Gifts for the Boyn Family
I love bonnets and have been wanting to make one for a long time. This sweet little bonnet and booties set is for new baby Clara. I think these came out so cute, and it was pretty easy to make. I think I’m going to start featuring these in my shop as new baby gift sets for girls. I find that my booties for boys seem to sell much faster than my stuff for girls–maybe because Etsy is so girl-centric so there is less competition for my boy stuff. Maybe pulling together sets like this will move the girl booties more quickly.
And a little travel crayon roll-up for her big brother, to go with a big fat Thomas the Tank Engine coloring book. The fabric I used on this was quite thick, so it’s not as neat on the edges and corners as I would have liked. Steve says it has a “handmade feel” but I think that is a nice way of saying “poor craftmanship” :/
Ahh well, I still think it is cute enough to give, I just have to make more and perfect the technique. The carrot car illustration is from fabric I found at Ikea in the children’s section. Ikea is my new favorite fabric place. They have really cute stuff and super cheap, too!
