Newborn Bunting and Baby Blanket

A fellow teacher friend had a baby last week, on my bonus son's thirty-first birthday.  I wanted to get something done for the baby, but I had some other things I felt I needed to finish first.  But, in the middle of the week, I got tired of waiting to finish, so I went ahead and created this. I used a very easy pattern from Miracles Happen  with TLC Baby yarn in the color Powder Yellow Sparkle.  It is very plain, so I am trying to decide if I will add a little ruffle on the collar and sleeves and across the top section, like an empire waist.  What do you think I should do.?

I also finally finished my baby blanket!  It was completed with two skeins of Baby Coordinates in a self-striping blue/green. color.  I am pleased with how it turned out, but next time, it will be a smaller project.  I like to be able to get things done.

That's just so lovely! I wish I could make something neat like that -- I am just all thumbs when it comes to anything involving thread/yarn -- sigh.

I like the simplicity of the bunting, but maybe add a simple picot edge to the end of the sleeves? But I think it looks really nice the way it is.
