Baby Gifts for Girls

Last week I showed you some cute burp cloths I made for friend who had a baby in April.  This post is about the gift I gave to my friend who had her baby girl in March (just 3 days after me).  

When Papertrey Ink came out with these cute barrette cover dies,  I just HAD TO HAVE THEM.  The possibilities are endless.  Barrettes, hair bands, shoes clips, oh the possibilities are endless.  They make for great gifts too!  So when one of my friends had a baby in March, a cute baby girl with lots of hair, I took advantage and made these cute clips.  Being the mom of two boys, crafting for girls is a welcomed change.  Let's face it, crafty for girls is WAY more fun!

To make it even easier, PTI has a Boutique Accessory Die so that you can package your finished barrettes nice and pretty.   I love these, they make me yearn for a little girl but having a baby just for the fun crafts is probably not the wisest of choices.  

Still though, it is tempting.  I don't hold much hope that my boys will want to scrapbook or craft with me as they get older.  Oh well, I guess that is what sisters are for.......have girl babies (and crafting I guess).

I paired these with a cute coordinating outfit I found at Target but I forgot to snap a pic (darn!).  

If you love these as much as I do, head over to my etsy shop and I'll make you a set in any color.  I'll offer more options on my shop some day (some day when I'm not breastfeeding a baby) until then this is what you get.  Of course, you can always message me, I'm willing to do ALMOST anything.
