If you are looking for a nice gift for a baby shower, a baby sling is quick, easy, and inexpensive to make. I made this one out of some home decore fabric I had gotten for $5 for 2 yards at Big Lots. Here are the instructions for the sling: http://www.mykarmababy.com/pages/BabySlingPattern.php
You do need measurements to ensure a good fit but there are guidelines for "average" sizing.
Back in May, my friend asked if I would help her 2nd grader with a school project. She had to create a product and a business around this product. She had to make a prototype and decide how to market product. This was a big task for a 2nd grader. I helped here research some options and we came up with the theme of going green by reusable bags out of old T-Shirts.
We got the idea from this blog: http://wildonionstudio.wordpress.com/2008/06/01/tee-bags-a-tutorial-to-recycle-a-tee-shirt-into-a-shopping-bag/.
It was so quick, easy, and fun. Even her older sister wanted to make one. They both were running around the house looking for shirts they could use!
