On a Roll

It seems like I know several people having babies and that means lots of baby showers! Of course I can't just go get something off their registry...I have to create something. This process can be a bit frustrating and joyous at the same time. It also gives you a bad case of baby fever!

Sometimes you don't get the luxury of knowing the gender of the baby, so you have to come up with a gift that works no matter what. This is what led me to searching for a unisex baby gift. There are the typical go-to items like receiving blankets, bibs, stuffed animals, booties, etc...which are all generally easy to make. I wanted something a little more unique that they may not get otherwise. I found the Nappy Roll! It doesn't have a "pattern", but it does have dimensions and great instructions. I think it is a very practical gift and it is now on my list for baby shower gifts!

The Nappy Roll reminded me of the Crayon Roll found on one of my fav blogs Skip To My Lou.

This would be fun for young children and convenient for packing them around. It is much sturdier then the box that the crayons usually come in and a lot cuter. For older children, you could alter the pattern a bit to fit markers or colored pencils.
