New book out worth a look. Baby Times: 24 Handmade Treasures for Baby & Mom is full of perfect ideas for baby gifts as well as items to make for your own child.
The book is divided into five sections based on the purpose of the finished item:
- Party Time - good shower gift ideas
- Home Time - nursery items
- Go Time - take with you items
- Dress Up Time - clothing
- Play Time - toys
Note that the clothing section is more about mom playing dress up with the baby than the child playing dress up.
There are some cute baby quilts in the home section, but also blankets in the party one and a playmat in the last one. The designs are generally very modern in style and you could easily put together several in coordinating fabrics for a great baby shower gift.
