Sometimes the perfect gift is right in your own home. I re-purposed the best parts of a flannel nightgown, a fleece throw, and a satin pillowcase (all of which I already had) to create this "taggie" blanket for an upcoming baby shower. Pretty, useful, and completely free. My machine was broken so I had to hand sew and it only took me a few nights in front of the TV to finish it.
