Riddle me this...

My husband's friend is having her first kid. I haven't met her, but the hubby talks about how good of a person she is... So! I made her a fabulous (in my eyes) baby basket. They don't know the sex, so I stuck to a light purple and seafoam color.
I linked everything below, but I made modifications as I did them. Smiley


The whole thing together: a shell stitch baby blanket, pacifier and sippy cup leashes, teething ring (Dollar Store), a TY beanie baby zebra, and a DIY baby book scrapbook.


My first blanket. I do a ton of crochet (dolls, bags, whatever), but I feel like blankets just take eternity!
Link from here.


The outside of the book is pretty boring... Lilac card stock, dutch and hurley font (from dafont), Illustrator guides...

Example of pages inside. The original has PDF and Word documents available...
I modified their ideas, put them in Illustrator with the fonts that I wanted, then used a paper cutter to cut it all into 8x8 squares.


Sippy cup leash, link here.


Pacifier leash, link here.

One of my friend's is also pregnant, so I'll update when I find out what she's having so I can craft! Smiley

What a very kind bundle of goodies for someone you don't even know.
