When my cousin had her baby five years ago, I made her three baby gifts, one was the crocheted afghan that I showed in the previous post, another was a fleece blanket with a crocheted edging. I bought a yard of very colorful fleece and crocheted a bright yellow scalloped edging on it. It was super simple to make and made a great blanket for tummy time. Here's a picture.
The last gift was a knitted toy. The toy pattern is called Uh-Ohs and it's a pattern you have to buy from a seller on Ravelry so I can't divulge any of the details of the pattern. I was a beginner knitter and this pattern was easy to follow and it was fun to knit. The sewing at the end was a little fiddly but is was well worth it. This was my completed toy.
