One of my favorite people in the world is having a baby! My best friend from college is having her first baby, a little girl. I wish we lived closer so that I could be there for her. This weekend she is having her baby shower and I am totally bummed that I can't be there. Since I'm unable to make the long trek to her neck of the woods, I wanted to make sure I sent a fun present that I know she'll get good use of.
Once I saw the tutorial on how to make these, I knew that I wanted to add a little special personalized touch to the package. These Diaper Wipes containers that I saw at Sew Dang Cute Crafts are just so stinkin' cute (and easy to make), I ended up making more than I needed! My first couple were experimental and I ended up giving them to Madie for pencil cases because the brand of container did not want to stay closed (Pampers). I tried the Huggies wipe containers and they worked really well.
Just wanted to share the ones that I made...I had fun making the little embellishments on top!
|This was my first one..I put the trim all around on this one and it was a bit too much (especially since they didn't stay shut) I loved the fabric though, so it reappears later.|
|I loved this one, too. This was the first one I did with the Huggies container--so much better!|
|Cute little collection...makes me want a baby to need one of these again...well, maybe not! ha!|
|Loved the fabric on these and the ribbon is super cool. The bottom container also got an embellishment, just didn't take a pic.|
|I love this one. I initially tried to trim it with ribbon, but wasn't too excited by it. So, I found this lace-like trim to attach over the ribbon and I think it was just the right touch!|
|Had to make another one with this fabric. I love the little bow in the middle!|
Thanks for the great idea, Sew Dang Cute Crafts!
