Remember this?

Anyway, I always had bigger plans for this little knit hat. I just had to find the time to finish its counterparts! I wasn’t able to go to a baby shower for my good friend from undergrad back in October, but still wanted to get her something for her new baby.  I knitted these hats with her in mind from the get go.

On positive side, being fashionably late with this gift allowed me to wait until I knew the baby’s name. Last weekend my mom and I completed the gift with some more personalized additions. So here is the completed knit berry hat gift:

How adorable is that!? The baby’s name, by the way, is Abigail, so the A’s are more than appropriate.

My mom has a fancy schmancy embroidery machine (I can talk about that more in a later post) which made the applique pretty easy to do. I basically said “I like that A, this fabric, with this thread” and watched the machine do its magic.

Same for the strawberries:

The burp cloth is my mom’s specialty. She gets all the credit for this. Like with the embroidery machine I said, “I like this A and this fabric” and she did her magic. Thanks, Mom!

They’re made from cloth diapers. She’s made these before and even has her own label for all of her fun creations.

This all makes for one happy, stylish baby!

    I have been a fortunate recipient of the WONDERFUL burp cloths. They are the cloths the end up in the wash first because I always grab them out of the drawer first because they are so cute, and there is more to them than a normal burp cloth so they are more absorbent … excellent product! 🙂
