I've completely fallen in love with craftster and it has inspired me to finally learn how to make things. I've always had the interest, but never gotten around to it...So, everyone, thanks!

But anyway, I'm new to crafting, and would like to make a baby shower gift for a co-worker. By the time of the party she will probably be about 4 months along. I figure most of the other girls will get clothes, etc. I was looking at those nifty baby slings at Jan Andrea's site, but am unsure.

The father to be is a basketball coach, so I was thinking of maybe something to do with that...?

Any ideas would be appreciated. I have about 2 months to get it done.  Smiley

Thanks! And keep up the great work... Grin

Do you have a sewing machine?  Easy gift is a tab blanket.  2 pieces of fleece (or flannel or if you're really lucky and find Minky use that...mmm minky). with some looped ribbons around the edge and sew it up!  There's directions on this board to making them.  I guess you could do it by hand, but a machine is quicker.

No machine?  A tied fleece blanket.  2 pieces of fleece (you could do a basketball theme on one side and something more "baby" on the other.  So 2 pieces of fleece, cut 1" wide by 4" or so long strips around the edge of it (so it looks like fringe) Do this on both sides (cutting them together is a good idea).  Tie the two sides together and you're done.  Very easy.

Theoretically you could teach yourself to knit and make baby booties...check out the knitting board and in particular "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" thread....fantastic booties in under 2 hours.
