You will probably remember me saying my Sister in law was due to have a baby girl well I'm pleased to announce that baby Annabell has arrived safe and sound weighing in a healthy 9lb!. I am making up a hamper of gifts and i will post a pic once i have assembled it. In the meantime i thought i would show you the little co-ordinating items i have made to go in the hamper (with other stuff i have bought).
I have shown one of the bibs and the taggie last week but have now made another bib and a matching bath towel. i made the bath towel by taking a plain white towel and adding a co-ordinating piece of fabric and some lace. Just cut your piece of fabric slightly larger than required. Iron your fabric pressing between 1- 2cm underneath on each side so you are left with all edge tucked underneath. Place your lace on the edge of your towel and the fabric piece right side up on top of that. pin in place and then top stitch all the way round each side of the fabric. i did two rows of stitching as it looks smarter - ok i didn't catch a small part of the lace so had to do another row but lets not mention that!!). If you want to make the bibs see my instructions here and my tutorial for the taggie is here
