Baby boom! More Baby Gifts!

I know that it seems like all I do is post baby gifts that I make for my friends and family, but there is a SERIOUS baby boom going on around here so, I will probably post more! :)

Here is my latest baby gift!  For a baby boy that was born premature (He is doing great now!)  I wanted to give the mommy something for her little peanut to wear right now that would not look like he is  drowning in it!

Appliqued Onesies with matching leg warmer!
 The leg warmer act as pants and make diaper changing so easy! 
I made my leg warmers from knee-high socks. 
{You can use this tutorial from Sew Much Ado
I made the leg warmers skinner (since we are talking about a preemie), I just took in the sides.

 It is always nice to give a personalized gift! 
This one has the baby's first initial! 
And who can resist those argyle leg warmers!

And the polka-dots are darn cute too!  

I used the sock material left over from making the leggings.
 Sock material is not the easiest material to applique with (it likes to curl on the edges). 
But I fought my way  through to get this cute wonky little "J"

 I made my own patterns by free handing the shapes (or letter)... nothing too fancy... simple is better!

I love making baby gifts!

So cute! Love how you used the leftover material for the applique so that everything coordinates. Thanks for sharing.
