Burp Cloths and a Onesie: Handmade Baby Shower Gifts

baby shower gifts

I was invited to a baby shower for a friend this past weekend and found some time beforehand to whip up some handmade gifts for the little man. I have been wanting to try out this burp cloth idea since I saw Gail’s version a while back. I used some organic cotton prefolds and bound the edged with some handmade bias tape. While I was making the burp cloths, I wasn’t sure that I was going to be happy with them, but once they were finished and all wrapped up together, I decided they turned out pretty cute.

I also made one of my signature tie onesies so the little man has a snazzy outfit for this spring/summer. Since sewing is kinda known as my thing among my friends, I try to remember to include something handmade in all my baby gifts. Although sometimes I want to (and do, on occasion,) just have the ease of picking something up from store. Anyone else suffer from the angst/guilt of store-bought vs. handmade? Please tell me I’m not the only one! Also do you have any go-to shower gifts? If so, do share. I am always looking for more quick and easy baby gift ideas.
