So don't judge, but the projects I'm about to share with you were Christmas gifts.
I know. It's February.
But in my defense, one of the receipiants just got his gift this past weekend, so I didn't want to spoil the gift by posting about it before he got it.
Okay, that makes it sounds worse. Maybe I should 'splain. He didn't get his gift because this little bundle of joy just joined the world on February 5th.
See? I couldn't put this one out there before he even got his gift, right? Right?!
But I digress. Onto the projects at hand. The first--appliqued stuffed blocks.
Daniel and Isaac, both sons of very good friends of our family, received the same gifts. They're babies and they're boys--a combination that makes gift making difficult.
But I came across this tutorial over at Sew Like My Mom and thought it was a great gift idea for the babies. Super cute and soft.
And for each of these little cuties to wear...
You can never go wrong with an appliqued onsie when it comes to babies, but an appliqued vest and tie? To. Die. For.
I came across this idea at Lemon Tree Creations. I used some fabric scraps I had on hand for the tie and black corduroy for the vest.
I'd like to be able to report that the boys simply adored their gifts, but, well, they're babies. But their parents loved them. :o)
