Now that I have passed this present on I can safely post images without spoiling the surprise!
I used a shop bought plain blanket and bib for this gift set and gave them the personal touch by adding appliquéd letters and an appliquéd tractor motif. As this gift is intended for much use and much washing I made sure that all the appliqué fabrics had been pre-washed before stitching down to avoid any shrinkage. This also gives the fabrics a softer feel and is nicer against baby's skin.
The recipient was very happy with this gift set and it was lovely to see the blanket and bib being used straight away.
