One of my very best friends is pregnant for the first time and her shower was on New Year's Day. Of course, I had to share what I made her for a gift. I think that now that I have been making everyone's gifts for Christmas, I am starting to not even be able to visualize giving people a purchased gift. I gave her this matching set with animal prints. She doesn't know what she is having, so when I went to the store to choose material, I couldn't decide what didn't look either boyish or girlish (my bff doesn't know what she is having.), and ended up choosing the animal prints since it seems to go either way.
I used purchase terry cloth for the backs of these, and even made an extra set of them to open up my very first Etsy shop. Please visit my shop here. I plan to eventually figure out how to put that in my sidebar, but hey, I haven't gotten that far yet!
Then, I made her a matching diaper wipe case. I think it's so cute for something that we all have to carry around. I did a coat of Mod Podge on the whole outside of it, because I thought that the flannel would pick up too much dirt without it.
Oh, and then the most difficult thing that I made were these adorable booties that I found here. I found these to be very difficult to make because of the bulk of the soles of the shoes. In future versions, I think that I will not put the double layer of felt that it recommends to put in the middle.
So there it is, another baby gift. I'm not sure why so many people that I know are having babies right now, but hey, I'm just glad that I have found a way to make nice, useful and cute gifts!
