Baby Girl Sweetness

A friend of mine had a baby shower yesterday. She is having a girl which is great because it is so easy to whip up some girly gifts. All I had to buy was the onesies and the diaper wipes case. Which reminds me that I forgot to take a picture of it!!! Ugh! I hate when that happens. It was so cute with zebra fabric and pink ribbon and a green fabric bow. Oh well, maybe I can sneak a picture of it later.

So, all the fabric I used was scrape fabric leftover from other projects. Awesome! It's always a good feeling when you don't have to run to the fabric store to make some really cute gifts. Especially when there isn't a good fabric store near you!

So here is a little dress that I made from a onesie. I didn't cut it, it still has the snaps on the bottom. I love how this turned out. I will post a tutorial a little later.

Disclaimer: Please excuse the wrinkled sheet background. As stated before, I am not a photographer! Maybe one day I will get a little better at taking pictures.
Next: The Ruffle Butt Onesie. This was featured at Ucreate about a year ago. I have been wanting to make this one for a while. So here it is....

Unfortunately, I don't have a model for this one. I can't wait to see it on! I did this a little different than the tutorial. I don't have a serger and I am not a fan of the fabric fraying. So, I sewed a tube and turned it right-side out and then created the ruffle. I love how it turned out. I can't wait to make some more.
And then you can never have enough burp cloths right? At least so I am told. So I made a couple. This one I really like because it curves in in the center so it contours to your neck. It looks like a big bone, but I think it will work very nicely.
Although it's not shown here (I swear I took more pictures than this! I don't know what happened to the others! Ugh!) the other side is a microfiber dish towel. That should be super absorbent!

I still have lots of scraps so I hope to start stockpiling some of these items to have them on hand when needed!

I hope you enjoy and have a Happy Monday!

Love the ruffle butt onesie! I might have to try that for my daughter. Thanks for the idea! BTW, visiting from Something I just whipped up. =)
