Baby Gifts

I have been busy with handwork. I love to do blanket stitch, its calming for some reason.

DD bought this baby fleece at Joann's and I blanket stitched all around it for a baby gift for someone in SIL's family. I buy flannel remmants and make a bunch of burp cloths and save them for when we need a baby gift. She will add three of these to the blanket for her gift. She doesn't sew herself but sure likes to give handmade gifts! LOL

Those burp cloths are precious. You said they are flannel? Did you use 2 pieces then, and then blanket stitch between the 2? Did you have a particular pattern for the cloth or make your own? I was think those WOULD make great baby gifts. I love handmade gifts, as well. So much nicer. More personal.
