They are super easy to make and have endless possibilities for cuteness. I went into my stash to see what I could put together.
Fabric: My Stash, Flower: Hobby Lobby
