These simple door hangers are a big hit. They are a perfect little extra something to include in gift baskets or even hand out at the hospital. New mothers really love the dual messages for breastfeeding in progress or simple, quiet please. And they are thin enough to slip in a purse and take to the office, gatherings, grandma’s house, anywhere the need arises.

When my daughter was born the most precious gifts we as new parents got were handmade items, and those were the ones that went into the memory box. Every now and then I look at them and feel the same joy again. When my friend had her first baby I knitted a cardigan for the little one in a larger size because I remember how quickly newborns tend to grow out of their adorable clothes. When I witnessed how happy this new mother was I knew that I wanted to knit similar items for my store. That’s how this cardigan came to life (perfect for a 6 to 12 months old baby), adorned with a little sheep because sheep are just adorable, right? And would we as knitters do without them?

It’s never too early to plan your children’s keepsakes and your precious memories in style. We offer several toothbox designs, can substitute any font we have available, and include a gift pouch perfect for preventing anything from being lost. Don’t let your teeth be lost in the sheets, place the toothbox in the pouch included and attach it to a stuffed animal to make sure it is right where you left it when the time comes to be discrete! #ToothFairyDuty
