30 Minute Shorts Baby Gift

I made another of the Create H.O.P.E. Designs patterns. You can find out more about them from my last post here. This time I used the 30 Minute Shorts pattern. I decided to make them part of a baby shower gift for a friend's shower next week. Since I was combining the shorts with a heart onesie, I kept them simple with solid colors. I think they turned out pretty cute. The pattern was easy to follow. I ended up using 3/8" elastic instead of 1/2" since it fit better in the waistband.

The headband was made using the tutorial here by Oxford Family guest posting on Craftaholics Anonymous and the flower on it from the tutorial here at Action Hero.

The flower embellishment on the onesie was made using the tutorial for the last onesie here at 2 Little Hooligans.

I love making baby gifts. I'm expecting my second child any day now.

There's still time to enter the giveaway this month at Hopeful Threads. Just buy and sew a pattern from the Create H.O.P.E. Designs pattern shop and link up a blog post about it.
