Baby Shower Gifts 2012: Take Two

This past Sunday I attended my second baby shower of the year already. I have a third one in a week and a half (which I haven't hardly started crafting for!) and a good handful of other friends who are pregnant and I would love to make a little something for. Whew. But I guess it means a lot of fun crafting time!

So this friend from work is into the whole Punk Rock Princess look. She loves the skulls w/ bows. But I couldn't bring myself to craft/sew anything with skulls for a little girl so I had to do the hot pink/black look.

I ended up finding some cute punk rock girly flannel that didn't have skulls and turned it into a couple of cute burp rags.

I just cut out two matching pieces of the fabric & some batting, matched up wrong sides and sewed around the edges.  I clipped the corners and then turned it inside out.  I also added my handmade just for you tags!

These weren't the only burp cloths she got that were homemade and I decided after seeing the others, I really need to topstitch to give it a nicer finish.

I also was really excited to make some flower headbands. I have a boy but I just love making flower headbands so it's awesome to have a reason to make some.....

 I used some black elastic and sewed the ends together.  I've seen some tutorials with glue but I felt sewing would hold up better.  Then, since I was making two different flowers I used black felt to create a little pocket so I could make my flowers on clips.  Which also will allow them to be switched out and let them still be used once baby grows out of this size headband.

I just love love love how the feather and flower one turned out. I can't wait to make more of them.

And I also made a matching tutu...    I think this is most definitely one of my favorite projects/gifts I've crafted so far!
