Ode to the Homemade Baby Gift

Last week I found the cutest Homemade Baby Gift and had to make one for a Baby Brunch we had at my church over the weekend.
Jamie at It's All In The Details made a Diaper Cradle instead of a Diaper Cake and I think it's so much better!!  If you want to know how to make one then go check out her post!  She gives excellent instructions with photos!  And as long as you have fabric long enough to make the skirt, it's pretty easy to make!
(I only got a yard of fabric and it wasn't long enough!! I had to make two ruffles and tack them together.)

See? I was thrilled with how this turned out! I also made a burp cloth and onesie!

So I got to thinking....I've made a lot of Homemade Baby Gifts!!  It started when I saw a towel apron in a Martha Stewart magazine and some gussied up cloth diapers as burp cloths in a local boutique and thought
 "I can make that!"
And thus...Ode to the Homemade Baby Gift!

 *Diaper clutch!*

 *Diaper cake!*

These are most of what I've done.  I've also made a diaper bag,  blankets, and the covered wipes case! 
I can't help it! I like to be able to say "I made it!"
Makes it special.
And I can't wait to make another diaper cradle!!

See my Link Parties page...I just might link this up!
