Last Minute Baby Gift.

I was reminded this afternoon of a baby shower being held for my daughters dance teacher, after class tonight. There was no way I could get to a store before then, so I threw together this gift.
Luckily I try to have new onesies on hand. I added little knit ruffles to the sleeves and neckline.
I also made a little hat to match. It was the first time I made a hat for a baby. I was like a mad woman trying it on anything that looked like the size of a baby's head. I hope it works. You can find my tutorial for the hat HERE.

This post cracks me up because most of the world would say, "There was no way I could MAKE something in time." But you did a great job! I love the turquoise for a girl. :)
