Baby Shower Gifts - Hexagons!

I'm invited to a good friend's baby shower this weekend, and I wanted to bring a handmade gift (along with a regular gift off the registry).  It was a bit too busy to make a baby quilt in time for the shower, so I decided to dress up some baby items!  I previously made similar gifts, and they were a hit.

I found a set of two plain onesies, which I embellished with hexagons.  I hand-pieced the hexagons together and then machine-stitched them to each onesie:



I also found two organic burpcloths/washcloths, which I also embellished with hexagons:





I went for a pink and green color scheme throughout the hexagons, which pulled all of the items together and made them feel like a coordinated set.  It was a fun, fast baby gift, and I had a chance to use up some scraps (always a plus)!  I hope my friend and the baby-to-be likes them!

The full set.
