My favorite gift for new babies

We had another new niece born to our extended family.  I made yet another Pod Swaddler, for her.  I so wish that Hannah had thought this up when my baby was still a baby. 


My favorite part of this blanket is that it isn't too hot, yet baby is snug.  It has lots of room, and will work for a good part of baby's first year.

I absolutely love the floral fabric.  The pops of red and turquoise look so pretty.  I found the fabric on clearance at fabric.com.  They were closing out several lines of Westminster/Free Spirit fabrics.  This particular one was designed by Verna Mosquera and is called Savon Bouquet. 
If you want some other fun ideas for baby gifts, here are a few of my tutorials to try:

What a cool idea...I swaddled my kids burrito style (they wanted to be swaddled until almost thirteen months)...and I am not sure how this would have worked for them but for lots of kids this would be perfect!!
