Giving a new mother a hand made personalized gift is always a cherished gesture. It can be hard if you are not crafty to make a personalized gift, but it doesn't have to be. There are many ways you can personalize a baby pillow case.
First you might be surprised at the amount of fabrics baby pillow cases come in. You can find them in any material you can imagine from satin to chenille. Since for the baby's safety the pillow will not be in the crib with them your gift will most likely be a decorative gift, at least until the baby gets older, so take that into consideration while you are making a decision about fabric.
Now you can personalize this baby pillowcase in any number of ways including using appliqué or embroidery. You can find patterns to do this in any design online or you can buy a book of patterns at your local fabric store.
If doing it yourself is not really feeling comfortable you can always search for someone else to create your personalized gift by hand. You can search online for people who will custom make your pillowcase. There are even specialized websites, like etsy.com, where you can find artisans who do these type of crafts.
You can also buy an embroidery kit, with a design you like that is appropriate for a baby. Instead of using the fabric included in the kit you can choose a nice baby pillow case to put your embroidered design on.
There are many options you can choose when trying to make a personalized baby pillow case. You can do it yourself, hire someone to do it for you, or find one that is already made. No matter which way you decide to create your personalized baby pillow case remember it's the gift that counts and a personalized homemade gift will always be much appreciated.
