My friend at work is due to leave on Thursday to have a baby, I wanted to make the new little one a pressie.

But, because she would NOT say what she was having until the week before last, it needed to be something quick (I only get weekends to craft, and I really wanted to make it boy/girly). So I'd remembered seeing a link on here to someones blog with a tute for a hooded baby towel, and I thought BINGO! (link here: http://www.prudentbaby.com/2009/10/diy-hooded-baby-towel.html), but as my friend has a filthy sense of humour, I wanted to make it not too gooey, and so I found this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339711.0.

And here we have it - two ideas successfully pilfered in one morning: thankies people!

An 'action shot' - popcorn the bear is substantially larger than a new born (well - i hope so, for her sakes, lol!)



laid out in full:



close up of the writing (it started off straight...?)




Overall, I'm fairly chuffed with it all, except the writing - I wanted child like, not childlike and wonky!!

Comments and criticisms are welcome, as always!

Thanx for looking! Grin

This is so cute. And I think the writing looks perfect. The curve adds whimsy.

I love this idea and need to make one. I love that you embroidered on the top or hat part. I'm sure she loved it.
