Baby Stuff

Rachel (my son's girlfriend) and I went to a baby shower yesterday. The couple is expecting a baby boy in a few weeks. I decided to make something cute and useful!



I made two burp cloths and two matching bibs. What new mom doesn't need these? Funny, I had never heard of burp cloths until I started reading blogs! When my kids were babies, we just threw a receiving blanket or cloth diaper over our shoulder. I like this idea much better. I used an Amy Butler print for the fronts, and the backs are a super soft chenille. I lined them with soft absorbent cotton.  And, because I had fabric left over, I just had to make these!

  

Aren't they cute? If you read my last post, you'll know that there will be many more burp cloths and bibs in my future! I'm also thinking of adding some to my etsy shop. What do you think?  Have a great day, and happy sewing!        Anne
