Bears, Beards, and Snails

My husband’s and my friends are getting ready to welcome their first baby, a boy, this fall. I got a super early start on their baby gift because who knows what I will have time for once school and soccer season start back up again in a few weeks.

Here’s a look at the whole package.barry and bianca's baby gift 005

This is a travel changing pad made with laminated fabric on the outside and fuzzy terry cloth on the inside. I didn’t get a picture of it opened up, but it has a pocket on the inside to hold a diaper or two and a small pack of wipes.

The onesie, bib, and burp cloth are all coordinating with cute snail fabric.

The crocheted bear hat is my favorite and was a breeze to whip up. It only took an hour from start to finish.

My husband specifically requested that I make a bearded beanie as a funny addition to the package. I found a great tutorial here:

This is a picture from her blog post so you can get an idea of what it looks like with a baby in it. SO STINKIN’ FUNNY!

I used a receiving blanket to wrap it all up in and it’s ready to be put in the mail.
