8 Baby Gifts to Sew


When someone I know has a new baby I love making a baby gift to give them. I often like to pair my handmade gift with something super practical, like diapers, but I love adding something handmade by me. 

Bee Kind T-Shirt Design (+4 More Bee Designs)

One of my favorite shirts that I have ever made for myself was a Be Kind shirt. I really liked the design I created and wore it all the time in the fall and winter (it was a long sleeved t-shirt), and I liked the message too. Lately I have been seeing a lot of "Be Kind" type shirt designs, online, in social media ads, etc. One design that I have seen quite a bit is some version of Be Kind where the "BE" is replaced with a "BEE". 

Crocheted Market Bag

A week or so ago I shared a pattern for a crocheted water bottle holder using a stitch that was alternating rounds of v-stitch and double crochet stitches worked in the chain spaces kind of like a granny stitch. I have had a market bag on my to-do list for quite a while and after I made the water bottle carrier I thought that stitch would work really well for a market bag too. So I decided to make one!

Wood Burned Coasters

This project is one that has been on my to-do list for a long time. Well, maybe not this exact project but I have wanted to make a wood burned project for at least the past year. I just couldn't make up my mind exactly what I wanted to make and what I wanted it to look like.

Father's Day is less than a week away now and I realized I have yet to do any Father's Day themed projects or gift ideas. I wanted to come up with something that could be made really fast, in case there is anyone else like me who waited until the last minute.

Crocheted Freezer Pop Holders- 2 Styles

Every summer my kids love to eat Otter Pops (or other similar freezer pops), and every summer I think about making some little crocheted holders to keep their hands from getting super cold, and every summer I don't get around to it. I usually end up just wrapping paper towels around the popsicle so they have something to hold onto, or just let them have cold hands.

Do you have a stack of outgrown or worn out jeans? I have a few garbage bags full of outgrown clothes sitting in my laundry room waiting to take to a thrift store, but they have been closed and not accepting donations for the last few months. Although if I am being honest it usually takes me a few months to get donations out of my house even when everything is open.
