Baby gifts for my Best Friend!!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a great day.
I've been working on making a gift bundle for my best friend from High School.
She just had her first baby on Friday.
She lives in Northern Ontario where we grew up.
I don't get to see her often.
Maybe only once or twice a year.
She is one of those friends that just knows me so well, and always accepts me the way I am. 
We are quite different, but so close......you know.
I had my kids so young, and she was out in University just having a great old time.
But she always made time for me. 
Now, that she has had her own baby, I'm just so excited.
She is going to be the best Mom.

These are the first few things I made for her bundle.

I made her a cuddle blanket, with cotton on one side and Cuddle Chenille on the other side.
It is oh...... so...... soft!!!!

I love these.
They are so cute and fun to make.
I made the dark pink one first.
I struggled a bit with the bias tape.
Then when I made the second one, 
I decided to open up the bias tape and sew it to the back first,
 then fold it over and sew it on the front. 
It looks much more professional that way.
That's how I'm going to do it from now on.

I still have a few things I want to make.
So stay tuned.

These are beautiful gifts! Your friend is sure to love them and treasure them for years. I have never seen the Bapron tutorial before, so thanks for the link to that. I will definitely be adding those to my list of baby shower gifts to give.
