Cuddly Knit Baby Gifts!

It seems like we have been crafting for so many new babies lately! Handmade baby gifts are the best--they are often quick because of their small size so you can really make them extra special. Our quilting instructor here at Fancy Tiger is about to have a new baby boy and since she is an amazing sewer, we had to use our knitting skills to whip up some gifts to welcome the new baby.

Amber made this larger-than-baby-sized bear! She used the Bobbi Bear pattern from Blue Sky Alpaca and knit it up in the Brown Sheep Burly Spun yarn. This bear is huge and will be the perfect cuddly companion to keep the new baby boy company.

I made a bunting using the Spud and Chloe Buga Baby Bunting pattern knit up in the super thick and soft Spud and Chloe Outer yarn. This machine washable, organic cotton/wool blend is oh-so-soft and will keep the new baby cozy and warm this winter. We can hardly wait to see him bundled up in it!

Bobbi Bear can hardly wait to go home with the new baby and is keeping the baby bunting nice and warm.

Congratulations Jessica and Ismail and thanks for giving us an excuse to knit up theses cute items! We can't wait to meet the new baby.
