Baby dolls, boy and girl, made out of one pink thermal receiving blanket and one blue thermal receiving blanket, a boys bonnet, a girls bonnet, a blue bib and pink bib, white thin satin ribbon, girl booties and boy booties.
- two thermal receiving blankets, one pink and one blue
- one each: an infant boy's bonnet and an infant girl's bonnet
- two bibs, one pink and one blue
- two pairs of booties, one for boys and one for girls
- Take the receiving blanket hold the long rectangular way, roll each long side to the middle, till the two sides meet.
- Folded 3/4 halfway with the rolls on the inside.
- While holding in your hand, using a fist full of craft stuffing (fiberfill) stuff inside the top of the inside roll, to make the head, gently tie a ribbon around under the head to make the head.
- Then take from the back side the two ends of the roll, the short ends, and bring them around the front sides, tie with a ribbon around the end piece of each side roll, to make hands.
- Take the bottom two rolled ends and do the same, separate and tie off with a ribbon to make feet.
- Put the bonnet over the head, put the bib around the neck, and the booties on each foot.
- Hand embroider half moon blue eyes, a tiny knot for a nose and a pink embroidered mouth.
These sit in a basket, make wonderful gift toppers, and then beautiful decorations for baby's nursery.

what a great way to give a bunch of small baby gifts. You could stuff the doll body with other receiving blankets, washcloths, bibs etc. and pin on other baby items to the outside.
