Sail away, Baby Boy!

 If you will recall when I made this card, I mentioned that I would be making some handmade baby items to go along with it. Well...I finally got them done. Emma and I ended up by missing the shower, so my deadline was no longer pressing and I procrastinated.  In the end, I had a lot of fun putting everything together...I don't know why I procrastinate SO much!  I did, however, reduce the amount of work for myself. I bought fabric to make 3 different bow ties but only made one. The main part of the gift was a pair of shorts, a golf style shirt and a Carter's romper. Each of the outfits will look darling sporting a tiny bow tie and these adorable sailor booties!

 I made a quick label to go on top of the box I gussied up for the shoes. I just used the same papers and everything that I used for the card so it was quick and easy, but has a nice boutique feel! Just what I was going for!  The stamp set is "Bitty Baby Blessings" from PTI.

 The bow tie was easy to make and the funnest part is packaging it up. Again, I used the same paper as the card for continuity.  If anyone is interested in a bow tie tutorial, I can add one on my other blog.  I have taken a few different ideas and come up with some of my own As a mom of boys, I have learned what works best for us!  I'd love to share some of my tips and tricks!

 I normally would post all of these items on my Thimbles and Thread blog, but since most of these things were made using my stamping supplies, I opted to post them here, too. I might get around to posting something over there as well, Or...maybe I'll procrastinate! LOL!

Anyway, you can see these super cute sailor shoes I made. They were made using the die cuts from PTI which makes it super easy. I can't wait to make up more of these fun shoes. Since these are my first try, I kept them super simple and only added a button for detailing. Now that I have worked out a few of the kinks, I will try some of the other die cut options that I also bought. The felt is from MFT and the floss is DMC. Thanks for fluttering by!

adorable! and I love how it all flows together. I have decided I just have to get that PTI die set for the shoes now! I have some baby showers coming up and these would just be adorable.
