Needlework Monday - Another Sweet Baby Gift From A Fellow Needleworker!

in needleworkmonday •  4 months ago


I am so excited to share some more beautiful handmade creations made for my baby. This special gift was sent to me all the way from Panama from @apanamamama! She and I instantly connected when meeting here on Steemit almost a year ago and have supported each other’s work every since.

I was so excited when she told me she was planning to make my daughter a pair of Quilted Baby Cowgirl Boots! When I first saw the pair she made 9 months ago I was in love with them! She asked me what color I wanted to go with the jean material and I picked my favorite color pink. I had fun taking pictures of these...



Do you see the cute frog material inside?




Of course the baby had to model them!

These boots are so adorable and I love them on her!



There was more in my package! She also made this adorable custom made birth cloth. She embroidered her name with a heart around it. I couldn’t show that part because we don’t share our children’s names on social media.


I absolutely love this beautiful trimming around it!

It’s so pretty that I don’t want to use it lol! I at least wanted to wait to post about it first. We’re going to get some good use out of it, it’s so thick and sturdy!



Guess what? She even sent a gift for me!! 😃 I absolutely LOVE this necklace! It symbolizes my purpose here as a Christian. The lightbulb symbolizes being a light in this dark world and letting it shine so all can see. The glass of salt symbolizes that we are the salt of this earth. It comes from the scriptures in Matthew...

Matthew 5:13-16 -

[13] Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
[14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
[15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
[16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Thank you so much @apanamamama for these lovely keepsake gifts!! I truly adore them!

What lovely gifts! @apanamamama you did a wonderful job!


They truly are!! She did such a wonderful job! Thank you @violetmed!

Yea! Thanks for sharing my gifts! I'm so glad you like them and happy to see the boots on those baby feet!!! :) I love how girlie they look. Thanks so much for posting a pic of her in them! They'd look cute hanging from your rear view mirror some day. ;) Ha. That was so common to see in Mexico - baby booties hanging from the mirror. I think it was for good luck or something... Anyway, enjoy that sweet baby today!!


Absolutely!! I HAD to share this special gift with everyone!! I couldn’t let them miss out on seeing them! 😄

I knew you would like to see them on her! They fit her really well.

Good idea because I don’t want to pass these on to anyone! We’ll be having baby booties hanging from our mirror too! 😃

Thanks again for our special made with love gifts~ 💗😘

I thought the blue denim and red calico ones I saw originally were as cute as they come. But these may have edged them out by a nose. They are just perfect for a little girl.


Haaa I thought the same thing! I’m like wow now I’m even more in love with these boots! 😄 They are absolutely adorable!! ❤️

Thanks so much for viewing and commenting!! 😘

It's so cute & adorable... Now, I really wished I had a baby girl to dress her up .. ha ha


Haaa! I admit it’s a lot of fun dressing her up! She’s my little doll. ☺️

These shoes are so cute and a beautiful gift. There are so many wonderful details, the cute lining, and the zig-zag at the top and the sewn curves on the boot: amazing. Also, the necklace - wow @apanamamama. It is so personal and special.


I love all of the details as well. She really put her special touch on these items! 😊

it's very nice of her !!!! Gorgeous things !!!! it's good that you wrote about the frogs: I did not notice them at first.


Yes it really was nice of her! Oh great I’m glad I could make you aware of them. I thought the lining was so cute that I wanted to highlight it.

Wow it's soo pretty, so personal and very well customised. Baby modelled the boots really well the birth cloth is so beautiful and I love your necklace @crosheille and what it stands for. Thanks @apanamamama for your thoughtful gift.

Haaaa!! I’m so glad to have a second girl. My daughter really wanted a sister because she has three brothers lol!

My sweet friend @apanamamama made these items for me. I can only crochet because I have yet to master sewing ;)

Thanks for stopping by and supporting ~


im jealous!!! hahahaha i dont know if I could have a girl.. im more scared of the pain hahaha, it seems that the level of pain each birth is increasing.. i dont think i can take that again..


I understand. Giving birth definitely requires a mental strength that some women don’t think they have. You can do it!! Our bodies were made for it!! 😉


Oh yes! Our life depends on it too.. its a 50-50 kind of ordeal..
