Swap done!

I belong to this craft website, craftster.org. I thought it would be fun to participate in a "swap" where I make items for a stranger and they make items to send to me. I thought I'd start easy and go with what I know for my first one- so I picked a baby items swap.
These are the items that I made...
An owl onesie that uses both paint and felt
A diaper wipe case
A burp cloth and matching reversible bib
A taggie blanket- my first ever and surprisingly quick and easy!

I mailed it all out this morning. I hope she likes them.

I'm clueless when it comes to sewing---on the taggie blanket, how do you make the ends "seamless"? (This is a dumb question) Do you tuck in the fabric?

Also, I've really been wanting to make burp cloths...where do you get the cloth/fabric???

Absolutely adorable! Love the the fabric! A tag blanket was the first thing Michelle Cooke taught me how to sew on my sewing machine. I was surprised at how easy it was to make too! Cute!

Oooh - I love it all! Each piece is so cute and the whole set is just over-the-top adorable.

Dear Aunt Claire,
I know it has been a LONG time since you have been a baby so I will cut you some slack. But as a reminder, owls are fierce birds of prey. Look at
! Quite a bit different than what you had in mind when crafting your swap gifts, huh? I know it is too late since the gifts are already made, but perhaps you should send an apology note and maybe a toy tractor or something.
