Baby Gift10:56 PM
A friend just had her baby shower for her baby boy.
So first I made some quick pacifier clips.
Two for her, and the other two are for my nephew.
For the other half of her gift I made a sleeper sack.
It doesn't have sleeves or legs to replace a swaddling blanket. I saw something like this somewhere in blogland, but I can't remember. So the idea for a peanut shaped sleep sack isn't my original, and it was before pintrest so I can't find it to give credit and didn't keep track.
But anyway, I made her a newborn sized swaddling sleeper thing out of navy blue knit with the stretch going width wise so the baby can move it's arms and legs but it will keep them snug to help them sleep better when they're brand new.
I tested it out on Ellaria, and she was too big for it, but you get the idea. They stay snug and confined while they sleep but can still adjust. I wish I'd made her some of these when she was a newborn. We were going through all our receiving blankets trying to get one the right size to keep her from pulling her arms out and startling herself awake every few minutes. I guess I'll be better prepared for the next baby.
For this little guy, the navy was pretty plain so I added a hedgehog applique from the lime knit. I'm sad to say the applique turned out kind of crappy looking.
I added the snap closure to prevent the zipper from poking baby's chin and zig-zagged the edges with the contrasting lime thread.
So together here's the little gift.
"Are we done yet mom?"
