7 Handmade Baby Gifts
Handmade baby gifts have more heart than store-bought, so you know that your recipient will cherish them. Craft up these DIY baby gifts this holiday season.
Whether you have a new baby of your own, or know someone who has just had one, there is nothing more special than a handmade gift for a little one. These presents will be held onto and cherished for a long, long time. I still have my first plush toy, crocheted for me by a family friend. Here are seven projects that you can make for that special new person in your life.
1. Felt Baby Booties
This project found on Martha Stewart would be loved by mom and baby alike. They’re super simple to make and the personalization possibilities are endless.
2. Towel Burp Cloth
Over on Prudent Baby, there is an easy project that uses a piece of fabric and a terry cloth towel to create a burp cloth. There is also a link to a pocket baby bib that would make a fantastic gift set.
3. Bird Mobile
This bird mobile would make a gorgeous addition to any baby nursery. The style of this project is gender neutral and will ensure that the mobile can be enjoyed for a long time in any room of your home.
4. Baby Toys
Made By Bedtime Tales shows us how to re-vamp used toys that are attached to mobiles hanging from a crib. You could easily make this project without the velcro attachments to make single baby toys.
5. Baby Christmas Ornament
Help commemorate baby’s first Christmas by crafting up this adorable ornament from Zakka Life. Embroider the baby’s name on the scarf to make it even more personal and special.
6. Washcloth Puppets
Make bath time more fun for baby with these cute washcloth puppets from Martha Stewart. Create different types of animals, and even people, for a whole bath time set.
7. Baby Carriers
Do you have any gifts that you were given as a baby that you still cherish? I would also love to see some projects or tutorials you’ve whipped up for a new baby in your life. Feel free to leave some comments and links.
