When I need to find a gift for a new baby and I have no idea of what the parents want or need, I often resort to making a custom baby bib. Because you can't have too many bibs and a personalized one is always cute.
The easiest way to do this is, of course, to buy one of those pre-made bibs with a bit of aida fabric on the front, thus ready to embroider.
This one is from DMC and I cross stitched the name of the baby to be in bold, girly colors (originally I took additional pictures, but then somehow managed to erase them before actually writing this post).
The cross stitch chart is also from DMC and I found it on Pinterest. You can download it here.
To complement the baby bib I decided to make a cute gift package too. I used my cereal box to gift package tutorial to create a one of a kind gift package, ideal for a baby girl.
I started with a box of baby cereal and covered it in pink self adhesive paper.
Then I glued some glittery hearts and added a matching ribbon.
Perfect! One pretty custom made inexpensive baby gift that any expectant mother will love!
