Etsy Baby Shower

I recently signed up to participate in the Etsy Baby Shower. Basically a bunch of expecting moms sign up to receive gifts from Etsy stores that carry baby products. Then Etsy stores sign up to donate gifts to these moms. Each mom gets 4 gifts (usually from 4 different stores) and each Etsy shop can sign up to give as many gifts as they want. I signed up to give 4 gifts and I got 3 moms (one set of boy/girl twins!!!). Throughout the process the Etsy Baby Shower organizers promote the shops participating kind of as a thank you for donating. Here is a Treasury that I’ve been featured in:

Last night I started working on my gifts. I bought this adorable baby hat pattern about a month ago and I finally gave it a try. I think it turned out adorable! The sizes from the pattern are a little large for a newborn, so I’m going to try and scale down the pattern for my gifts. I’ll post updates as I make the gifts for the cuties I’ve been assigned. Here’s a pic of the first hat I made:

I used corduroy for the outside, jersey cotton for the lining, and a scrap of suede for the argyle patch. Let me know what you think!


  1. love it!! need a model for your pics?? ;) ps...this is amy but apparently brian's gmail is signed in...oops!

  2. Haha, I was confused there for a sec. I do need a model, this hat is sized 1T-2T I think, would that fit him?

  3. I love the hat - maybe pink for a little girl? You just keep getting better and better!

  4. Thanks Mom! I am going to try out a girly fabric this weekend :)
