"Sweet" Baby Shower Gift

My neighbor across the street had a baby shower this past weekend.  I have not bought a baby gift for the last 5 years, and I don't plan on starting now.  I found this idea on Cute as a Fox.  I think she bought her blanket and burp clothes, but I wanted to try making my own.  I didn't have a pattern, so I just made one for both of them.  I forgot to take a picture after I had sewed the blanket and burp clothes, so sorry.  The lollipop is made out of the blanket, the cupcakes are made out of the burp clothes and socks and the hard candy is made out of wash clothes.  The baby is a surprise, so I had to stick with neutral colors.  I am so excited how this turned out.  I even threw in some real candy for the mom-to-be!  Oh so sweet ;)
