I created these two handmade gifts for a friend’s baby shower.

She’s having her third boy & I wanted to give her something that was unique and something that she’ll be able to create a memorable record of his first year of physical changes. Plus, I just thought the baby needed a little Star Wars in his life.

Milestone Onesies

So, I bought a bunch of plain white onesies (15 to be exact)… newborn size up to 18 months, created graphics starting at 1 week old to 3 weeks old (since they change so much in that first month), then 1 month old up to 1 year old. I printed them out on iron on HP paper and ironed them on. I thought about buying those Picky Sticky things, but I thought the graphics available were too busy. We want those pictures to be more about the baby, so I chose to create something a bit more subtle.

Star Wars Diaper Clutch

… I was browsing Etsy one night… window shopping for Star Wars goodies (as I often do) and came across a diaper clutch. I thought… ‘Nicole needs one of these for baby R!!’ So, I found a tutorial and went ahead and made one for her. (Thank You, Mr. Sewing Machine for your cooperation.) It’s a little ditty that opens up to two pockets, one for diapers and one for wipes. When your done changing baby, close it up with an easy peasy, no fuss magnetic clasp. (Brilliant!) No, she’s not a Star Wars geek like me, but her baby Daddy and son is, so I’m sure baby R will be, too.
