So the little tutu wasnt the only thing I was busy making.
I was also hard at work making these "boutique like" burp cloths.
I've made them tons of times before,
actually even sold a bunch at craft fairs.
They're a really cool way to personalize a burp cloth or dress it up to be fashionable. Cause well lets face it, it's gonna be covered in puke any bit of help to make it look nice is a good thing...and it makes a nice gift, who doesnt need burp cloths?
I pick up a back of Gerber Tri-Fold cloth diapers. Make sure its the tri-fold!
Then pick out the fabric you want to use.
Cut the fabric in a strip slightly larger than the middle fold on the daper.
Iron back the edges where you'll be making the hem. I have a picture of that coming up later.
I like to cut the corners at an angle so that when you sew it down you get a nice corner with nothing sticking out.
Just like a present!
Pin it down to keep it straight as you sew.
You might also want to wash and dry them first because they will shrink.
I dont, just cause I'm lazy, and I know they'll wash em again before baby is born anyway.
Here is where I iron the fabric flat where I am going to sew.(yes I made more than one... more than one shower you know)
Here it is pinned.
The type of stitch is up you to. Here I just used a basic stitch. I've used the zig zag pattern before and the really tight zig zag one that covers the entire edge.
How's my sewing ligo? hahaha can you tell I aint no pro? LOL
Here is the finished product.
I always make them in pairs, cause two is better than one right?
Ok that was cheezy. Sometimes I make matching ones and sometimes I make different fabrics in the same color scheme.
Great gift I'm tellin ya!
