Homemade Baby Shower Gifts

I do not claim to be the best sewer out there. Truth be told, when sewing I look for easy! When we found out that we were going to be blessed with  grandson #3 I did what everyone else does…searched Pinterest!  This is a great collection of easy DIY baby gift ideas.  This collection was so fun and if you can sew a straight line, you can make these.

Homemade Car Seat Cover

This cover I modified a little from the original pattern. I love the “rag” look, so I kept that theme through all the items. Here in Texas it gets a little warm, so we didn’t need a double thickness for the cover. Once this was cut I just stitched 1/2″ all the way around and clipped it. You can find the tutorial at Calico

Homemade Baby Wash Clothes

Wash Clothes are great to make with those scraps of left over material. I followed a wonderful tutorial by Creations by Kara.

Homemade Burp Rags

Everyone needs burp rags! These I just traced a burp rag to use as a pattern. Then sewed wrong sides together leaving 1/2 all the way around. Then clipped them! Remember that when making “rag” type items the more you wash and dry, the more they will get the “rag” look.

Homemade Baby Bibs

The bibs are another quick and easy project. I used a great pattern at Sew She Sews. I just cut 2 out, put wrong sides together and did my 1/2 inch all the way around and clipped! Then sewed on the Velcro and you’re done. It’s that easy.

Homemade Diaper Tote2

Homemade Diaper Tote

This diaper tote with changing pad is something that Samantha uses often. It was a little bit more work then the others, but still easy straight line sewing. I used a tutorial at Cluck Cluck Sew.

Homemade Baby Blanket

This rag blanket was easy! I just cut the size I wanted. Pinned the wrong sides together. Sewed a big X from corner to corner and then sew 1/2 inch all the way around and clipped. You can tell by the picture that this has not been washed but one time. Remember…the more you wash the more it will fray!

Large Homemade Diaper Bag

Small Homemade Diaper Bag

Now that you have all these wonderful baby items, you need something to put them all in. Yes, these are a little more involved then all the others, but I have to admit, they are fun to make! I suggest if this is your first time making a rag bag diaper bag purchase some instructions like at Cherrie Blossom Quilts. You will be glad you did.

What are your favorite homemade baby gifts to give?
