My grand Daughter says Burps & Bibs r the 2 things she needs the most of. You have gotten excellent ideas that should keep u busy . *4U
I did a white fleece blanket with ALL the baby info..Complete name,date,time,day of the week, weight, length and name of the Hospital...If it for a christening then just do name, date,church and a small cross * a saying like: baby name then "a child of God" is very nice(Meganne did some VERY nice small crosses in designs by cuties)
A terry cloth hooded towel, a quilt, a flannel or fleece blanket embroidered as desired.
Check out the projects under childrens wearables at http://www.emblibrary.com There are many ideas as well as videos.
a play matt with colorful designs to keep his attention when placed down...a growth chart is also a nice gift, especially if you could embroidery their nursery theme on it.
Google Heirloom Handkerchief and Bonnet and that is a great gift.
You can buy a pack of diapers and embroidery baby stuff or their name on it.I bought quilted material and cut out bibs..then I took seam binding and sewed across the top first then around the bib leaving a good bit at the top on each side for tying. Then I embroider a baby thing on it..I also cross-stitched by hand and used "tear sway waste canvas". They turned out cute.
I brought them back to the top if you would like to see. They are in projects.
I have bought a blanket put the babies name on it. I have post one in projects a while back. Everyone just loved it.
