Making things for a new baby!

Grace and I are going to a family baby shower tomorrow. My niece Jana is going to have a baby in December.   As you know I babies, and especially love making baby things, so a baby shower is a fun time to make some nice soft and cuddly gifts for a new baby.

A couple of weeks ago, I used this tutorial to make a taggie lion for my niece's new baby.  It's just too cute.  Well, I couldn't resist, I made another taggie lion for this new baby too.  Whether its a girl or a boy, I'm sure the baby will love the feel of all those ribbons.   The baby won't have any idea that some of these ribbons are recycled... 

I also used Natalia's tutorial to make a couple of self-binding receiving blankets.  Even though they are square receiving blankets, I've folded them to show that they can be used as swaddling blankets.  They are made out of two layers of flannel so you can imagine how soft and and cuddly they are.   And since I had the ribbons out, I made a couple of regular taggie blankets to include in the gift package.

Hmmm, I wonder what she'll have.... a Girl or a Boy!!
