Baby Gift For A Friend

**Originally posted on my sewing blog on 1/28/10.

I sewed a simple reversible tote bag and two matching burp cloths for a friend who is expecting a baby boy soon.

This was my first successful attempt at simple applique.  It helps when you can easily sew through the interfacing! Ahem... It was very easy to do and I think it all turned out pretty cute!

I used the letter templates and directions for applique from Skip To My Lou and the burp cloths were made following Tracy's instructions. The bag tutorial was also from Skip To My Lou even though I changed the dimensions. I've made many basic tote bags over the past few years and her directions are almost identical to the ones I've made on my own. All three items were completed in an evening.

Baby items are always so much fun to make. I thoroughly loved and enjoyed my time spent sewing this gift! I know Baby 'A' and his mama will get plenty of use out of it!
