Well, I think Im done, I added a few sewn items to the box yesterday since there was so much extra room, I had to fill the box to max capacity of course, my oldest friend, Ive know her since 4th grade just had her first baby on April 27th.

I made this blanket yesterday, took about a hour or so, I wanted some bold colors so I picked out two childrens flannel pieces and added satin blanket binding, idea from this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83388.0

with the left over scraps I made a burp cloth, from this website, http://www.craftandfabriclinks.com/baby/shaped_burp_cloth.html

Then there is the knitted blanket, this was the first thing I made, I like it, but Im not super excited about it, thats why I got all this extra stuff, this is also why I went for bold colors on the sewn blanket

With the leftover yarn, I knit up a quick hat, and added in the letters LIL JAKE, though you cant see it too well

The baby gund elephant is a super soft stuffed animal I got at tuesday morning, along with the wrapped box which is a onsie purchased at the same time, I had to wrap something, I used to work customer service at hechts when I was in college, and I was really into the giftwrapping which was part of our job, when they got new supplies we got to take home the old stuff, so I have tons and tons of wrapping paper, wire edged ribbon and the little do dads that go on top, ( the rattle)

here are the pictures...
