A Baby Gift


 
This weekend I was needing a quick baby gift, one that I could work on for a few minutes at a time at the machine. This little idea was perfect! I sat and cut out wool felt balloons of all different colors and cut these little blue flannel clouds. Of course the bag was just one of those $3 canvas totes that I already had in my stash from the craft store.
used colorful variegated thread throughout and I have forgot how much I love it! In short sessions at the machine, one little cloud or balloon at a time I actually finished a project!! Now that felt good! I forgot to get a picture of the inside, but I dropped in a little liner with two big pockets on one side (perfect for about three disposable diapers, and one of the little plastic wipe dispensers) and three small pockets on the other side (that would probably fit a cell phone and a few mom essentials well). The gift was for a baby boy and the bow was meant to look like a bow tie, Timothy and Ben thought that it looked a little bow-ish, but mama can remove it if she doesn't like it.

 

I wish I could have went to the shower, but it was out of the question today. I'm almost there friends! I've just got a little over a month left before I'm 37 weeks! Woot woot! I have another almost finished project to do now. I'm finishing up a knit cardigan for a shower next weekend. It's baby season here in Bama! I've got 6 more rows, and a few ends to weave in then I'll show ya that one too. I miss this! working on and sharing little projects with you all. I may go on a sewing binge when this baby gets here! xo, Sam

Love this idea. I'm always scrounging around for wrapping and gift bags. I should make of few of these to keep on hand. Thanks for this post. You are so clever.

So adorable! Isn't it so refreshing to finish a project? I have to admit though your wrapping is almost as cute as the bag=)What a brilliant idea to use material for a tag!
