Some new burp cloths and a little luck

Today I finished a custom set of burp cloths for a friend of mine who just had a little girl. I haven't made any burp cloths for a few months and I wanted to try something slightly different than my previous ones. I still used a double layer of flannel, but I wanted to showcase some of the fabrics more. So I tried what I consider a more typical burp cloth design. I've seen it a lot online, but there is a reason that so many people use it. It is pretty darn cute. I think that I could dress this up by using flannel other than white in the future (it's just what I happen to be using here) because a lot of people make similar products with gerber diapers. So having colored or printed flannel would set them apart just because they would not be on a white background. I love using flannel instead of the diapers because the flannel is so soft!

Burp Cloths- Pink and Green

All wrapped up and ready to go!

Burp Cloth Package


Oh and I'm so excited to tell you that I won a give away during the sew mama sew day of give aways. I won this from Dena at Tales at Wayne Manor



It is so sweet that she participated and I was lucky to win...there were over 300 entries! So yeah me! Maybe that will help quench my need to buy fabric for myself.
Oh who am I kidding...I've been drooling over tufted tweets for ages and I'm dying to buy the chair fabric in purple!



I keep checking to see if it's come in, but no luck yet. I MUST have it! It's weird what I become obsessed over sometimes.

  1. Your burp cloths are adorable! I like the way you set off the fabric with the checked trim. You definitely need to get the Tufted Tweets purple chairs - I was lucky enough to win a fat quarter bundle, and the darker purple chairs (the ones with the different kinds of chairs) is my favorite. Of course I'm still trying to decide what to make with it...
