my brother and SIL have been "forced" to hold a baby shower. we'd like to inject a little horse theme into the baby's life with a horsey gift. they're all into recyclable and reusable but i'm sure they wouldn't object to a little onesie with a horse theme to accompany the $ gift.
i've googled but i'm getting some really idiotic search returns. anyone have a good source? i'd prefer it were organic cotton.
I second Foaling Around! She was wonderful to work with - I had a baby blanket made for my soon to be arriving great nephew - horsey themed! I got to choose the fabric and style, very reasonably priced, and sent with a gift card.
An FYI to any DIY Cothers-
It's really easy to make cute onesies. There are all sorts of iron-ons and patches to put on the front of them. You can buy a package of 5 onesies for about $10 and the iron-ons are about $2 each. I found the cutest My Little Pony iron-ons yesterday because of this thread! Now I just have to find something to use them on.
Why anyone would want to subliminally suggest to a wee one to love horses beats me - don't they know that these kids grow up to want ponies, ride and show, and that the closest you will come to a horse is on the ground with a towel tucked into your back pocket as a show-mum, or in the back picking up manure. Mine stole my horse right from under me! There go the $$$$...my fault, though, for putting them in Pony Club to begin with.
Old Navy had some really cute stuff awhile back, don't know if they still do or how easy it would be to find.
DO NOT BUY 0-3 MONTH CLOTHING!!!!
Unless the baby is a premie, they might get 1 month out of that size, and the clothes are so cute everyone buys them. So parents end up with TONS of 0-3 and nothing for 6-9, 9-1, etc.
(except us... had to give clothes away 3 times now, not complaining though!)
If you HAVE to because it's so cute, buy one little 0-3, then buy them something they can actually use .
