Since little Finn has only about 2 months left to bake in my oven I have been preparing some things for his arrival. I wanted to know what types of things are most important to have so I asked some of my friends who already have kidos.
One of THE most important things to have, according to my friend Kelly, is lots of onsies. I can see the logic in this. For quite awhile we're going to have a little human that barfs and poops non-stop. I have come to accept this fact and decided to heed my friend's advice. I bought a whole bunch of onsies and spiced them up.
The images are Marimekko and I love them. They just needed a little touch up in photoshop. I bought some iron-ons (which are so cool by the way) and printed off the images on an ink-jet printer. The best thing of all? They are actually machine washable.
Another project that I put together were some wee little shoes. I LOVE baby shoes! The only problem is, buying cute ones from a store is super expensive. Plus, the kid will grow out of them in like a week. I bought some wool felt (from a specialty quilting store) and tried to copy a pattern of some baby shoes I like on etsy.
I'm quite satisfied with the results of both projects. Making things for Finn actually helps me not focus on how worried I actually am about being a parent. Everyone is nervous about becoming a parent... right?
