It’s always a special time when a new life comes into the world. I think a nice gift to make up is a little hamper with things for the baby (and the parents too if you wish).
I got my basket from Wilkinsons. It already had the fabric on the inside, so I did a quick bit of customising by sewing a ribbon bow and pearl bead to each corner.
Then you need to choose the bits you want to put it inside it. I got some babygrows, a cloth book and a pram toy from Mothercare for this one.
Arrange the stuff inside the basket, cut a wide strip of fabric and tie it in a rough bow around the middle.
The parents can then use the basket for storage if they like so there is no packaging waste!
You can also use a piece of voile to cover the items if you want, as I did for another basket.
