As a crafter, I know how long it takes to make some handmade gifts. Items I receive need more than the few minutes of love I can give it, so I’m happy to post these Handmade with Love posts that showcase great handmade cards or gifts I have received.
SOTD Contributor and good friend Jamie just welcomed a new baby girl back in May. This new mom still kept up her thoughtful spirit when gifting me the most adorable little coordinating outfits for the girls! At our maternity photo shoot session she gave me the above card informing me of an upcoming package delivery. This is what ultimately showed up:
Yes, the most adorable, sparkling coordinating big sister and little sister outfits! While this wasn’t something Jamie handmade, it was something she thoughtful picked out through Etsy, a handmade website I always like to support! The Tshirt/Onesie came from Viva La Glitter and the headband/hair bows came from Ava Baby Clothing.
For her birth announcements I had these two sport their matching outfits. Brielle wore the gold clips but I had converted my floral belt made when pregnant with Brielle into a pretty headband for Hailey. Don’t worry, I foresee much use out of the white and gold headband originally gifted with this outfit!!
When Brielle was born I was gifted lots of beautiful handmade blankets and quilts. One was from Nicole, a previous guest poster and Handmade with Love multi poster! Two years later, she gifted Hailey a coordinating blanket of her very own, giving it to me only HOURS before Hailey was born.
My bestie and SOTD Allie gets her creative juices from her mom, Karen. Karen’s talents were both seen for Allie’s bridal shower (check out that cake) and when hosting her baby shower only a few short years later. She gifted Brielle a crocheted blanket she used often to cover up while in her stroller and just a few days after Hailey’s arrival, she received a beautifully crocheted blanket of her very own. I LOVE the color combos and unique design in this blanket and know it will help keep my little miss warm on strolling adventures in the near future!
