Easy Handmade New Baby Gift

Easy-Handmade-New-Baby-Gift-2 Easy Handmade New Baby Gift

When my best friend’s babies came along I made each of them name pictures for the nursery wall.

Because it was such a momentous event (super exciting but also signalling the end to our era of clubbing!) I wanted something special that they could keep forever.

My friend must have liked them as
she has now asked me to create
one for her brand new niece.

Because they are personalised and handmade they feel really special, but actually they are really easy to make.

Here’s how:

  1. Easy Handmade New Baby GiftBuy a frame with a mount, a selection of ribbons, a sheet of felt and an embroidery silk in the same tones.
  2. Cut a piece of card slightly larger than the aperture of the mount. Stick lengths of ribbon along the back of one side and weave with ribbons on the adjacent side. Take a look at my Easter card blog for the technique <link> https://dairydiarychat.co.uk/2016/03/09/banish-the-blue-part-2/
  3. On a piece of paper print out your chosen name in simple lettering. Cut out the letters and pin to the felt. Cut around the letters. Use the embroidery silk to do a blanket stitch around the edge of each letter.
  4. Glue the letters to the finished woven ribbon card and place in the frame.
