I have had a few baby gifts to make recently. For two new little girls, cute Black Apple Dolls. I decided to make them bigger, so I enlarged the original pattern by 200% and I think they are a cute size. I used all scraps for this project-extra drop-cloths for the faces and arms, leftover felt for the hair and leftover Starboard skirt fabric for the bodies. I found some cute tags online (I didn’t save the source, anyone recognize them?) and the gifts are done.
A cute, but inexpensive gift for a girl of any age!
And for a baby boy that is on the way, a self-binding receiving blanket.
I did add a bit of white jumbo ric rac inside the self-binding edge to give it a little pizzazz and I liked it. The fabric is some that I already had (Michael Miller, I believe) and so all I bought was the jumbo ric rac.
It would have cost me more if I didn’t have the fabric, so keep that in mind. If you buying everything, it’s probably more around a $15 gift.
Now I just have to deliver them! (Does anyone else have gifts in their car for awhile before they can get mailed or delivered—I am notorious!
