Last minute baby shower gift

What do you do when your friend is due with her third bub and someone decides to hold a baby shower for her? You know she has almost everything - and what she doesn't have I have.

Well I know that I am so less anal this time about having my nappy bag fully stocked now that I have to cart 2 kiddies around. I often just chuck Ashton's stuff in Ellyse's backpack and have trouble finding it all when needed. Karen from my EB sewing group suggested a nappy wallet, and it just so happened that Marie had made a nappy roll previously and it was similar to what I had seen on line. I added a change mat and this is the finished product. I think Hannah will be very happy with it.

Not sure if I will get to the taggie ball I was going to make to go with it, they don't take long so I may get it done in the morning. Keiran and I will be child free and off dishwasher, microwave, DVD recorder and phone shopping - oh the fun!

I can't beleive you got this done so quickly Andrea - well done. I think it's a great gift - I might make one for my friend who just had a baby.

Looks great Andrea - I wish I had done mine up in a prettier fabric. I use it all the time and it really helps me make sure I have enough supplies.

Good luck shopping for new electrical appliances.

This is such a lovely gift idea Andrea. I love the spotty fabric you have used.

I was just preparing to make a nappy wallet when I happened across your blog! I am going to make a roll instead now! How very handy!
