Baby Shower gifts

I already posted the self-binding receiving blanket I made for my sister-in-law.  Here are a couple other things I made her as well:

Tie Onesie - There are 2 patterns I like here and here. . . one is smaller and works better on infant onesies and the other is a bit bigger and works best on 12month + sizes in my experience.  I don't remember which one I used this time since I just have the patterns cut out and use them over and over.
Denim Baby Book - more info here.  I love the piping added around the edges - it gives it a softer look.  And Kari had given me some of my brother's old shirts to re-purpose, so I used them in the applique shapes of the book.  How fun is that - the baby will have a book made from his dad's old clothes!


  1. These turned out fantastic! Just made my first batch of burp cloths yesterday and the sewing baby stuff bug has hit big, adding these to my to-do list!

  2. Adorable!!! Thanks for all the links!

  3. Thank you so much, Serena! I love them both! You really did an awesome job :) It's so cool to see parts of Nathan's shirts in the book.

    P.S. I linked my baby shower post to your projects:


  4. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
