DIY Easy Baby Gift Ideas!

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!

New Friday Tutorial: The Autumn Stars Quilt

Make the Autumn Sweet Stars Quilt Using 2.5" Strips! Free Video Tutorial!

Every year as the days get shorter, a new star shows up to signal the arrival of fall. Fomalhaut, also known as the lonely star of Autumn, is so far away that the starlight we’ll enjoy this fall had to start its journey to Earth way back in 1991! Thank goodness that the Autumn Stars in today’s new quilt can be completed in just a few minutes!
