I am working with WholePort - they sell a bunch of crafting supplies! This month they sent me some fun baby print flannel fabric! So I got to work making some things for our baby boy due April 7th 2013!
First up were Easy cute burp clothes:
Here is what you will need:
Cloth Diapers (I got my 5 pack at target)
Sewing Macine with sewing supplies (like thread, scissior, etc)
1. Cut your fabric so that it is about 1/2 longer then the sids and wide enough so that you can fold it around the end of the cloth diaper. I make my about 6 inches wide so that it would be a 3 inch wide stripe.
2. Use an iron to press a 1/4 inch fold on all four sides. This will give a finished edge.
3. Fold in half and pin around the botton of the burp cloth. Sew on all 4 sides as close to the edge as you can.
4. Repeat for the other side.
Make as many as you want... they make a great baby shower gift!
I also make a blanket for the crib with the cute fabric and some soft minky. I just cut out my crib size blanket (I used one I had from before... about 45X60 inches). Sewed with right sides together leaving an opening to turn right side out. Then turned it right side out and top sewed all around the edge closing the opening and done!
I also made a Crinkle Tag blanket!
