Martha mentioned these on her recent post, but I wanted to show some more pics for yer.
Back in the early stages of my pregnancy, I came across this burp cloth tutorial via my blogging buddy sabbespot's blog. I thought they were so cute and loved the endless fabric possibilities.
After sewing a couple things (two summers ago), I hadn't made anything really since those first few projects.
I emailed the link to this tutorial off to my friend Erin (who sewed the most gorgeous quilt for her daughter Felicity...you can kinda see it in the background of their picture on this post), who confirmed that this was a novice enough project for a dodo seamstress like me.
So, under Martha's tutelage & supervision, we set up the Sister Sweatshop and got to work:
(my favorite cotton boll fabric from Joann!)
We also did some applique (is that the right term?) on a few of these bibs:
So fun and will make great baby gifts too! I definitely recommend this tutorial if you're looking for an easy sewing project with a sweet result. Thanks for your help, Marth!
*UPDATE forgot to mention, we used plain cream or white flannel as the backs. I'll put a pic on my next post.
p.s. Can we talk about how I hate the term "burp cloth" ??? There's got to be a better one out there...
