It's been sooo very hot here in Hotlanta, except for playing golf in the early morning 2 days a week, I'm spending all my time indoors. So besides rehab-ing chairs, I've been doing a bit of sewing. I needed some baby gifts and decided to embellish a much used baby item... burp cloths! I also made a matching bag to use as wrapping for the burp cloth gift.
I started with colorful fabric:
and a package of cloth diapers:
I cut 5" wide strips of the fabric and sewed it to the diaper at both ends:
I sewed the corners and turned them right-side out enclosing the end of the diaper, turned under the long raw edge, and zigzag stitched the edge closed.
Voila! Two burp cloths in a coordinating gift bag...
... ready for the new baby!
So... of course I had to make some for my sweet grandson and...
... I decided to embellish them a bit using my Brother Embroidery machine.
