A friend of mine is having their first baby, which they were keeping the gender of the baby a secret until they could tell their families. That left me in a small predicament since the baby shower was coming right up and I wasn't sure which color way to use. Have you seen the new line from Julie Comstock called Odds and Ends? It is PRECIOUS! I thought it was the perfect line to make baby gifts for either a boy or a girl.
There are these really cute "labels" that I thought would be perfect for an autograph changing mat. More on that later, I'm still waiting for these lovely autograph squares to make their way back to me.
I thought the left over labels would make a great bib and burp clothes (which I hear you can never have enough of).
These burp cloths went together so fast! Simple and sweet, perfect for a baby boy or girl!
I picked up a pack of bibs at Ikea that are plain white with these colorful bindings around them. I thought this one picked up the green in the You and Me label perfectly. I have to say this one is my favorite!
Last thing I made was this little outfit. I took a plain onsie and appliquéd this Faith label and made some coordinating pants with ruffles from the Britches and Bloomers pattern. If you have the need to make kids pants, I highly recommend this easy pattern! It's great for beginner sewers with ruffle or cuff bottoms and a elastic waist band.
