I love crafting for new babies, it is one of my favorite things. My friend just had her fourth baby, a boy, so I threw together this gift for her baby shower.
I made the pacifier clips especially for the new babe by request from his mama, but wanted to add a few other handmade things to send along with them. Since this little baby has an older brother, he only needed fun things and not the essentials, which is even better!
Here’s what I made:
1)Baby boy vest, a pattern from my sponsor Hadley Grace Designs. I made one over a year ago and just love it! Cohen has outgrown it though, so he might get a new one soon, too.
2)Pacifier clips, tutorial here
3)Double bow tie, tutorial here
4)Semi-detached tie onesie, tutorial here
5)The card is a die from Lifestyle Crafts new release. It makes a sweet envelope with a card insert and pennant decoration. I picked a paper that looked like denim, I love fabric papers! Promo Alert: You can save 20% with code SEEKATE at lifestylecrafts.com. I punched it out with my Epic 6 letterpress.
Of course, I wrote on the card before sending it.
And that is a very BOY package.
What’s your favorite item to gift a baby boy?
Love it, very cute + personalized!
What a great gift.
omigosh so cute. i’ve REALLY been wanting to make a vest for O, i just think it’d be so cute on him!!
What a perfect gift! :) I just made a self binding plaid flannel blanket for my friend’s son.
I am a new follower. I am actually making a vest for a wedding for my little boy and you have inspired me again! (I had just found your paci tutorial.) I think I am going to sew the vest onto the onesie to keep it from going up into his face as my little guy is still not sitting up well. Thanks again for your wonderful ideas!
