A while back I made aprons for a wedding reception for my friends daughter. Well today I was able to attend her baby shower :-) She has such sweet new baby girl! I got to make some fun baby gifts that I have wanted to try for a while.
Her little girls room colors are Hot pink, black and white so that is the theme I went with :-)
I had some leftover Onesies from a previous baby shower gift project so I decided make a Faux Pearls Onesie. I don't need to tell you how I made it because there is already great tutorial at The Crafted Sparrow.
To match the cute Onesie I made a cute Tutu :-)
This was so simple to make I could not believe it!
You can find the tutorial for this at Skip to my Lou.
Instead of using my leg I did mine on a paper towel roll and I also used a ribbon instead of the stretchy cord. Although for my 3 year old I think I will do the stretchy cord. I also made the flower with a all three of the mesh colors and the ribbon together. A great flower making tutorial is here at My Sparkle. I also made another flower hair clip. So here is what the whole outfit looks like together :-) It is so much cuter in person too!
The next project I did was a Waldorf inspired teething ring gnome doll. I have been wanting to make something like this to sale in my Etsy shop so I was excited to finally try one out.
I saw this tutorial at Craftster. I liked how simple this doll was. And since I decided to make this yesterday I thought this would be a pretty simple one to make. Here is how I made mine. I followed her tutorial pretty much the same, but I added ribbons to the hands and feet and connected my wood teething ring to one of the hands. Instead of using watch cloths I used a hand towel so that it would be a little bit bigger. Instead of felt I used a cute black and white fabric, but because it was a thinner fabric it did not want to stand up so I had to put stuffing in the hat.
I don't think mine looks like a gnome. It looks more like a clown or a wizard, but I think it turned out cute.
