Carter's gift basket and a new baby

I just found out last night that we are getting a new addition to the family.
My nephew, Mathew, will be a daddy for the first time.
I am so excited!
It seems it wasn't that long ago that I was making things for the bridal shower.
Anyhow, that reminded me, I never posted little Carter's baby gift.
Carter is the very newest addition to our family.
Carter is Cole's baby brother and my great nephew.
Carter's theme was sports and animals.
I got started with this little elephant design.
I wanted to stitch something to match the elephant I purchased.
I added a bib...
a burp cloth...
 a hooded towel and washcloth...
and started on the basket liner...
I added a few extras like powder, shampoo, wash, etc. and this personalized Christmas ornament I found at Michaels.
Here it is all together.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo after it was wrapped and ready to go.
You can see my other wrapped baby baskets here, here, here, here, here and here.
Stay tuned...
I have even another baby basket in progress for a friend.

I love making baskets for new babies...
Is it obvious?
