As the summer approaches, the season of short wearing is approaching. Not as rapidly as I thought, but having a true winter was nice as well. In Austin, we never had 4 true seasons so it was nice seeing snow, and not having to go out in it. 🙂
September is a crazy month for birthdays! Two of my sisters have their birthdays, my sister in law has her birthday, and my cousin’s wife does too. Well a lot more family members do as well,but these are the ones that I try to make gifts for. In our family, we don’t really give birthday gifts to each other officially, so when I have something that I think someone will like, it is fun to make and give. Since it really is a surprise especially since it isn’t expected.
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.
So yesterday, I posted HERE about my fail with cutting the stretch wrong on some fabric. I didn’t want to throw it away and waste it so I came up with another fun idea of what do to with it, make bow ties!
So far for my baby shower gifts that I am trying to put together in advanced, I have made Burp cloths (tutorial#1 & tutorial#2), Baby Girl Headbands with Bows (Tutorial), Bow pinsÂ (Tutorial), and now for the boy baskets, I wanted to make some cute little boy hats or beanies. Below is my tutorial.
