    Maybe one of those books made from a printed panel? Or a stuffed doll - I found a cute panel recently that makes princess dolls.

    I made her 4 books for her moms shower. Like i said, i made her a lot of things. 2 quilts, one for her to use, and one for her mom to put away. i also made a crocheted afghan. For her birthday this year in Dec., I'm making her a cute rag doll, (a baby doll), with cloths.

    I made my niece a small 24"x24" I Spy quilt with matching beanbags. At first she just threw the bags, but later learned how to match them by laying them down. Now at 4 she likes to try to throw them and match them.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    How about a book keeper? Kinda like an over-the-door organizer thingy with pockets, but it drapes over the edge of each side of the bed and has pockets for bedtime books.

    How about a small apron?
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    ..... along with the dolly!

    Future gifts .... more doll quilts, and a wardrobe for the Little Dolly.
    Even matching ensembles for the little girl and her dolly.

    Todders like to carry things around. Have you made her a bag? Other ideas: a twirley skirt or ruffle skirt (depending on how well she's walking); flannel board (you could make a felt tree with hearts to decorate it, then add to it at different times of the year); buy a plain shirt and applique something onto the front; hair clips; apron; art smock; hooded towel or just personalized towel; crochet hat and/or sweater; crayon roll - http://two-little-monkies.blogspot.c...yon-caddy.html

    likie I said, i'm making her a doll for her birthday in December.

    maybe i'll try an I spy. she's still too young for that. maybe about 2-3 for an I spy.
    She's just starting to walk, so an apron won't be wearing one till she's about 2.

    what about the bag that goes behind the car seat for her books and toys to stash when it the car? I made several for g-boys using some fun fabrics on the back and trim with clear plastic for the front so they could see what was in it--and then a webbing with plastic snap clip to hang around the seat headrest.

    How about a placemat? My 9 year old granddaughter made them for her cousins for Christmas - they were very well received! She stitched around the edges, I burped them and pressed and stitched the opening shut and then she stitched willy nilly to quilt it! She has never sewn before so as she chose prints specific to each cousin - she also chose how to do her random quilting - willy nilly!!

    Make her an activity mat for Tummy time. Have fun adding some flaps and doodads to enjoy from her little world on the floor.

    How about a pretty toddler sized bib. Most bibs are too small to protect the clothes of a year old baby who is learning to feed herself.

    Maybe a quiet book that she can take to church or appointments, doll quilt or doll carrier/backpack.

    A little red dress! Maybe with some leggings to match, since it's still cold in February....
