This past weekend I had the pleasure of going to a friend’s baby shower, I love shopping off of registries and buying a cute little outfit for the mom to be. This time I was determined to make a special gift, and I decided on embroidered burp cloths. My friend is having a little boy so I wanted to make burp cloths with little neckties on them.
When my friend, Kristi, was pregnant with Zach, her husband, Josh, came up with the cutest idea to have a Calvin and Hobbes themed nursery. Josh grew up loving Calvin and Hobbes and wanted to share that love with their son. They mentioned wanting to look online to see if they could buy Zach his very own Hobbes plush and that’s where I come in! Of course I volunteered to try to make one myself and lucky for me I found a great how to here from instructables! By the way, I love this picture! It’s like Zach and Hobbes are in cahoots over something!
Today I wanted to share a new mommy gift my husband and I made for my sister-in-law Brandi. Before we went to see Brandi, we spent the day cooking to bring her a homemade meal that she, her husband and son could enjoy.
A couple of coworkers recently had a baby and several of us wanted to get something to congratulate them on their babies. One of my girlfriends saw the cutest idea to turn onsies into cupcakes here. We went to Target and bought their Circo brand onsies, which were on Target Cartwheel for an additional 20% off savings! We ended up with 12 onsies and 12 pairs of socks for the gift.
Today’s craft was so much fun! I went to my sister in law’s baby shower this weekend and she absolutely loved my wooden stackable cross that I made earlier this month. I loved seeing all of her other gifts. Right away I noticed a tutu that was gifted to her and investigated. 🙂 I realized it was made out of a simple headband, tulle, and there was absolutely no sewing involved. This shocked me because tutus can be so expensive! Well not anymore! My tutu craft cost LESS than $5.00! It would make the perfect gift for any little girl in your life. 🙂
