This is one of the simplest baby gifts I have done - I posted it on the unswap thread for the December embroidery project but I thought I'd share it here as a gift idea seeing as it is so easy!

I just bought the supplies in the supermarket...just plain white singlets, itty bitty bibs and plain white socks. The first one I did was on a onsie instead of a singlet (and I used bright green thread).

Close up...

For the bib and the singlet just use a simple running stitch with 6 strands of embroidery cotton around the edges - follow an existing stitch line - I used one yellow stitch to cover two of the existing stitches...so easy and makes for straight lines!

For the lettering on the singlet I used split stitch to embroider the word babe which I drew on first.

For the socks, I just did a running stitch around the top and the bottom of the folded "cuff" so it becomes permanantly folded down.

So far these simple little sets have been received with lots of smiles!

Thanks Nikkicola. It is so easy even if you don't do much stitching...just follow those lines!

how much are plain white singlets, plain bibs, etc? just wondering. i've been wanting to start new crafts i havent done before and i'm stuck on a baby theme.. not sure why though..

so so so cute! Cheesy are all the ones you've made say the same thing? or have you tried different phrases/words?

Hey Vagina Star I'm in Australia so I don't know how much the baby supplies would cost where you are but here they were really really cheap - the bibs were only 50cents!! Which would be maybe 30cents US - ish. The singlets and the socks were maybe about $2 each. I am pretty sure if you couldn't find them in your supermarket you would be able to find plain ones at KMart or Target or somewhere like that.

So far the sets I've made have all had the word babe on them but I have used different colours for each set. I have also used onsies instead of the singlet which is just as cute!

Post a photo if you give it a go!

Quite often Dollar Tree has 4 packs of the little terry cloth baby wash cloths, 2 packs of plain (solid colored) bibs,   & 3 packs of plain baby socks.  they would be perfect for this project.

I love this project - so simple and quick!  thankyou so much for the idea!
I made a set of a singlet and bib for my neighbours' new baby - i used orange thread and embroidered the bib  with the word "bebe" (with accents over the e's) for some exotic french stylie!  it went down a treat!

Great idea! I like the simplicity of the design. Thank you for sharing!
