More Handmade Gifts

There are quite a few people I know who are expecting a baby this spring me not included (just making sure I clarified that). And I decided it would be best to be prepared with gifts now ,rather than scramble at the last minute. My last gift, the baby blessing dress and the baby booties were a huge hit! And though these next couple gifts that I've put together are probably not as impressive as that, I am still happy with them.

First I made this reversible nursing cover out of just 4 fat quarters I had picked up from Joanne's during their black friday sale last year. I think they were like .50 cents a piece or something like that. I love the colors and I think my original plan was to make a quilt out of them. However I like this too.

Then I made this portable high chair that I've seen on a couple other blogs. I used this tutorial here. I don't have a baby small enough to fit one right now so just imagine your own little chubby-cheeked pumpkin in there k. It's just 3 rectangles with batting/felt in-between the layers, and then vecro on the waistband piece. Pretty simple. For this I just used some leftover scraps from a previous project and some heart fabric my mom gave me. So it was free! Not bad huh?
Sorry about the bad pictures. It is dark right now but I didn't want to wait til morning for better lighting. So my last post about turning off the flash just went out the window. Oops.
