Babies Everywhere

We've got a baby explosion among our friends and I've been making lots of baby gifts lately. All my little handmade treats don't always make it on the blog because usually I run out of time to take pictures before heading to a baby shower or the post office. But these little sets got their photoshoot! Each set is going to a different friend, one for a baby boy and one for a baby girl. And I love these flannels -what a great find at Joanns.

The gingham on the back really makes them. I never think to use gingham but it can be adorable in a sweet vintage way when paired with the right patterns; these seem to do the gingham justice.

His and Hers

My inspiration for the blankets was here 
and burp cloths are a tried and true baby gift for me.

Bundled up for their postal trip...

with some handmade cards because I can't seem to help myself.

And of course they got love labels 
(Want your own? I love MommieMadeIt on etsy!) 

And I must say, I'm pretty pleased with how the corners turned out 
with the 3-step zigzag stitching all around.

  1. Very cute. They will cherish them, Kari. I bought the same girlie print in a fleece to make a spring blanket for R's crib. Should have bought the flannel in gingham...just bought plain old pink-oh well. Looking forward to being creative-when I get a chance this week!

  2. Adorable! They look so well made!

  3. Thanks so much for leaving the sweet comment on my blog regarding my monster applique! I am so glad you did, as it prompted me to visit your blog. I have had a terrific time admiring your many terrific projects!
