Cute Gift for a Baby BoyPosted: October 25, 2012
A few of my friends are having baby boys in the upcoming months so I’ve been on the hunt for a cute, handmade gift. I found THIS tutorial for some adorable baby cardigans and just had to try them. I used the template on THIS tutorial to make a tie onesie to go underneath the cardigan (I use embroidery thread and hand stitch around the edge of the applique rather than using the sewing machine).
A few notes on the cardigan…it was a lot harder than I prepared myself for, but after I completed one whole cardigan, the second one was much easier. NEITHER of them are anywhere close to perfect. Also, the first time around, I did the cuffs on the sleeves and decided it was a lot of work for minimal impact so I decided to scrap that part on the second one.
I gave one to my friend at her baby shower on Sunday and am sticking this one in the mail for another friend. They both have baby boys due in December. I think these would pair nicely with some khakis or jeans to make a super cute Christmas outfit🙂
(Pssst…baby boy Mac, don’t let your Grandma Brown inspect this too closely. She is a MUCH more talented seamstress than I and she might be completely appalled by my technique.)
