Guess who is crafty? not me :)

My half-projects. I say half because I hardly did anything on these. My friend, Hilary, is pretty much amazing, and aside from cutting out the burp cloth pattern and ironing the flannel and stitching the sides, Hilary did everything. Because I suck at cutting, we decided to go ahead and sew them inside out then flip them and do a fake stitch. So- the first picture is of those I actually worked on.
I took the extra fabric from my clover blanket (see next pics) and HILARY made some really nice burp cloths with a sewed edge. I am so in love with them that I may not use them! haha (look closely at the cute pattern, you think it's one thing, but it's totally another).
And here is the clover blanket. My older sister, Leanne, let me borrow hers when we first had Grant, and I LOVED IT! So, Hilary made this one. It's double sided, as you can see, and has slits down the middle for straps, and one for the buckle. It also has a layer of batting in between... this baby is going to be WARM! It also has this cute brown ribbon as an edge. We went with this fabric for a few reasons. 1- super cute!!! 2- super soft!!! haha 3- red matches carseat, and blue matches the stroller. 4- I don't like to find out the sex of the baby, so it's totally appropriate for a girl OR boy! Yeah!!
And here it is all open. We ran out of ribbon for the slots in the middle, but all in all, HILARY IS AMAZING! I love it. And I want to crawl up in it myself. So- this was our Halloween :)

That's so cute! Do you have a pattern? I would love to try and make one of those for our little one to be.
