Quick Baby Gift

I'm a little burnt out on baby quilts these days. For Ron's cousin Alexis and her new baby Zachary I used a store-bought Dwell Studio blanket and appliqued the baby's name on it. Then I decided to hand draw the giraffe image and applique a onesie and sew a giraffe stuffie. Because I can't ever seem to stop, I had to add trim to store-bought baby pants. I also wanted to put a binding on the blanket but I didn't have nearly enough fabric and of course couldn't find it again since I bought it over a year ago. So, all in all, handmade touches to store-bought items. Fun, quick, satisfying.
