Peas in a Pod (Baby Shower Gift)

It's almost springtime and you know what that means? Everyone is pregnant! I feel like my social media feeds have been filling up with baby bumps and sonograms these past few months. Was there something in the water? In any case, trying to come up with fun, yet creative, yet affordable baby gift ideas would be more difficult if it weren't for Pinterest. In my search for a great gift I kept coming across this idea for Peas in a Pod washcloths and figured it couldn't be that hard to make, it's gender-neutral, and it's something a mother will really need!

All you need is:

* 4 washcloths (preferably one that's green for the "pod")

* Something to keep the washcloths rolled up (elastic hair ties, tape, rubber bands, ribbon,

* Something to tie the ends with (elastic hair ties, tape, rubber bands, ribbon, etc.)

First, fold and roll up your 3 (the "peas") washcloths. I found it was easiest to fold, then fold again, then roll. Tie something around them, or tape them, to keep them in tact - in this case, I used elastic hair ties.

Once all three washcloths are folded, lay out your green (the "pod") washcloth. Place the three "peas" in the middle and tie off the ends of the pod. In this case, I used a rubber band, then covered it with a ribbon. I found I needed to fold the sides of the pod a little, otherwise they were too long.

And that's it! Give it to your mother-to-be and she'll be thankful for a creative presentation to a much-needed gift!
