One of my favorite things to write about is sewing for babies, since that's what I spend most of my sewing and quilting time doing. I'm heading to a baby shower (for twins!) on Sunday, and am contemplating what cute and quick sewing project I can whip up for the babies.

I've talked before about how I was stuck in a baby quilt rut where that's all I made for new little ones, but lately I've branched out into bibs. Baby bibs can be both fast and fun to make, and I've enjoyed sewing some in vibrant, child-themed flannels.
But with just a few days left until the baby shower, and with my flannel stash dwindling, I'm contemplating a few alternatives for handmade baby gifts I can sew for the twins.
I've never sewn baby blocks before, but patterns I've seen look easy. A coworker just made burp cloths for two expectant mothers in our office, and they looked doable (and adorable).
I know several people whose go-to handmade baby gift is a knitted or crocheted blanket. Those are adorable, but I'll have to save those ideas for when I have time to learn a new craft.
If you're looking for inspiration or patterns for needlepoint, knitting, crochet, and more, consider ordering a subscription of Piecework magazine from the Sew Daily Shop.
What projects do you like to sew or make for babies—quick and easy, or otherwise? I can't wait to hear.
