DIY Baby Shower Gift Tutorials

As you can probably see from my recent posts, I have been trying to accumulate an arsenal of baby shower gifts. :) I have been trying to make them in bulk that when a shower comes up, I can just pick out which colors and am good to go. I used to make the burp cloths only,but I felt 3 burp cloths just weren’t enough for one gift. I still have one type of gift I want to try and make for the gifts so I have 3 items per boy or girl gift, but I need to see whether it is worth the work that goes into it.


Here is what I have made so far.


Here are the girl colored burp cloths, I have only made enough for about 6 gifts, but I have enough fronts cut for another 6 or so gifts. I am just waiting for the terry cloth or minky to go on sale so I can finish the other ones I have. Below are the tutorials on how to make these burp cloths.

 Here are the girl head bands that I made. I organized them in sets of 3.

 Then with some of the extra elastic, I made some random bows that can be pinned anywhere.

 Then all of the baby boy hats, well technically girls could wear these too. I just didn’t make any girly colored ones, but in the future I might, who knows.

Here is a random picture of us, since I haven’t been posting many of us. Since we got our new camera, we were able to get one of those remote clickers to take pictures without a dumb timer.

I hope you enjoy these tutorials, and let me know if you have any questions.

    If I don’t have a sewing machine how difficult would it be to sew any of these things by hand???

    I put these on my Pinterest board -I have made the burp cloths. Thanks so much for the pattern. I would like to tell you that this gets pinned over and over as you must know by now. I go to Pinterest and someone has pinned it the night before without a doubt! It says it has been pinned 456 times!

      I’m so glad you like the pattern. Of all of my gifts I give at baby showers, that is the number one gift that people love and thank me for later.
