baby gifts

This week I kept busy making an assortment of baby gifts for two new little boys - one born to my cousin and another to my husband's co-worker. I decided to make baprons and burp cloths for both of them, because both things have been so incredibly useful to us.

I used the burp cloth tutorial from the blog MADE. I have sewed up a whole bunch of these over the last couple of years, but I don't believe any of them have made it onto the blog. Quick, easy and really great for wiping spit-up and spills!

I've mentioned the bapron pattern before (here and here). I seriously love these and they get easier to sew each time I make them. I think by now I've made over a dozen!

The fabric is all from the Riley Blake Designs line Farm Fresh by October Afternoon. I found a bundle of fat quarters for a super good price at Tuesday Morning a couple of years ago and have been saving it for the perfect occasion (read: hoarding). I decided I should finally use it and I'm glad I did because these gifts turned out so cute.

Hope these come in handy and get lots of use!
