The birth of a baby is such a special event, and it is a traditional time for gifts. What could be better than a gift that has been made by an adoring mother, grandmother, aunt or friend? Here, Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell - herself a doting grandmother of two - has put together a collection of 35 beautiful projects, all with charmingly illustrated step-by-step instructions and beautiful photography. For newborns, make a cosy patchwork quilt from off-cuts of cashmere sweaters or cute toys to hang above the cot. For an active baby, create a soft floor rug with ribbon tags and fabric flowers for little fingers to investigate. Once your baby has become aware of the wider world, try making some cuddly toys or a fabric book embellished with applique animals. And for toddlers moving into their own bedroom, how about a decorated picture frame, or a doll-sized blanket to keep their favourite toys warm? You will be spoilt for choice with these gorgeous gifts, all created with love and to be passed down through future generations.
