When I glanced over the gift registry I saw she wanted some long-sleeve onesies. I was excited because I knew personalized onesies would be fun and unique. I made one with an appliqued tie (the same style that Sawyer wore many, many times), an elephant, and a dachshund dog that wraps around the back of the onesie. The dog was more challenging when it came time to do the satin-stitch around the edge of the applique, but it worked out with minimal outbursts.
I also made her a diaper wipe case because I totally loved the one I made for Sawyer. It's a brilliant idea. I could throw mine into my bag and not need a separate diaper bag. And I usually just left it in the car. I would refill the diapers as needed (I usually had 2-3 diapers, depending on the size) and a soft-pack of wipes (which sometimes froze in the cold, poor little Sawyer bum). This is a gift that I make for all baby showers. And it's so darn simple. Since I'm not a fan of Velcro, I use a button-loop closure.
And everything together. I found a cute hedgehog baby blanket that I just loved. I don't think she registered for it, but I couldn't resist. I also gave her a little bow tie, which I buy in multiples. I find them often on clearance at the Children's Place Outlet for 49-99 cents each. I've been buying them for years, as you can see Mason is sporting one a few years ago. Sawyer still wears his almost every Sunday.
