Just for Babies

I've been mucking around with things for baby gifts because I have seen so many great ideas in the markets. Firstly, because I have a new baby great niece I bought some tiny singlets to applique on.
Here is my first.
I'm not sure if the zig zag stitching will be kind to a baby's skin. Maybe the next will be the edged first and then just straight stitched on.
Cute fabric!
The second thing I wanted to have a go at was making a feely cloth for a toddler to play with and cuddle while out and about. I've seen them with crinkly fabric inside but I thought I would stick to basics first up.

One side has the cute socks fabric and the other is made from a soft cuddly fabric that I bought from Spotlight. I ironed some interfacing on to the back of it to help keep it from moving around. The ribbons are all different textures and tickle.
