Baby Gift

15 Mar 2010 by admin, 1 Comment »

My niece is expecting a baby in May.  Her baby shower was this past weekend.  My kids wanted to make a special gift — something personal for their soon-to-be second cousin.  After some thought, we came up with this fun idea.  Using fabric markers, they each drew little pictures on some cotton muslin.

I cut the pictures out, applied heat and bond to them, and ironed each on to a onesie.  Then, after carefully stitching around the picture –a unique, one-of-a-kind gift:

I was worried that my gift would seem kind of cheap and homemade.  When one of the older women at the shower exclaimed over them and asked “where I had them made,”  I knew they were ok.  Especially because they were made right in the hearts of my children.
