Baby Gift

I needed a baby gift for a Christening on Sunday. I just found out about it today so I don't have much time (nor money thanks to the Tokyo vacation we just returned from!). I had made these bibs several months ago but just never added the finishing stitches on them until now. They are made from shirts and baby towels that I picked up from Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. The towel is on the back to give the bib absorbency. I actually intended on using them for Ryland but like I said...I never finished them (big problem of mine!). I also made a boo boo baggie that I filled with wheat which is supposed to hold heat and cold better than rice. I just need to come up with a clever little poem to put on gift card for it. By the way...some of you reading this right now are going to be receiving this for Christmas so act surprised when I give it to you! ;-P The baby toy was on sale for $1.35 so if you think about it, that's all I spent on a gift! I already had the other stuff on hand so add rattle and voila....cheap yet personal gift. I love re-using and re-purposing items. It makes me feel like I'm doing my small part to protect the environment. Ok so maybe a really, really small part but at least it's a start!
