A big bucket of goodies for our dear friend Jackie who is having a baby boy soon! It turned out so cute I thought I would share some gift ideas:
The shirts were silk screened using the contact-paper method (click here to find the full tutorial for the method):
We added an upcycled pair of baby pants. These were made from a golf shirt and I added some cute truck trim to the bottom. (You can make a similar pair using elastic for the waist using the Recycle T-shirt Gauchos Tutorial.)
A pair of upcycled baby booties to match the pants (free pattern from Michael Miller):
We added in some new blankets, toys and this fun book The New Dad from A to Z by friend Dan Consiglio (also the author of the hilarious blog What my Kid’s Art Says). Dan’s book is the perfect gift to add for a dad because of its offbeat humor.
I love an eclectic mix of new and upcycled gifts!
