So I have a little dilemma…I want to choose a signature newborn prop–something I use for every newborn session and leave behind for you to remember me by…I actually try to leave something behind at every session, but in this case I want to pick one, special signature prop for newborns.
So for my little newborn girls, I’ve already decided to leave behind a teeny, tiny pair of shoes–a) because I love shoes, b) because it’s so hard to find super-cute newborn shoes, c) because it emphasizes just how teeny tiny your little one was, and d) because Jessica at Joyfolie was kind enough to teach me how to make them at last year’s Makerie crafting retreat and though I’m sworn to secrecy on the techniques of their making, and agreed not to sell them, I suppose I can give them away
So here’s little Miss Sunny Sidney’s shoes (in a beautiful shade of yellow) that I packaged up with her CD and left for her:
But I’m not sure what to do for my newborn boys…it has to be something I can make, or can easily learn to make…some things I came up with were teeny little crowns in fun prints, tiny ties, or a little quilt…sadly my knitting and crochet skills are limited, so I’m not sure if I can manage a knitted hat or blanket (though if it’s a simple hat or blanket, I may be able to learn).
Anyways, what would you all like to see as far as a boyish newborn prop? Leave a comment below and let me know what you’d like to see!
