Sewn Baby Gift Ideas and Tutorials

My blog friend, Tracey, asked if I had any ideas on what to sew for a new baby.  Although I have lots of ideas for great gifts, I have to keep it simple as there are not enough hours in the day to keep up with all the new babies being born around me…LOL!

When I have to make quick baby gifts, I tend to do a lot of embroidery and embellishing.  I’ll do lots of onesies, burp cloths, bibs, diaper covers and blankets.

  1. OH WOW! Okay, I don’t know where to start. I want to do them all. It’s a good thing I have four (yeah, that right, I said four) embroidery machines; and I will be running them all at the same time. I probably should have waited until I got home to look at your blog, because now I want to leave work and start sewing. Thank you soooo much Lisa. I really appreciate your gracious generousity.

    Tracey – helping to mold the next generation of divas.

  2. nice!

  3. Lisa–you are a fountain of knowledge! I love making baby gifts and I love reading your blog. I’m officially delurking! I saw you post it a while ago on an ebay board so now I’m officially letting you know that I’m a faithful reader in South Carolina! Thanks for always sharing the tips and tricks that you and for sharing the coolest stuff! I have a long list of baby stuff that I need to make in the next month so I’ll be bookmarking this entry!

  4. Glad you like it Tracey! Enjoy!

    Hi Anne! Welcome! Don’t be a stranger!

    With friendship,
    Lisa

  5. i love the gift items you have posted here! :) i want to try making booties and underwears with ribbons… they’re just too cute :) how did u start sewing? i want to learn as well :)

  6. Hey CJ…I started sewing about 5 or 6 years ago. Even though my mom has sewn all my life, she moved away and I ended up teaching myself. The most important thing I can suggest is to READ, READ and READ some more.

    There are great sewing instructions on the internet and in the bookstore. Take a look at Sewing for Dummies and the Reader’s Digest Sewing Book…both are wonderful books to get you started. Good luck!

    With friendship,
    Lisa

  7. I am soooo happy that I found this site. I am just starting to experiment with different patterns and such and just love this site. Thank you sooooo much!

  8. I would love to know the origin of the monogram design for the Bella panties. I have never seen this and it is very cute. Thanks for all the great info on your blog. pewa
