Baby Shower Gift

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had been working on a sewing project, but had to wait to show you what I was making.  Well, the wait is over!

I've got 2 sister-in-laws that are expecting baby girls in the next few months.  This is the first for both of them, so I wanted to make something fun for their baby showers.

One of them had her baby shower last weekend, and here's what I made for her.

The baby's name is going to be Nadia, so I appliqued an 'N' on a onesie.  Making appliqued onesies has been on my 'To Do List' for years, and I don't know why I waited so long to give it a try.  Easiest gift ever, and it turned out adorable too! 

The next part of my gift was these handmade baby shoes.  I am SO in love with these!!  The pattern can be purchased HERE from Make It and Love It.

And the final part of my gift was these cute baby bows.  I wanted the bows to match the fabric on the onesie & shoes, and found some ribbon in my stash that matched perfectly.  Love it when that happens! (the tutorial I used for the bows can be found HERE).

I wasn't able to attend the baby shower, but was told that my gift was a big hit!! 

I've got 2 more sets to show you in the coming weeks.  One set got sent off to a friend in the mail yesterday (she's expecting her baby girl at the end of this month), and the last one will be given to my other sister-in-law in a few weeks.  Since I don't want to spoil the surprise, I'll wait until they've received their gifts before I share them on here!

they look beautiful!

i just tackled a project similar to this yesterday - but did a onsie for every single month using applique! can't show it yet because the shower isn't until the end of march...but it is cute! her theme is cowgirl so each onsie has a horse shoe and a number on it!

i have that same pattern for shoes! were they difficult? i have had for well over a year but have been afraid to try - that and i haven't had a little girl to make them for?!

Everything turned out so cute! I would love to try that baby shoes pattern... do you think it would be okay for a beginning sewer?
