Baby Gifts

I've been working as fast as I can to get some baby gifts done before I left this area. I have some great friends that I wanted to give gifts too. I hope that they like them.
I love making hair bow holders, especially when I already have all of the supplies in my stash. I think it is a great gift for little girls. Check out my other one that I made for my neice, Allie.
This is a baby girl wipe container. I just used my hot glue gun and attached padding. I then sewed two pieces of scrap fabric together and then hot glued it to the outside of the case. I then got some good ribbon (the thicker the ribbon the better it looks) and glued it around the edges. The back looks the same except it doesn't have the padding. To get more specific instructions go to Make Your Own Baby Stuff.
This is the baby boy wipe container. I did it the same way except I used a dark blue fabric on the bottom instead of having the same polka dot fabric.
This is my first attemp to make a "W" pillow for little baby William. I used one of the patterns that I got but I'm not very happy with how it turned out. I will have to keep working on it and see if I can improve with the pattern.
I had a bunch of diapers that I tried to use up with Alex but wasn't able too. So the next best thing to do with them is make a diaper cake as a gift. I also have a container of wipes and a bottle stuffed inside.
