baby shower gift

baby shower laundry basket gift Tutorial & Printable

I wanted to share the gift I took because I am so happy with how it turned out.  It got a great reaction from everyone at the shower and yet it was so easy to put together!  In anticipation of the laundry increase she and her husband are about to experience I put together a new baby laundry basket, complete with a little decorative wash line!

The laundry basket came from the Dollar Tree and was the perfect size to hold some laundry necessities.  Here are some items you could include if you make your own baby shower gift:

  • Baby Laundry Detergent
  • Hangers
  • Clothespins
  • Blanket
  • Clothes (I put in a cute Pajama set)
  • Socks
  • Towel or Washcloths

But what really pulls it all together is the miniature clothes line.  It was so easy too!  I used small wooden dowels and tied them to the side of the basket using ribbon.  Then I tied some baker’s twine between the dowels and hung up some socks with mini clothespins.

I made the tag and then created three different colors to share with you so you can use the tag for a boy, girl, or when it is a surprise! (you can download them at the end of this post 😊)

The PDF download has all 3 colors included- blue, pink, and yellow.  If you put together a similar gift and use the tags please send me a picture!  I love to see your own creativity at work!
