Handmade Gifts for Babies

My brother and his wife are expecting their first child in about 4 weeks.  It's been a couple of years since we've welcomed a new baby into our family and we're all very excited.  In celebration of the babies arrival, this weeks "Cool Stuff for Saturday" post is all about creative gifts for babies - all for you to make, bake or decorate ~ Enjoy.

To cover a sweet babies head:
So much cuter than the hats the hospitals give a newborn!

To protect yourself:
Handmade cloth wee wee wigwams are perfect for those moments of surprise when changing a little boys diaper.  Find the directions for this little shield here

To cover itty biity feet:

To cover sweet little bodies:

To decorate a wall:

To help baby learn:
A felt counting book full of color and texture ~ get a mind learning early with this wonderful, handmade book found here

A gift I made for my brother and his wife:
A hand painted surfboard on canvas ~ to go along with their Hawaiian themed babies room.

And finally - to cheer on the new parents
A "mocktail" that even nursing mothers can drink.  Find the recipe here

Counting down the days!!!!
