Before Jackson was born, I decided to make a few little items for him.
The moose embroidery design is part of Bunnycup Embroidery’s Forest Animal colection, which also comes in applique format. I put the design on a Carter’s brand onesie. It was my first time embroidering on a onesie. I know the design and placement is not perfect, but I love it.
I’d received a duvet cover amongst the fabric I inherited from my Bobo. I reasoned that she wouldn’t mind it I re-purposed it, and made a crib sheet from the backing for Jackson. I am still contemplating what to do with the front which is blocks of the backing fabric and horse head fabric. It might become a quilt of some sort. Elle isn’t upset in the picture by the way. She really liked playing in the crib, and she knew I couldn’t get her out if she lay down flat. My big belly got in the way of reaching her. I used MADE’s crib and toddler sheet tutorial.
I used the same Jack Skellington fabric that I’d made Danica’s underwear out of to make some little beanies for Jackson. I followed a tutorial that I found on Make It & Love It. In Jackson’s first few days of life River was overly concerned about him being “not too hot, not too cold” and always brought me one or both of his Skellington hats. She even tossed them in my hospital bag. She’s too sweet.
