Precious Baby Gift Making...

Aww!  Who can resist a chubby babe, so precious and new...? 
I love hearing of a momma expecting her first, second, or even sixth baby...

It is a joy indeed to create something lovely and special for the new one,
and I was blessed to have the opportunity of working with pretty girly fabric and
my sewing machine this week...

~
 As it is always exciting trying something new, I decided to attempt a fabric covered 
hanger and pretty little bag and matching heart...


Nancy, who loves crochet, agreed to crochet a lovely lacey edge for the bag and also made a pretty length of chain stitch to tie as a ribbon around the hook of the hanger...

 
My dear mother got out her knitting needles and made this adorable baby beanie from gorgeous soft baby pink wool...she added a crocheted flower and a cute button...

 
Mom also decided to try make baby mittens...she lined them with the same fabric I used for the hanger so as to create a sweet set of goodies!  So fluffy and sweet...


Of course I just had to make a card!  {{Smiles}}  How I love pearls, pink and...buttons! 


...And then Nancy and I had fun wrapping the gift...we went with a similar idea to this one, but stamped pink hearts on the kraft paper box and tied a broad pink ribbon around the box, adding a little tag...


And what gift would be complete without lace...


  Do pop by again, sweet friends...I have a little tutorial planned for sometime soon...would like to know how I created this padded fabric hanger...?  
It was a delight to make...in fact, I made a few more for my sisters!  {{Smiles}}
 

~ Blessings on your Wednesday, friends! ~

Hello, dear Kelly~Anne!!
I finally had a chance to look at your blog from our library :)
I have missed it so much!
This post is so very lovely and inspiring as I am expecting two baby nieces this winter and was wondering what to make for them.
I love the idea of baby mittens, and the beanie is so sweet.
You ladies all did a wonderful job....I know the mommy and baby will be so pleased....
Also I received your beautiful letter ( my first from S.Africa...yay! )the other day and it was the highlight of my week. Thank you dear friend, and I will be sending one your way soon.
Hugs and blessings from Ashleigh

Oh my goodness, I'm really impressed with all the lovely gifts you, your sister and mother made. Your mother is an impeccable knitter - Yes, I clicked to enlarge the photo and examined the stitches! Beautiful. I love knitting and enjoy seeing what others have made. The mittens are so cute, too.
I also love the darling hanger and bag. What a gorgeous set for a newborn and her mom to enjoy.
Have a lovely week!
