More Baby Gifts

 These are a few baby items I've made recently.  I love making baby things.  We have a grandson due this month and a great niece due in April.  Our dog groomer is also expecting a baby girl in February.  So there are plenty of babies to be creating for.  :) 

I made this smaller fleece blanket to cover him up while he's in his car seat.  It's fleece on both sides.  I laid the fleece out right sides together, rounded the corners (I used a paper plate), stitched round the outer edge, leaving a 5" opening for turning.  After turning, I pinned the whole closed and top stitched completely around.

 I love making these burp cloths.  They are a great size and so easy!  I used this pattern.  
 More burp cloths.  I also made matching washcloths.  Here is that tutorial.
 I love this blanket pattern!  It is very quick and easy.  The "cupcake" is made from the burp and wash cloths in the above picture.  I laid 2 of the wash cloths on top of the 2 burp cloths and folded in 1/2.  I then gathered the remaining wash cloth in my hand and laid it at one end and then rolled it up.  I sat it inside of a coffee filter and tied a bow around it.  I got the idea from Lil Pink Pocket.  She used a receiving blanket and washcloth, but my receiving blanket was too thick.
