Baby Mitts and Caps for Baby Shower Gift

baby shower buttonIt is a pleasure to participate in the virtual baby shower for Jess at Gracious Threads.  This month, she is hosting a Baby Shower to celebrate her new baby boy.  There have been so many fun and inspirational posts all about baby stuff on her blog.  There are tutorials, pattern reviews and round ups, crafts to make, and all kinds of things for babies and new moms.

Today, I posted a Baby Mitt Tutorial HERE for making those cute mittens for little baby hands.  I shared the free pattern template and tutorial to make your own mittens for your baby or to give as a baby gift.

We gifted my daughter’s preschool teacher with a set of mitts and matching baby cap for the pending arrival of her baby boy.  The cap was made from Zaaberry Baby Hat tutorial found HERE.  The mitts and hat are in the organic knit fabric called Serengeti by Birch.
