An invitation arrives from your granddaughter or from a special friend, maybe even your favorite niece. This means no ordinary shower gift will do for this present has to be unique, special, and stand out at the shower.
One gift will not be tossed aside after a few statements of “Wow how nice,” or “So cute,” and then be forgotten in the pile with the other baby shower gifts.
One that has everyone at the baby shower passing your baby gift around for all to see and touch. One that will bring tears of your to the eyes of the new mom, as she visualizes her new baby with this new baby cuddled in the new gift.
One that won’t get put into a dresser drawer to be forgotten after the thank you note has been written and the tags removed.
One the baby won’t outgrow in a few weeks, because babies tend to grow so fast at those early stages.
One the new mom won’t already have the same gift or get one at the shower maybe in a different color or pattern design.
Now were does such a baby shower gift exist?
Think of your own small child and remember those good times and what they kept snuggled close by with them at night, dragged around daily until it was so thread bare you were afraid to wash it for fear their precious treasure may just not hold together. Yes, it was their favorite baby quilt or blanket.
Can’t you just picture the baby shower? The mother-to-be is opening your gift and holding your handmade baby quilt for all to see. A gift so unique a different from anything she has opened from others at the shower. Tears spring into her eyes as she cuddles the soft cotton flannel to her cheeks and dreams of the little one that will soon be in her arms wrapped in that baby quilt. In a flurry, everyone in the room wants to take a closer look, touch the soft fabrics, and see the handmade stitches that make your baby shower gift one-of-a-kind.
You did it! A unique baby shower gift and a handmade baby quilt to last a lifetime.
