Chevron Baby Shower Gifts

I am a late admirer of chevron fabrics. Last year when the chevron craze seemed to be at fever pitch, I didn’t get any because I felt like they where EVERYWHERE. I’ve changed my mind. I like the classic clean lines, and I like the alternative to cutesy kid prints. Which is why I’ve used them for this project.

My high school friend Mary-Kate is having her first baby and is due on Feb 1st. I went to her baby shower yesterday and this is what I made to give to her and her husband. MK’s style is classic, simple and modern. I also know, as a Mum of two girls, that she will be given A LOT of pink gifts, so I decided to stray from that tradition a little.

I made a coordinating set of bibs, and the pink, grey and aqua are such a great colour combo for a baby girl. The fabric is Riley Blake Chevron quilting cotton from my sponsor Wrapped In Fabric. They stock the whole range including pre-cuts, and have super fast shipping in Australia. Definitely pop over and check them out.

I also made my standard baby gift, a travel nappy pouch filled with goodies. It was the first time I used a d-ring and clasp for the wristlet and I love the results. I also love the hot pink zip!

Including a few essential supplies, I packed all the goodies into this fabric basket I made. It was the first time I’d attempted a large basket and I found working with the heavy duty interfacing a bit difficult, so there are a few wonky bits. I got the idea for this basket from seeing this one by Anna of Noodlehead.

Can’t wait to meet MK’s little girl in a couple of weeks!

  1. What a gorgeous set Ros. I'm sure your friend will love it! I was a bit like you with Chevron, but it's growing on me… especially after seeing it used on those bibs! I love them!!!
    Also love the d ring on the wrist strap.. looks really profesh 😉

  2. gorgeous pressie Ros, your friend will be so happy! I love the basket – they'd be great as scraps baskets. I'm taking forever to make my QAYG scraps baskets, so maybe I'll try one of these too. Catherine.
