Newborn Baby Kits

I've been working on making some newborn baby kits, that are being sent down to Peru (I think) They are going to be given to the women when they have a baby so they have the basic necessities that they will need for their newborns. My mother in law got the sleepers, socks and soap. I put together the cloth diapers, onesies, diaper pins, and made some of the items. This brings me to what I want to share with you. I made this flannel blanket, burp cloth, and bib. I just used a burp cloth and bib I had to make my pattern. They were really easy to do. I have a boy themed one to make for the second kit, it has little animals on it.
I got to play around with cool stitch functions on my sewing machine and chose this one to topstitch with. It's like a wavy vine with leaves, so cute.
And.....I can't help but share....check out the new flooring in my craft room. My hubby and I put it down on Saturday. Took about 5 hours to do, that includes clearing out the room and putting on the baseboard. I love it. Now I just need to stay perfectly organized so it doesn't get cluttered again. Notice I didn't include the desktop in the picture!!!!! Yea, that's cuz it's covered with stuff. I am on a mission to organize, because I feel way more inspired when things are nice and neat.

I love how you finished off the edges! How cute! Wish my sewing machine could do that! That is seriously adorable! Are you selling these sets?
