baby gifts are adorable, no? plus a mini tutorial!

A good friend of mine had a darling baby girl a few months back, and I totally forgot to share what I made her! Just some simple gifts-appliqued onesies, a blanket, and a onesie/skirt combo. I used some new dies for my Go Baby cutter, and they were perfect for this type of project. Easy and quick…the bread and butter of us crafters, eh?

The elephant was a little plain so I spruced her up with a floppy fabric ear and button eye!

It was so easy you could probably do it with one hand tied behind your back….ok alright so that wouldn’t work…hopping on one foot? Whatever physical obstacle you choose…it’s still easy.

1. First I made an ear pattern to fit my elephant-you could print one out to trace, or try drawing your own! Then cut two pieces, and sew around the curved edge, leaving the flat edge open.

2. Clip curves if needed and turn right sides out and press with your iron.

3. Turn in the flat raw edges and press…then sew in place along the flat edge. Floppy elephant ear? Check.

The rest were pretty simple, just added some felt pieces and sewed them down around the edges after ironing them on.

She also asked if I would make her a blanket, and had some fabric already picked out, isn’t it adorable? Love that floral. Just a simple layered flannel blanket, with two rows of pink and green stitching around the outside…different colors just for fun. And cause I ran out of pink thread. 😉

Their family loves dogs so I had to use this fat quarter I’d had sitting around for about a year-I love the pink and aqua with the little brown and white pup! Add some coordinating fabric, ric rac, and eyelet trim to a onesie, and I had myself an outfit I didn’t want to part with. 😉 Luckily at the time I didn’t know what gender I was having, hehe!

Have you made any baby stuff lately? For yourself or a friend/family member?


  1. So cute, I think sewing for friends baby showers has got to be one of my favorite things to do!

  2. wonderful. This is a good idea to give gift. Sewing is really nice to give because you can made on your own design.

  3. WONDERFUL. I am following your blog. I would be happy to see you following mine.

  4. What a lovely gift! A great idea for my next baby gift 🙂

  5. This is completely adorable!! Everything you makes looks perfect!! xx

  6. Very cute.

    I love making baby clothes! They always look adorable and a re so quick to put together!

    These are my most recent set, for a friends baby boy, who just turned up 3 weeks early.

  7. I love making baby gifts too, but I have a couple little gifts in mind for 2 soon-to-be big sisters we know:
    Love the elephant appliqué- the button eye is great idea 🙂

  8. Baby gifts ARE cute, when you make them. Adorable!

  9. I never would have thought of creating a unique gift by just adding appliques to plain old onesies, tshirts or whatever! I’ll definitely be using this idea in the future. Thanks!

  10. So cute!! I love sewing for my friends’children…Here is what I made for one of them:

  11. Omigosh super adorable!!! That elephant looks familiar. 😉

  12. Super cute gift. I love the elephant with the floppy ear. 🙂

  13. Super cute and I love the pink and green stitching on the blanket;)

  14. Baby clothes are adorable! I love the appliques, but I especially love the little outfit with the dog fabric. So cute!
    I’ve been making baby clothes too… my sister-in-law decided to have a baby shower after all. (And I don’t get to help. Stinker!) I’m working on baby boy clothes though, so they aren’t quite this cute. =)

  15. Great gift ideas! I have a LOT of friends that either just had babies, are pregnant, or are just about to have a baby. I’ve been making patchwork baby blankets with minky backing. They are loving them, but each one I make leans me towards having another baby LOL.

  16. I’m 31 weeks pregnant, and nesting at levels of insanity. So have I sewed baby stuff lately? Um…..just a tad. 😉 We don’t find out the gender so that means I make a girl quilt, and a boy quilt. I’ve also made girl and boy pants and need to make little appliqued shirts to go with actually. 🙂 I am also expecting a niece and nephew close to when I’m due so taggies have been made for them. On the list still is a waldorf doll for baby, maybe a taggie for MY baby, and some bunting too. Oh, and I’m finishing up a play mat. See, levels of insanity!

  17. Cute projects! I’m wishing for a Go baby cutter too, but just wondering if the applique fabric will fray? Thanks!

  18. Love it all – but the floppy ear on the elephant is too much cuteness to stand 🙂

  19. I love this idea!! It makes me want to go buy some tiny onesies right now and make some! Okay, I am dying to see your outfits while pregnant. Could you pleeease do an outfit a day post again. I am pregnant too, and I would love to get some inspiration.

  20. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 4 post on Aug. 31, 2012. Thanks again.
