[D.I.Y. Gifts]: Personalised ‘Baby Boy’ Babygrow

BLOG_STRIP babyboy_joshua

Well, I’m pleased to say that 4 out of 13 mummies-to-be I personally know of have had their little ones…..3 of them in the space of a week! So I’ve been using my spare time over the weekends to create a little something small for the new arrivals. Had I all the time in the world I would’ve attempted much bigger projects but nevertheless, I did put my heart and soul into these……..besides, size can be  very deceptive!!  So, I opted to make some personalised baby grows which I felt could be worn as well as be kept as a keepsake and this post shows you how the first one came together. I went for a baby elephant theme (more to come!) so busied myself cutting out templates out of fabric and hand-sewing them directly onto the cotton baby grows I had bought. Once that was done I added the wee buttons for eyes and then moved onto some hand-embroidered lettering spelling out the name of the baby and their date of birth. And finally, I finished it off with a personalised label stitched onto the back of the baby grow……et voila! Nothing overly complicated but I do like the simplicity of it.  I’m hoping to get more adventurous within the sewing and embroidery department seeing as I rather enjoy it now! :) Let me know what you think! Oh and if you want any made, then just drop me a line and we can discuss whatever motifs and text you’d like to have. And it doesn’t have to be baby grows either…..i’m always up for a challenge!! :) xx
