12 month onesies

Last month I shared with you the baby shower gift I made for my sister in law. I had a request to make another set for my cousins first baby and set to work. Since I didn't get any *great* pictures of the first set of 12 month onesies I made, I made sure to get a ton more pictures this time around!

Kate is one of those types who likes to be surprised at delivery time so she doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl. I'm putting my money on a boy though!

I tried to make the onesies as gender neutral as possible. When I make a baby gift for the parents to be I usually check the parents baby registry to find out what colors they like.

This babies nursery is mostly blues and greens, so I found a few fabrics in that color scheme.




From the first month to the twelfth, the baby will have a onesie and a picture to document his or her growth.

All packaged up as a great keepsake for the little one.

Squeal! How cute! I am thinking about making a set myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh my gosh, what a fantastic idea! I'm totally stealing this for the next baby shower I go to! We took photos of our son with the same bear each month for the first year and it would have been awesome to have the onesies to go with it! Genius. I'm pinning this, but I'd also love for you to link it here!

What a great idea, and such a sweet present for a new mom. The pictures will be precious. You could also include a matching collage frame with this gift (or maybe have someone else give that, since this is such a nice gift on its own!)
