LInks to the DIY accessories:

Tanya! You’re the best cousin ever! This is just so sweet, so amazing. I love it!  Thank you so much for sharing. I definitely need to add this to my DIY list for my nephew’s 3rd birthday. I love that you kept things neutral and included a set of ‘boyish’ accessories too…
