A Practical Baby Shower Gift

I'm churning out the owl-themed baby gifts over here because I'm invited to a shower with a woodland creature thing goin' on. 

Pay no attention to the imperfect stitching.  Instead, focus on the practicality of this cute gift.  How handy to have your wipes, diaper, and changing pad all in one little clutch!  I wish I'd had something like this when Susannah was a youngin'. 

I'm pairing this on-the-go-mom-gift with the owl bib I just crocheted.  While both gifts are totally cute, one is handy and useful and the other is terribly impractical.  The yin and yang of owl gifts.   

I used an incredibly simple tutorial that I found at Cluck. Cluck. Sew (a fun blog worthy of a visit). 

On a slightly related note:  If any of my friends are reading this, I'd like to urge you to get pregnant so I can make you some baby shower stuff - it's really fun!  I found so many tutorials for adorable baby gifts and it'd be a shame for them to go to waste!
