Baby Gifts

by Julie Hirt

Don’t you just love making baby gifts?  A friend of mine just had a sweet little baby girl named Beatrice Birdie.  Is that not the cutest name ever?

I already knew I was going to send her the Superstar quilt with the crochet edges if she had a girl.  But that didn’t seem like enough so I added a couple of burp cloths.


Then I decided with a middle name like Birdie I just had to make an applique onesie:



THEN I decided she needed a new bib as well.  (I could seriously go crazy making baby things)

This is the smallest patchwork I’ve worked with, they are 1″ squares. Now I really appreciate all those teeny tiny patchwork pieces I see.


The backing of the bib and burp cloth are white cotton chenille. I find it washes up really nicely and actually absorbs quite a bit.


Now I’m finally happy with the gift and it’s in the mail!

What is your favorite baby item to make and give?
