Tis the season of Babies! Baby girls, seemingly! Yay!
Two friends recently had little itty bitties, and I made them some darling prezzies!
First, for Sweet Baby P, I made a Hooded Towel and Washcloth Set, using this tutorial from The Purl Bee:
I made the set before I decided to take up residence in CraftBlogVille, so unfortunately, no pictures. But trust, they came out sooo soso cute, if I do say so. It's a really great tutorial.
Then for Little Baby Q I made a couple of things. I had no time to get to the store for more terry cloth (hear my wallet sighing in relief?), so I just whipped up a few things from what I had on hand.
Two darling little headbands!
To make these I used Foldover Elastic [purchased from eBay seller Hobovian - She sells packs of 10 one-yard cuts in assorted colors on the cheap! Found her store through another blogger, but I can't remember who!], my trusty glue gun, one crystal-y button, and flowers stolen off of Emmys high chair. She rips them off all the time anyway, so I think she's actually glad to see them gone. ;)
Aren't they FUN? Foldover Elastic is bomb. I hope Baby Q likes them!
And since these took like 10 minutes to make, the craft itch was not sufficienly scratched. So I also made this sweet onesie:
I just realized that I took these pics before I actually sewed the little buttons on. Ha.
Pretty sweet though, no? Felt buttons!
I need to make Emmy some of those headbands. They are SO easy and SO fast, and the possibilities are ennnnndless.
So happy, happy birth, Baby P and Baby Q! Me and Emmylou can't wait to meet you!
ETA: You can purchase the felt heart buttons here. I also saw ONE package of them at JoAnn last weekend. And, I also found some on eBay a few weeks ago, which I bought on the cheap and sent to my first commenter, Sue. (They're on their way to you Sue!)
