Easy, Handmade Baby Gifts
Today's edition of Works for Me Wednesday sponsored by Rocks in My Dryer is about baby gifts.
Now I don't know about you, but I go to a LOT of baby showers. And it is customary to bring a gift to every shower. Averaging $10 a shower (for a cheap gift) gets expensive fast. What to do?
Well, I picked up a hobby I learned when I was a kid. Crocheting. Add a little older-and-wiser mathematical knowledge and voila!
Easy, unique, and special baby blankets! With some mathematical help from my handsome husband, I created the crochet pattern for these blankets and I think they turn out pretty well! (The pink and blue blankets pictured are for a set of twins :)
Plus, they are soft, cuddly, machine wash/dryable, and they make babies happy! As evidenced by Evan modeling for me:
Sweet and special - hey that works for me!
