baby goodies time! i went to a baby shower on the weekend for my friend alex and could not resist whipping up some baby goodies for her soon to be little boy. i will openly admit it was sooooo much fun to make boy stuff! i had a great time choosing the pressies to make and of course i had to make at least one thing in my fave color turquoise

i had to throw in a pattern i've been dying to make for a few months now the bapron from the lovely jess of craftiness is not optional. i LOOOOVE this bib! seriously...i think it rocks all bibs. it's super fast to make, easy and a great way to show off some fun fabric. i plan on making a pile more of these.

i then paired it up with an adorable drool kerchief from one of my fave sewing books "simple sewing for baby" by lotta jansdotter. i highly recommend this book for anyone looking for an awesome collection of usable baby items that are modern and fabric focused. it's one of my most used books. the fabric used for these is one that i actually got accidentally shipped to me instead of what i ordered and it's called pirate pups in light blue from alexander henry and let me tell you i was not sure what the heck to do with is so saved it in the hopes that someone i know would have a boy.

best part is if you don't knit and want one of these cuties you can also pick them up from my pal rebecca's etsy shop "nook". they come in all sorts of bright and fun colors and an array of sizes. she's busy whipping up a ton for an xmas market so they aren't all listed right now but if you convo her i'm sure she'd love to do any custom orders. these are great for girls and boys.
i heart making baby pressies and couldn't resist showing you all what i've been working on. i cannot wait to see baby oliver sporting these in a few months. it makes me wish harper was tiny again cause i really slacked on making items for her in baby sizes. i think i made one thing...lol. embarrassing. oh well, i have lots of time to make up for it now when the sizes can actually be worn longer than a month or two..lol. stay tuned tomorrow...there's a tutorial coming your way....
