Baby Gifts

Thank you so much for all the comments on my Winter Blues post and also for sharing all the things you do to help make winter more cheery!

I've been working on new baby gifts this week and I finally finished the little stuffed lamb. She's been through a lot--poking, stuffing, so many ripped out stitches, but all has been forgiven. ;0)


I added a pink bow and flower around her neck.


Look at that little face!


For the other gifts, I got out my 2000 Baby issue of Martha Stewart. She shows how to draw a small pattern on onesies, washcloths, sock and bibs and embroider the pattern with french knots, very close together.


I embroidered a pink baby rattle on a onesie.


I added pink pacifier buttons to pink little slippers.


Also included will be a pair of pink pants, burp cloths, and baby mitts. I bought these things first and then found the matching embroidery floss.


Thanks for looking at my baby gifts! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Pattern can be found here.

Amy, I didn't name her because then I would have never been able to give her away! :0) I'm planning on making another one to keep though!

Hi Kelli, Love your sweet lamb and the other adorable baby gifts.

smilnsigh said...

Oh you are sooooooo creative! I love it.

And you are on a Mac tooooo! I still call mine, the 'Flower Mac' because that's what it was called. The 'works' are in the base {the pot} and the screen monitor {the flower} sort of 'floats' on the arm {stem}. I love it!

I don't think they make this particular look anymore. But I love my "iMac Flower." So happy to know we are both Mac people. :-)

Isn't that funny...I've kept and carefully guarded the same Martha Stewart magazine. I'm going to a shower for a baby girl this weekend and was wondering what to do for a gift. You've just given me some great ideas!

Everything you made is absolutely beautiful :)
