Custom Orders: Baby Gifts by SweeterThanSweets on Etsy

I've recently been asked by a few friends to make some custom orders. I wanted to share them with you here because they won't be for sale in my shop. I love making things specifically for a customer and it gives me ideas of what people actually want to buy.

First, a photographer friend asked for a set of satin flower headbands for the newborns she photographs to wear. So fun! Little tiny new people will be wearing my creations in their baby pictures! I made the satin flowers with a clip on the back so that the headbands and flowers can be used interchangeably to match baby's outfit. I bought the headbands themselves from this Etsy shop (they are super soft and stretchy). I'll probably make another set available on my shop for other photographers or new mamas who can't get enough headbands for their baby girls. (Check out my other satin flower headbands here.)

Here's a baby shower gift set for a new baby boy, complete with a hooded towel set, two burp cloths, a onesie and a sensory circle blanket. I really loved making this set and another one with the same fabrics will be available soon. (A girl version, minus the blanket, is already for sale on my shop.)

Then I made a big sis/lil sis set for a friend of mine from elementary school who is having her second daughter soon. I just love pink, green & brown together!

And for a little boy who loves tractors and is turning 2 soon, a John Deere tractor shirt. The green and yellow background is actually made of felt, so it's soft to the touch. The back of the shirt has the John Deere logo appliqu├ęd at the top. This one actually will be for sale on my shop because my friend's little boy needs a short-sleeved shirt. A 1-year-old birthday shirt is already available online.
