Handmade Baby Shower Gifts

It's baby time! I have a baby shower to attend for a little boy. I struggled on what to make. Decided to make a taggie blanket, plus a baby bib and burp cloths I found on Pinterest. I dug through my massive collection of scrap fabric and found a bundle of fat quarters I purchased years ago. LOVED how they all turned out.

Here's a closer view of each:

I altered the bib pattern from Chickpea studio by adding a contrasting fabric to the bottom:

I didn't have enough fabric to make a continuous top, so I had to piece it together.

I've been making taggie blankets for years. Just used left over fabric from the burp cloths and miscellaneous ribbon I had lying around. Lined it with flannel. Cute, right?

And these are the burp cloths. I've made these from scratch and lined them with terry cloth in the past. This was so much easier! Simply sewed fabric to cloth diapers. Now why didn't I think of this before?
