Baby Boy Baseball Set

I made this set for my brother's baby boy that's on the way. I also included the baseball bib from the previous post that was featured in Utah Baby Guide.

For the tie onesie - I used the pattern from Trey and Lucy (pattern located on her side bar). It is already set perfectly for a newborn size, so I didn't have to tweak the length or anything.

For the baseball toy, I made it a crinkle toy . . . here are a few pictures of the process to make it:
For the top, I traced around a bowl for the circle and used embroidery floss to hand stitch the baseball stitches.
For the bottom layer, I traced around the bowl again on the printed fabric, and I cut and folded ribbon and stitched them to the right side of the fabric
I took an empty baby wipe package and traced 2 circle pieces from the bowl (but I scrunched the plastic up a bit before cutting so that it was bulky and would make better crinkle noises)Then I put all 3 layers together (fabric right sides together and the plastic crinkle wrap was on top.) Sew all the way around - leaving a couple inches unsewn so that you can turn it right side out. Then topstitch the finished edges to seal the opening and finish off the baseball.
