baby bundle.

A friend of mine is heaving around a belly bump just like me! (Only she is about 7 weeks ahead of me, so her bump is bigger than the one this little girl gives me.) We are celebrating her little one's soon arrival this Saturday, so I picked up some gifts to help welcome him. And I decided to try my crafty hand at personalizing the gift.

Here it is:

I took some Gerber pre-fold diapers (burpcloths) that were on clearance at Target and I found this perfectly matching green jersey material in the scrap bin at Joann for $2. I drew some shapes (helicopter, van, t-rex, stegosaurus), pinned, and sewed them on, adding just a bit of personalized detail to the gift.

Then I packaged them all together with this tag: "out of the mouths of BABES" because, let's be honest, burpcloths are for what comes out, and pacifiers often come out rather than stay in. :]
