OH ....BABY!

OH ....BABY!
If you remember from my last post
I was working on a baby gift
for my niece.
The baby was delivered by
C-Section on August 20th.
We are so excited ...it
was a little girl!
(I don't have any photo's of her yet!)
But, in the meantime ...I thought
I'd share my finished gift!
I crocheted this adorable Bath Set.
It consists of a 100 % cotton hooded
bath towel and two little washcloth's.

The bath towel is about 25" x 25", and
each little washcloth is about 8".

I love how it turned out. The
crochet stitch makes it very
thick and soft. Perfect for
baby's bath time.
And, of course ...
since I now know it's a girl!
I had to make this ....

A little brown beanie with
a huge pink flower!
(Since I don't have a little baby
at home ...I used the next best thing!)



Don't you just love this pink flower?
It just shouts 'LITTLE GIRL'!
*****
Finally ...it's all in the details!
The wrapping!

I always try to use a see-through
cupcake box if I can when
wrapping up baby gifts.
Using a cupcake box makes a
great way to wrap gifts!


I adorned it with the perfect
little stick on design!
And, a nice satin ribbon.

And, finally attached a cute little
brown envelope with a little
message tucked inside!
*****
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my
baby gift. I know there were lots
of pic's, but I just couldn't help it!
It turned out so cute!
Now ...if I can just get my
hands on a photo or two of
the new baby!

Oh, Mommy is going to LOVE it! I know how I felt opening a beautiful gift like this from you (actually quite a few baby gifts from you!!) and I went bonkers! It's so beautiful it's going to be hard to open. And when it's open... WOW! You do beautiful work!

What a sweet gift...
and the wrapping is as precious as the pretties inside!

I want a cute hat with a pretty pink rose on it!
:-)

Enjoy your day

Alice, I never thought of crocheting a hooded towel. What a great idea! The way you wrapped it up in the cupcake box is an idea I will have to "borrow" from you. What an absolutely adorable present and presentation!
