My daughters in the last 3 years with 2boys & 1 girl both liked cloth holders holders that take the place of zip lock plastic bags... for wipes and diapers together. They both chose fun fabrics, too. They both wanted dozens of burpees/cloths. They were really fun to personalize with embroidery and I didn't add any fabric trim.
Thank you Dear Cuties,
My gift is going to include all things mentioned.
I have a wonderful list to shop with and projects to do list. Due date is early January 2013 so I have time. It is hard not to get excited already.
Burpees, my grand daughter said" these are my favorite things and I can never have to many", " we have to take them every where we go"/Lillian
I always give 2 of these and embroider something on one end.
I am battling to load the link for the car tidy, trying again

Basic to babies wardrobe is warmth, pretty, quick and easy and last is fun! I guess the fun goes with each of the other must haves! what ever you do I am sure it will be wonderful! Congradulations Grandma! LLDS!
First things first LOTS OF LOVE NANA:) A car seat tidy with wipes, disposable nappies bum cream, spare dummy or pacifier in container, things in easy reach in the car. I made this for my DIL and she loved it. A donut is fun to make and very useful, specially if you put handles on it and some heavy duty press studs or buttons and buton holes, can then doubl up as a carrier for while baby is still small, or as a toy carrier and place to play when a bit bigger. I knitted a few baby shrugs which are great for a bit of warmth.
I love that. I order one right away. I'm going to make one for my house for the little ones and all new mom for their shower gifts. Thanks for sharing. Hugs & Stitches, Liz
Nappies, Vests, baby nappy cream and lotion Baby powder and Something nice for the mother as a serprise. Hugs Joyce
I made a nappy (diaper) layer cake - go to YOU TUBE - sorry - i dont know how to put the link on here :(
Yes, these are lovely and I plan to wrap in all the knitted goodies.
Diapers, baby wipes, bibs, a photo frame for babies 1st picture, baby shampoo, vasoline and other nice lotions or oils.
Well over here in Australia all the rage is muslin cloths to wrap the baby in like a cocoon! And of course Onesies (or Bonds jumpsuits) Love and blessings Chris
Ah I was hoping to see the coconut!
Another lady had a cute idea the other day - she gave a "medical bag" for a baby shower. It contained the most needed "medicines" for a newborn for example it contained vapo ampules, telemant drop for colic, fever syrrup etc.
Very good idea!
