Throughout the pregnancy, my friend and her husband decided that they didn't want to find out the sex of the baby. I can't say that I have the same willpower, but I'm happy to say they were able to hold out until the big day when they found out they had a new baby girl. I decided to put together some necessities that all parents need for new babies, so I bought a yard of cute butterfly fabric and here's what I came up with:
Washcloths and baby wash for that first (usually not-so-happy bath)...
And pacifiers and a pacifier clip to keep baby from losing the pacifier all over creation (I speak from experience.)
Aside from a few snags that I ran into while sewing (combination of the wrong needle for my fabric and poor quality thread that kept breaking...grr), everything was super easy and fun to make! I'm definitely planning on making more crafts like this for future baby gifts (and some for my little one due in December too.)
