I didn't keep every part of her gift a complete surprise....I let her pick out the fabric. I'm glad she picked this fabric from Riley Blake because I had been "eying" it for a while!
I wanted to put together some sort of gift set for her. At first, I was trying to make something that played off the idea of a diaper cake....except with burp cloths, onesies, and a blanket. I couldn't ever get it to match the "picture" that I had in my head. My 5 year-old commented on how she liked the "basket" I was making out of the blanket! So....the end result............
I started off with a blanket with a soft orange minky on the back:
I even added some fun stitching around the edges:
I also included 4 coordinating burp cloths, 2 outfits (not made by me), 2 ribbon pacifier clips, and a monogrammed onesie and baby cap with his name on it on top!
I had so much fun putting this together! This kind of gift set can be customized to include any of my handmade items. I also have a few more ideas for bundling things together for gifts so keep watching for those!
