Handmade Baby Shower Gift: Bow Tie Onesie with Suspenders

Seems like everyone I know right now is expecting a baby.
Well not everyone... but you know how sometimes it seems like everyone around you is pregnant or has a baby? That is where I am:) Which means I get to make cute baby gifts! And even though I am 'all about the girls'-- I found something sweet to make for little guys too!

Using a Gerber onesie, I made a little bowtie and suspenders from some of my favorite fabrics. I stitched them on, making sure to turn under all the raw edges. Then I added some of the same fabric to a burp cloth, turning under the raw edges again. Finally, I used a pattern similar to this one, to make a 'diaper/wipes' holder or one like this. It's a cute way to keep diapers and wipes organized in your bag.

**This idea could easily be done in girl version, choosing different colored fabrics and attaching the bow to the side (like a little brooch!).

And here is the onesie on the cutest little baby boy-- don't you just love him?! His mom sent me this photo several months after the shower. I was delighted!!!
