Baby Gifts

It seems like everyone around me is having babies right now. I've kept myself busy this last week making gifts for all of them. I haven't been very good at taking pictures. It isn't till after I've already given the gifts away that I realize I never took a picture. Here are a few of the thing I remembered to grab a picture of before they went out the door.

I've made a lot of these tie onesies. Char at Crap I've Made , was nice enough to provide a PDF file HERE, that I download at least once a month.
I make a lot of flannel rag quilts too. They are the easiest and fastest thing to make, yet so cute. I love the birds in this one.
Another rag quilt and tie onesie. This quilt was actually made of vintage PJ pants that were never worn.
This was for my brothers new boy. He is a huge Ute fan. Since I'm to cheap to buy real sports apparel, I had to make my own. Using a red fleece jacket I just added the lettering.
It should fit him perfectly by the time football season starts.

Thanks for the good ideas. I have lots of baby gifts to make soon so this is right on target. Cute stuff!

I also love the rag quilts. Fun! Tessa has made a little doll-sized one. I just help with steering the fabric through the machine. Oh and the snipping because my scissors are dull. Scary.

PS, cute onesies! Maybe Louie needs a tie t-shirt for his upcoming birthday. Hm....

Those are adorable! I love the little tie onesie. I'm in the middle of making baby gifts this week, for a double shower tomorrow. Patchwork flannel rag quilt, flannel bibs, and fabric 1,2,3 blocks. I think I have to make a tie onesie for my little guy.

What size blocks or I guess strips did you use on your pink rag quilt? Everything looks so cute! Our ward is having a baby boom this summer, so I need to get to crafting too!
