7 Handmade Baby Gifts

7 Handmade Baby GiftsHandmade 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.

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.
