If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a procrastinator...I just don't get worked up about getting stuff done ahead of time, because really, why the rush? Sometimes, that can be a good thing, like when I wait till the last minute to clean my kitchen before someone comes over...by waiting I only had to do it once, because it didn't have time to get messed up again. Sometimes, that can be a bad thing, like when friends have a baby in October and you give them their baby gift in February....
So, this is one of those bad thing procrastinations. Not that it makes it better, but it is their third baby and the third boy as well, so they were well stocked with essentials. AND, I was looking specifically for colored onesies that were plain and COULD NOT find them anywhere. Where do you get those? I know I could dye the white ones, but I hate it when the color doesn't turn out like I wanted or how sometimes the threads don't dye too. Sometimes I like that look, but sometimes I just want everything matchy-matchy, you know? So I just kept waiting and waiting.
But when you deliver a really-super-cute dress to a little girl born 2 days before Christmas and your October-baby-Mama friend is sitting right there and wants to know where her little boy's "dress" is, you can't procrastinate anymore.
So, I made these up yesterday afternoon. I just sat down and whipped them up. Not going for perfection, but a
And here they are:
This is the 12-month size, perfect for this fall. I made the laces out of white felt that I just stitched down. Yes, they're crooked and I really considered ripping them off, but that would have been a big pain, so I'm hoping when he wears it you don't notice so much! I left it generic so he can wear it to hometown, high school football games on Friday nights or on Saturdays for either of the teams his parents' pull for. You know how these divided football families are down here in the south...it gets heated on Saturdays!
I delivered them this afternoon and my friend was very happy with them. She said she still wanted the "dress" but with three boys at home, she'd happily take this bunch of onesies for now. ;)
So, now I've got 2 of the 4 baby gifts for January (yes, I know we're in February now) checked off. I've got the wonky stars quilt halfway done (pics coming when there's some real progress) and baby gift #4, well, I have a plan and that's a start, right?
Hope you are having a great Thursday! Thanks for stopping in. :)
