    when allison had her bridal shower-the game was "toilet paper wedding dresses" I won! So when her baby shower invite announced "to wrap eco-friendly" I thought it was a another contest! I made a baby from a bunny head, a sleeper, a quilt,& a throw.I folded my pieced/appliqued quilt up, pinned the head& sleeper to it. I then stuffed the sleeper w/all other gifts. Iwrapped "my baby"up in the panel/fleece throw tying it w/ the selvages. I didn't WIN- it wasn't a contest! It was still alot of fun& brought alot of ooohhhs& ahhhs!

    really a beautiful lavendar& lavendar print

    That is crazy just like the price of crib sheets. I made my daughter 5 sheets and may make more when I get enough yardage.

    Another cute way is I made a quilt burp cloths , a little dress made out of oneies, socks to match and a long bib. I think put them on a clothes line using colorful clothpins . left one end of the rope to pull on out of the bag and it look like a line of clthes drying. I have used a similar one like you used only using a sleeper

    For years I have wrapped baby shower gifts in receiving blankets or hooded bath towels. The "bow" are little socks or booties laid in an X and tied.
    I love your bunny, such a cute idea.
