Pink Cheetah Baby Shower Gifts

There’s a new baby on the way! It’s a girl. We don’t get many girls in this family. So of course, I have been crafting up a storm.
The color/theme is pink cheetah. I found this fabric at JoAnn’s, and used brown flannel as a compliment. We know her name, so that made these gifts really fun!
The first thing I made was a blanket. This blanket is about a yard widthwise, and lengthwise.

For this blanket I used this tutorial from A Feathered Nest.
Next I made my specialties; bib, burp cloth, and onesie.

I tried a new pattern:

This pattern is the Snuggler from Simple Sewing for Baby. (I’m not getting paid for this- just wanted to let you know where the pattern came from.)
Next up was some yarn work (fulfilling my crochet kick).

The hat on the left was made using this pattern (with some adjustments for 0-3 month size), the headband from here, and the hat on the right from this pattern.
Everything got the addition of handmade tags, including care instructions. I love giving handmade gifts! What are your favorite baby gifts to give?

  1. The handmade tags are so cute! I love giving handmade baby gifts as well. My standard gift is a softie, bib & sometimes a knitted hat.

    1. They were so easy! (My kinda project) I used a punch to punch a shape from cardstock, used a stamp for the front, and wrote the item, size, and care instructions on the back. Then attached to the gift.
      It added a nice finishing touch.

  2. The hat and the headbands look so cute. They are perfect match with that cheetah-inspired blanket and other add-ons. Thank you for sharing.
