The "Deluxe" Baby Gift Set: Complete!

Since I had Dean, my favorite baby gift set to give is a large wrap blanket, 2 burp cloths, and a tag blanket. (Basic tutorial here, though I modified some of the measurements this time around.) These were some of my favorite and most used items that we received.

My sister-in-law is due with a baby boy a week or two before me, and since it's been 13 years since their last baby (don't worry, this baby was planned!), they're starting from scratch again. So, I decided I'd make a "deluxe" gift set. I was really excited with how this all turned out (and that I'm finished so I can now move on to my next project...hehe).

Items in the set:
  • double sided large flannel wrap blanket
  • single sided large flannel wrap blanket (for the hot summer months)
  • hooded bath towel (tutorial here...thanks V!)
  • tag blanket (I made this larger this time and I like it better. pre-sewn measurements are 16"X17")
  • 2 burp cloths (gerber cloth diapers embelished. I did a horizontal stripe on the bottom rather than the vertical in my original tutorial.)

WOW!! That really is deluxe. Whatever I seem is going to be peanuts compared to all that hard work and cuteness. Good job.

No, no. I just get a bit over excited sometimes! They'll be appreciative of anything, I'm sure. When you start from scratch, everything is a happy welcome!

Very cute! I like the next project too - it looks beautiful but nice and simple :) I wanted to tell you that Rex has taken to claiming Ruth's blanket (the one that you made for her) as his favorite blanket - even above the one I've had him sleep with since he was a baby! He loves it.

Leeth, I'm so glad to hear that! I often wonder how those blankets have held up! I'm pretty sure yours was the very first quilted quilt I ever made.

That is really so cute! Can I hire you to make one for me? For a gift of course! I still love that really neat blanket you made for Lily it is so nice, you are so talented!

Les, if I had an etsy shop, I'd probably charge $85-115 for this particular set depending on fabric and towels that I use.
