One of my best friends is about to have her first child.  Though she's also getting a gift off her registry, I love having something personal (and homemade) to toss in.  (They're always the most loved anyway, right?)

1.  Baby bib



I used a premade bib that I picked up for a few bucks at a craft store and stitched the pattern (purchased from http://www.subversivecrossstitch.com/).  It took only a couple of hours or so to finish up.

2. Pumpkin hat



This was made on a Knifty Knitter (the child sized loom) and a spool loom and by following Brenda Myer's pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knifty-knitter-pumpkin-hat  I used leftover bulky weight yarn--and the whole thing knitted up in a hour.  Quick and cute!
