Odds and Ends Baby Gift

Posted on January 26, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

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 appliqu├ęd 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.  

I think this is the quickest baby gift I have made in a long time, and it has such a cute charm with those sweet labels.  If you want to see how these are made, check out the tutorial!
