This is actually my first post. I dont know why I've never posted anything I've made before. Oh well. My Sister in law just had her first baby and it is a girl so I wanted to make a few girly baby things for her.

Inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=341523.0 I think partially because the baby was so freakin adorable...
I went to Target and got a package of onsies and headed off to the craft store to find some cute matching fabrics for the skirts.

The first one I made exactly as the tutorial said.

I didn't love how it ended up looking, so I modified the last 2 skirts to be just pull on/off. Here they are paired with the rest of the onsies that I didn't destroy in the process of trying a new way... lol

This one ended up being my favorite Smiley

And I made these 2 headbands with some scraps

Then I decided to make a baby sling for mom with this tutorial http://www.handmade-adelaide-baby.com/free-baby-sling-pattern.html sorry this isn't the best picture but you can at least see the fabric


I hope they like everything. Maybe I can get some action shots once they get everything Smiley

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

Very cute. I am sure your SIL will love it. I really like the off whitish print skirt, very pretty fabric. I think maybe now that my DD is into skirts I will make her one of these.

Get some action shots!

these are sooo cute. I tried to make a onsie dress and I make several mistakes. I am so glad yours came out so well.

I have to agree about the first one - it just doesn't look quite right and would probably be better as two pieces.  The skirt fabric is super cute!
