Baby Shower Bag

I know nothing about babies! Or what babies want or what people who have babies want….and my sister is having a baby shower in 2 weeks time. So I made her a charlie bag and some bibs. I read somewhere once that extra large bibs come in handy (for extra large messes I guess) but I curse that that tidbit stuck in my memory because these were a pain to sew! I did a poor job of the bias binding and attempted to do my own appliques. Disaster!!! So I bought some iron on ones instead. Oh well, I’m sure the baby won’t notice the imperfections (or at least if it does it will be polite enough not to comment)
Now I need ideas on what other baby paraphenalia to fill the bag with – help is much appreciated! :)

Material Notes

Canvas for outer and lining of bag and hand towels cut in half for bibs

    I like the bag a lot and the bibs are adorable!

    As for the other things I would vote for diapers and baby cosmetics – Being an aunt is no small thing, is it? ;)

    All those things for baby are just great, but, as a mommy myself extra diapers will help :)

    Love the bag! Waterproof pads and knit baby hats were huge for us!

    Hi – very cute, particularly the bibs. wipes, nappies, face washers, rattles, baby wash and creams are all good things to put in your bag. You could probably make a rattle if you wanted to! Just some ideas…
