Baby Shower Clothes Line Gift Idea

20 Mar

Do you like to give different and unique gifts?  Well here is the perfect baby shower gift idea for you.  I had a baby shower to go to and wanted to make something different than normal.  I wanted to give baby detergent and some personalized baby items.  So how to incorporate all of it?   A clothes line…..

Here is what I did.

 (Sorry for the lack of  pictures on this one)

I attached some socks, an outfit, wash clothes, a personalized burp cloth,

baby bib and some blank burp clothes to either use or have personalized later on.

I attached all with clothes pins to a piece of rope.

Then I found a small laundry basket  and tucked this clothes line in with a small pack of diapers and the wipes case cover that I made to match the burp cloth and bib.  Link to the Case cover tutorial.

I also added some baby detergent on the side.  Very cute and really reasonably priced gift!!

Fabric Covered Wipe Case

20 Mar

 

 

Here is a very quick and easy no sew project.

Printable pattern:  Wipe Case Cover

First print out your pattern pieces   Wipe Case Patterns

Next Cut out 2 pieces of fabric and 2 pieces of batting

If you are going to add a appliqué to the case do it now.

Use the cross on the pattern piece as your center point

Gather the rest of your supplies.

You will need a glue gun and glue sticks

¼” Ribbon or trim 55” long

Wipe case (Huggies Case is what I used)

Fabric and batting pieces

 

Squeeze glue all over the top of the case

 

Next lay 1 piece of batting over the top of the case and press

 

Repeat with back side.  Glue and press last piece of batting over the glue

Now carefully squeeze glue on the back edge of the case

Now lay one of the fabric pieces on top of the case and line the edge of the fabric over the glue and press. Don’t worry about corners right now.  Continue gluing all around case on long sides.

Next glue corners.

Place a little glue on corner

Evenly distribute the fabric down on corners and press

 

Repeat with other side

 

Trim any over hanging fabric off of the edges

 

Next starting on the back of the case squeeze a little glue on the edge of case and then press in the trim. Working in small sections at a time.

 

Work your way all around one side

 

When you come to the end cut so that you over lap your ribbon slightly.  Glue down into place.

Repeat with other edge.
