Threads & Thrills Thursday...baby gifts and Girl Boy Girl Inspired!

I realize that the idea of an appliqued/printed t-shirt or onesie isn't a new thing. But have you noticed how much cuter and easier they to produce now a days?
Thanks to crickets, silhouettes, and the like, you can make anything, almost without scissors.
 
I have baby gifts on the brain lately! I think almost everyone I know is either pregnant or just had a baby.
{I just found out I'm going to be an aunt again! Wahoo!!!}
With so many gifts to come up with, I have to have something practical. I bought three 5 packs
{yes, that many!} of plain white onesies and 4 receiving blanket sets to make matching gifts of a blanket and onesie each, and then set out to find some inspiration...
 
This is an older post, but I LOVE it. I have a few friends that this suits to a "T",
{or onesie as the case may be}
there is a super tutorial for it over at I Heart Naptime,
my favorite part is that she attached everything with velcro so you can have a new outfit just by changing the flowers!
 
 
And really, can you go wrong with this for your little man?
This one is from Sew Dang Cute, but you can find them everywhere.
{just fyi, if I had a boy, I'd totally hang over at I Am Momma, Hear Me Roar, she has the boy thing down!}
 
These are what I'm currently loving...
6_months_onesie
 
Almost makes me want to have a baby!
{Kidding, honey you can start breathing again...}
I love that you can keep track of how old your munchkin is just by getting them dressed, and seriously, what a spectacular gift! Most of the sets I've seen have 5 shirts age o, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.
I found the tutorial for this set here
*note-these are iron on transfer patterns, not appliques!
 
And last, time for a shout out!!! In my searching for inspiration I saw this...
As the momma to 5 girls,  I'm a sucker for pink.
I contacted the maker of this sweet outfit and found an amazingly talented and super sweet lady!
And well, I absolutely have to share her with you...
