New Sibling Gifts {or another excuse to make things}

This weekend, we took dinner to a family who recently added a third kiddo to their bunch. Remember this shower? Well Porter is now here and has already worn the animal shorts. They are stinking cute on!

I couldn't just show up with dinner. I had to bring presents. I wanted Porter's big sister and big brother to have a little something special. 

These cute little hair accessories aren't my handy work. I won them during giveaway day at Sew Mamma Sew. Hannah was so stoked to get them. She's a real girly girl and loves having her hair done. 

I used a Silhouette graphic to create the freezer paper stencil for this cute little guy. It's the second time I've used it for a little man's shirt. I just can't resist it. I used the fabric ink that came with my Silhouette and a toddler top from Joann's.

I wrapped the kiddo's presents up in some brightly colored tissue that I secured using baker's twine. I made it nice and easy for the six and two year olds to open without grown up help.

I made Porter an Easy Peasy Recieving Blanket using this fun flannel from Joann's. Why no pictures of the finished project? Because I totally spazed and forgot to start the blanket until 20 minutes before we had to leave to deliver dinner. I was cutting all the slits in it on our drive.  

Come party with me!


  1. What a great idea. My children sure loved it when someone made a big deal about them (instead of the new baby) once in a while!

    I'm hosting my first linky party "One Creative Weekend" at OneCreativeMommy.com. I'd love for you to visit and link up this idea or anything else you'd like to share.

  3. I love the font on your blog! So cute!

  4. Saw you at Serenity Now. The little hair clips are cute. I like the idea of giving the big siblings a gift. I've been thinking of what to do for 2 of my friends who are having babies soon and both have older children. :)

  5. Such a cute idea to give the older siblings a gift when new baby comes. Makes it special for everyone. It's something form me to think about when number 2 comes at the end of the year. I'd love it if you shared this over at my link party. http://acraftycook.blogspot.com/2012/07/1-month-of-fun-july-link-party.html
