baby goods....and a birthday present

I've been crafty lately, finishing up some baby gifts for my youngest SIL.

Her baby boy came 3 weeks early so I had to play catch up!

Since she doesn't read blogs, I'm not worried about spoiling any surprises:

First, I made this blanket....which I finished before summer ended.



Then, I made this funky monkey rattle.....I purchased the pattern off etsy HERE....and it was totally worth it!

Isn't he CUTE!?



I also made one of the baby towels I like to give....sorry, I forgot to take a separate photo of it.


BTW, If you want to make one, the tutorial is HERE.
They are great (and are inexpensive) baby shower gifts.



After that, I finished up
this reversible pillow for a birthday gift...

One side shows a bright eyed kitten:




and the other side shows a sleepy kitten:



g'night kitty!

Love the monkey and the awake and asleep kitty pillow is almost 'vintage' cool looking. Love it!

i really wish I knew how to knit. I have a beginniers kit and a Dummys Guide to Knitting but getting started is confusing- the casting! I'm a visual learner and i do best if someone is there to show me the reigns and then I'm good from that point on!

Cute monkey! :O)
