Small gifts

Our group of friends has grown recently with two new babies, so I made a set of small welcoming gifts for each of them.

The first item is a double gauze blanket. I know how useful these are for little babies, and this whale print was love at first sight. However, I discovered that sewing with double gauze is not easy – the fabric is extremely difficult to keep straight!!-.

Instead of wrapping the blanket with paper, I decided it would be more useful if the wrapping was something that could be used too. So I picked one of the patterns I have already sewn this year and made two waterproof bags with nylon fabric. One of them is already being used for carrying nappies!
