I agonized over what to give. Usually I would make a baby quilt, but I didn't because a) I am severely lacking in boy friendly fabrics and b) I doubt that a quilt can be considered a sprinkle, even if I really want it to be.
In the end, I made the little man 2 bibs and a monster.
I picked out a solid chocolate brown, some Alexander Henry Teeny Tiny Zoo in pool, and some Cake Rock Beach Eclipse in Water and whipped up two little bibs using a combination of the Nested Basic Bib template and the Quilted Patchwork Bib tutorial on Sew She Sews. They were fun and really easy to make and so I am sure they will become a go-to gift for baby showers. I also made a little RevoluzZa monster with her tutorial and pattern. I only made a slight alteration to the mouth since I didn't want to make the embroidered one from the instructions.
All three resources provided really easy to follow instructions, so the only error I made was to sew the monster together with a wrong and a right side facing together instead of the right sides together. Due entirely to make lack of attention.
We dropped the gifts off on our way downtown since I was unable to actually attend the Sprinkle Shower. I got to meet tiny perfect Nathan and spend a little time with his mom and siblings. It was great fun, and so nice to hold such a new baby. I am glad that Nathan's mom enjoyed the gifts and am anxiously awaiting the pictures of him with the bibs and monster.
