I'm always exited to use my craftiness to create something more memorable than a few adorable but purchased outfits and a box of diapers. For baby Urijah, I decided to find a bib and bootie tutorial.
For the bib, I made my own pattern. If you're familiar with bibs at all, it's fairly simple. I added a tie AND snaps so it will be able to adjust as the baby grows. The top fabric is 100% cotton while the back and accents are felt.
The booties were a bit more complicated, so I found a simple pattern from the Purl bee. If you have extra felt, thread, and elastic handy, you're good to go. It's hard to tell from the crappy cell phone pictures I took, but I added little felt baseballs to the sides. The parents are White Sox fans, so I thought they'd appreciate it.
And you can't forget the bag! I went for a minimalist approach here, as I'm not too fond of the super sweet, commercialized baby prints.
When I'm ready to have my own children, I have a feeling most items with be homemade. At least for the first one - since I'll have the time!
