I realized that much of the gift would need to be homemade... as I wanted to pour my love into something special for this new little family. Finally, I found the perfect plans in the following book:
|One Yard Wonders by Patricia Hoskins & Rebecca Yaker|
I decided to sew an entire matching baby set.
I made a diaper/wipes clutch (with matching fold-out change pad).
I also made a small play blanket.
Lastly, I made a bib (and backed it with terry cloth... a special touch of my own creative, yet practical, flair).
I even found some cute little labels that say "Handmade" - which I attached to all of the items.
I loved making and giving these gifts to my wonderful friend and her beautiful baby girl. Yes - she had a girl!
Do you ever make homemade gifts?
