Around the time little lad N was born, two friends of mine were also due with babies (remember the diaper cakes?). Along with the taggies, I also gave each friend a few baby legwarmers (LOVE me some babies in legwarmers!) and a ring sling.
The baby legwarmers are just too cute....and easy! I found a tutorial online for you if you want to try it yourself - I didn't do mine exactly like this but I belive this way might be a bit easier than how I did it anyhow. You can always find cute knee socks at Target. I really got into baby legwarmers when I was cloth diapering Miss A. More on cloth diapers another time!
I have made several ring slings since falling in love with mine when Miss A was an infant. It's really just a big rectangle of fabric, hemmed on all sides. The rings I purchased online at SlingRings. You can find instructions for practically any baby carrier online at Jan Andrea.
All this baby writing is making me want to sew up something for a newborn! Somebody out there give me a little munchkin to spoil!
