Rubber Ducky Baby Basket

Here's a baby gift I made up for a friend's shower tomorrow.
She told me once she wanted to do the baby's bath things in the yellow ducky theme.
I had a lot of fun making up this basket of goodies in a yellow and orange color scheme.
Here's what's inside:
Hooded towel and washcloths

I had baby wash and lotion in the basket, but when I found out that the new mom didn't need any more I exchanged them for something she did need --- white newborn onesies.
There's also a yellow ducky sleeper and some cute hair clips.
Two little ducky toys -- the one on the right tells you if the water is too hot.
Also included a Cheerios snack container.
These things matched the colors I was using -- 
Wet wipes in and orange/yellow wrapper
Orange hairbow
First toothbrush/toothpaste
Every new mom needs books to read her baby -- I included three!
Two are board books and the third a Little Golden Book Collection
Two Cedarmont kids CD's
(in orange/yellow cases of course!).

Here's the little card I made to go along with the theme
  • Heart Template
  • Duck Template
  • Martha Stewart branch punch
  • Quilling tool (for rolled rose)
  • Orange button/brad
  • Sewing maching
  • Sizzix marker (faux stitching)

You did a great job on the theme basket! And you did a great job including things that will actually be needed and used, too!
