Pooh Bear



I love the idea of creating gifts that combine handmade items with non-handmade products. While browsing in a secondhand store earlier this summer I came up with an idea for a Winnie the Pooh gift set for a baby shower or toddler birthday.
 

My local yarn shop, Green Planet Yarn, had the perfect Pooh Bear colored yarn, so I knit up a couple wash cloths in a feather and fan pattern. They are cotton and very soft.


A vintage looking plate, candy tin and story book completed the gift set.

 
I didn't have anyone in mind when I put it together, but I heard a couple days ago that a woman in my book club just had a baby. It's nice having ready-made gifts on hand for these occasions, although I wonder how appropriate it is to give items purchased secondhand. I'll have to think about that one.
 

I love my wash cloths

That is a really sweet baby gift idea Stacy and one I will
be using here. All my children's friends are now having
babies and I have several showers to attend.
Great gift!

Great gift idea...and as long as the "used" item looks new, I would give it.
