This week I had the enjoyable task
of making, packaging, and mailing baby gifts
to two different families of friends who are both
eagerly awaiting the arrival of Baby #3.
First I finished this scrappy flannel quilt
featuring all sorts of critters: frogs, bugs, and lizards.
(I already had the quilt top sewn together, so it was a quick finish.)
I also decided to embellish a coordinating pale green onesie
by using fabric paint to free-hand little bugs
that almost perfectly mimic the bugs in one of the prints in the quilt.
I'm pretty tickled with how it turned out.
The second gift began with a simple, two-sided flannel blanket
made with pretty pastel purple and green fabrics.
To round out the gift, I added a coordinating bib and hat
I love being able to celebrate new little arrivals!
