gifts for a babe

 

Back in November, a good friend of mine told me she was pregnant. Being the crafty person I am, I immediately started thinking of things to make for the baby. When she found out it was a boy, I started getting more specific ideas in my head. I sent about 5000 screenshots of fabrics and blankets and bibs to my friend to make sure I was on track with her style and then I got to researching and making. 

I decided to go for useful, simple, and really cute but not babyish. The photos really speak for themselves, so here's what I made. 

Bibs (pattern slightly modified from The Purl Bee)

Pillowcases (simple envelope-style pillowcases with French seams; pillow form from Bed, Bath, and Beyond)

Quilt (pattern adapted from Quilty Love; I'll write up my own measurements and tutorial next week)

I can't wait to see the little one using it all!
