Baby Fever

Don't you agree that there is nothing more special than the arrival of a new baby.  It is just so exciting.  Over the last few months I have been buying lots of handmade goodies to give as gifts to my niece and the little baby girl she is expecting any day now.  I have purchased most of my items either from Folksy or Facebook.  Actually, come to think about it I did buy one of them from Etsy – gosh I have been a busy bee!

For my blog post today I thought I would show you, and any expectant Mums, (and Dads) or family or friends who want to give gifts on the occasion of a new birth a selection of beautiful items that you can purchase from Folksy.  So sit back and enjoy, for once I shall not be saying very much.  (Was that a collective sigh of relief I heard?)  Yes, I know I am too wordy in my blog posts, but today you will happy to know I am going to try and be very quiet!

To start with we have beautiful card from Emma at Clarkie Designs.

Next we have a gorgeous knitted cardigan from Carol at Knittingtopia.  It is a wonderful colour, don't you agree?

Susan from Dottie Designs has made this beautiful memory book.

I just love baby clothes - they are just so cute and Natalie from NOfkants Curios has made this lovely baby jacket.

Now here is something very special for the wall of the baby nursery.  It is so colourful and full of meaning.  This is from Linda at Uniquely Yours Designs.

You can't have a new baby without having something special to wrap him/her in or place over the crib or pram.  This super crocheted blanket is by Rosalind from Myfanwysmakes.

I have to confess my very favourite thing is buying a super soft cuddly toy for the new baby - in fact I bought more than one for little baby Phoebe!  This little cutie has been handmade by Claire at KnitnPurl.

Finally, there are so many different cards available on folksy that if you wanted to choose something completely different from the traditional style, then here you have a lovely handmade card from Jean at The Card Jeanie.

Handmade is best! Do click on the photos and have a browse in the seller’s shop.  You are certain to find that special gift you are looking for.  And enjoy all your new arrivals!
