A few weeks ago, I attended a close friend's baby shower. The happy couple is expecting a baby girl and I created some special handmade gifts for them.
My friend likes anything nautical themed, so I made a nautical navy and pink quilt. My favorite part of it is the fabric with the seals. It's called "French Seals"- they're wearing striped shirts and berets.
I also made burp cloths. These were super easy- I used chenille fabric backed with a fun cotton fabric. I cut rectangles, sewed the right sides together, flipped them so the right sides were out, and then top stitched the edges. I love the little hearts and stripes fabric.
The last item I made is a blanket. This one has a patchwork quilt top and is backed with soft minky fabric. There's no batting, so the blanket can be used year-round.
Do you enjoy making DIY gifts?
