DIY Easy Baby Gift Ideas!

I love welcoming new bundles of joy to the world with homemade gifts from the heart. I just found out recently that I’ll have a new niece or nephew by this fall, my cousin’s pregnant, and so is one of my best friends! They seem to come in threes, don’t they? As you can imagine, I’ve already started dreaming about all the fun gifts I can make. 

DIY Easy Baby Gift Ideas from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

A baby quilt is always a wonderful option (we even have baby quilting kits and tutorials to help), but if you’re looking for something extra to go with it, or something a little quicker, here are some projects you’re bound to adore.

Soft Book Multi Panels at Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Small children have surprisingly strong grips! Keep them turning pages without tears with soft, fabric books. Choose from Safari Expedition, McAnderson’s Farm, Sweet Dreams Little One, Travel Around the World, You’re My Little Chickadee, and many more! Check them out HERE

Elephant Cuddle Family Kit

Stuffed animals are always a big hit with little ones, but they’re even better when they’re made with love instead of store-bought and when they’re made with extra plush Shannon Cuddle like these in the Elephant Cuddle Family Kit!

Fam_Animals

Old MacDonald had a farm e-i-e-i-o. And on that farm there were the cutest Farm Fun animals you’ve ever seen! These stuffed animals are so easy to make. Simply cut out the pieces from the fabric panel, stitch them together, and stuff. You’ll have a gift they’ll love completed in no time! 

Dudley and Dolittle Kit

 

Dudley and Doolittle are two life-size sea turtles that can’t wait to be squeezed! Wouldn’t they be the perfect addition to an “Under the Sea” themed nursery? We think so!

Fabric Feature & Giveaway: Bugsy by Kids Quilts for RJR Fabrics

Butterflies, ladybugs and flowers… they’re a good sign that spring is in full swing and summer is right around the corner! That’s why we love the Bugsy Collection by Kids Quilts for RJR Fabrics! It has a little bit of everything that we love about summer!

From the designer, “Bugsy is all about hot summers, flowers in full bloom, chasing butterflies and making daisy chains…simple things that make wonderful childhood memories. The color palette is bright, cheerful, fun and girly. Deep reds are balanced by soft pinks and buttery yellows. We included a beautiful teal blue, crisp leaf green and a surprise pop of orange just for fun.”
