Baby Shower Gift Sewing Projects

I am not affiliated with this company. I purchased everything used in these projects myself. My opinion is completely honest no matter how I receive any items mentioned on this blog. 

My good friend is having her 2nd baby.  This time it is a girl.  I opted to be more creative this time and made a few gifts to go along with the items I purchased for the baby shower.  I wanted to share my sewing projects with you.

First, I made a Hello Kitty tag blanket.  I picked the colors pink and brown and then selected 3 ribbons to make the tags and pink and brown minky dimple dot fabric. It must have been in the back of my mind that she registered for brown and pink wall decals for the nursery.  I was so happy it all coordinated nicely. 

I did all of my shopping at Joann's.  I used a pattern idea that I found on Pinterest. The pattern comes from domesticcharm.blogspot.com  I did almost everything stated there except I made the blankie a half yard rectangle instead of a square.  I found this quite easy to sew and I was really happy with how it turned out.  I actually had to tell them that I sewed it! 

Here is a pic of how my tag blanket turned out:

Next, I wanted to make baby outfits for the little fashionista on the way.  I have a dress pattern but that will be a welcome to the world gift since I didn't get it done in time.  I did however find this awesome pattern to make baby circle skirts on Pinterest.  It is from danamadeit.com  I bought 3 fat quarters from the quilting section and some soft colorful elastic that coordinated with all 3 fabrics.  That is it aside from thread.  That is all you need. 

I followed the directions on danamadeit.com and used her printable pattern.  I think the skirts turned out adorable and many at the baby shower commented that they wanted them for themselves.  There is a non-baby pattern and post on the same site so I may try it out for myself and see how it turns out.  For now though, these baby skirts are awesome!
