Baby Gifts

A bunch of my friends are having babies soon and I've been expanding my repertoire of homemade gifts. The Amy Butler changing pad is still a favorite and the taggy blanket is great, but I wanted variety. My latest is embellishing onesies or shirts for the newborn.
(before, after)
These Gerber kimono-style shirts are great for bringing baby home from the hospital because they don't cover the umbilical cord stub. Onesies are out for a few days and shirts are in. Plus, these have the fold-over mitten cuffs so the baby won't cut himself with his razor-sharp nails.
I added some stitching to the edges of the shirt and I really like how it turned out.
My collection of embroidery floss from middle school is really coming in handy lately!
