Baby Boy Gifts

So my neighborhood seems to go in stages.  Everyone has girls, then everyone has boys.  Kinda nice for them, unfortunately it wasn't that way when I had my babies.  Anyways... One of my sweet, caring, perfect neighbors just had twin boys.  And my 'just' I mean about 2 weeks ago, i'm kinda behind.  They are about 6 weeks premature and teeny (about 4 lbs each) so I knew I had to make something extra cute.  AND I get to make 2 of them.  (I admit, it is an excuse to craft & sew, but hey any excuse will do)

So I found the cutest soft cordory material over at Hobby lobby, and figured I would make them matching (but not matching) blankets.  I decided to do an extra soft flannel on the otherside one blue and one green.   I just cut the material to the size I wanted them   Then to personalized it a little more I found this adorable dinosaur applique over at Little Lizard King.  Then, with right sides together I sewed around the edges leaving a 3 inch opening to turn it right side out.  After ironing I did a quick stitch around the outside edge to hold it all together and this is what I got!

I think they turned out great!

Now I had to roll them up cute, because as we all know delivery is everything
But my creative juices were still flowing, and I really wasn't ready to stop, so I decided to pull out the onsies and make them matching 'tie' onsies.  I used the tutorial and pattern over at Crap I've Made (I just love the name of that blog) and the leftover scraps from the dinosaur applique's.

Awwww... how precious!
