bought lil man's first Teddy etc

Last night me and my DH went to the store to each pick out something for our lil man. First of all let me say aside from lil onesies I will not be shopping at walmart for boy clothes.. OMG they are all so ugly.. Perhaps it is just this one location but wow I was surprised.. Boooooo Of course they had some really cute things for little girls. We did find a few things though and spend quite a bit. My favorite is a lil onesie that says MAN OF THE HOUSE.. too cute.. we purchased a few matching onesies, bibs and hats, Tiger baby blanket and a part of adorable shoes. My DH looked so cute picking out his first gift and it was a Teddy bear.. so cute.. when he got home my silly DH took an outfit and put it on the teddy bear. (practicing lo) Well I thought I ‘d share my ever so interesting visit to walmart Smile Going to Carters next Smile

Yeah, I only really get white onesies and sometimes some stretchy pants for Ronan there- so I have to agree with you! Sounds like DH is so ready to be a daddy! CUTE Smile

ya, I always had a hard time finding little boy clothes. I felt so mad because there was always a ton of cute girl ones. Why don't people know that boy mommas like cute clothes too!??!

Thanks Ladies..

I am going to try Kohls and Carters a little later on Smile I have a lot of girls and boys clothes but we wanted to pick something special for the lil man.
Elin: DH is ready but he is also a kid himself.. put it this way.. I also call him Goof alot.. but I mean it with LUV Smile

Amanda: I was just shocked.. I hated everything.. so ugly.. Like I mentioned above I plan to try Kohl’s and Carters later on.. I first need to get my things out of storage to see what I even have still. I bought a lot of cute things about 5 years ago. Hard to believe it’s been that long.

The only thing more frustrating than trying to find cute boy clothes anywhere (esp WalMart) is trying to find boy sewing patterns. I love to sew and the books are full of beautiful outfits for girls, but little to nothing for boys. On a whim (just in case, kwim?) I checked while at the fabric store today. UGH! And the older they get the worse it gets.

Kohl's does have some cute outfits, as does Target sometimes. Kmart did last time I was in one, but its 45 min away, so that's been a few months. Sears too, though they sell a lot of the same stuff as Kmart.

If you're just doing a blanket you should be fine. Our Walmart still has fabric (only fabric store for 25-30 miles) and I got the cutest monkey fabric today. Liesel informed me that the baby cannot have her Pooh Bear quilt. So she helped me find something she thought a boy or girl might like. I'm a quilter. If you want to try your hand at it its actually really easy to find beginners patterns. Or just look at the home dec section of the Simplicity pattern catalogue. They've got all sorts of nursery set patterns.

The practical side of me says start slow and don't be too hard on yourself. But I'm one of those crafters who jumps in over her head and just frantically paddles till I figure it out. I did it with knitting too, both with mixed results. Just don't be afraid of your seam ripper. It is your friend and will help you undo all sorts of oopsies. Think of it like a little pink pet eraser. Either way, don't be hard on yourself because in the end the only one who will notice most if not all your mistakes is you.

This is a good time of year for consignment and yard sales. Buying all brand new stuff is really silly (And expensive!), IMO. Especially since they grow so fast and stuff gets stained, etc...
