The peace sign is close to my family's heart. The PEACE OUTside Campus Foundation was founded in honor of my cousin Lindsey, and I wanted to make something for the new baby that would embody Lindsey's spirit.
I used a clip art shape to create the peace sign, and followed the steps I outlined here in the applique tote bag tutorial. I just love the funky stripe fabric for this sweet onesie!
And note to self - taking decent pictures before mailing gifts. Sorry for the iPhone versions.
Because this precious baby is a girl, I couldn't resist a finishing touch on the back...
Are the butt ruffles not to die for?? I made them before I got my new serger (which I still don't know how to use) so I just zig zagged the edges. I did use my new ruffling foot to make them, though. As a helpful hint, jelly roll strips are the perfect width for making these sweet ruffles, and they're extra great because the strips are so long.
I used this tutorial to learn how to make the ruffles, but it's pretty easy.
This little tag blanket is one of my favorites. I just love all of the bright, crazy colors. Perfect for little baby chomping on!
This has become my go-to baby gift because you can personalize it so easily, it's fun to make, and people seem to love them!
Oh - and I had a little help.
What baby gifts are you giving to people that are a huge hit? Peace out!
