She Sews Again!

I have been eager for a chance to sew something up for baby girl Zoey and after I saw this super easy tutorial at Fussy Monkey Business I knew I had a project to do. I didn't actually follow the tutorial but I did make my own style burp clothes with some $4 towels from Target.

 I raided my fabric stash and set to work making some adorable one of a kind burp cloths.

 Instead of trying something new and buying materials I didn't have on hand I skipped the bias tape and stitched the cloths together good side facing in, flipped them inside out and finished them with a finishing stitch around the edges to give them a nice clean look.

 Within 30 minutes (not counting the bubble bath or trip to the playground in between!) I had eight handmade burp cloths with 4 different adorable fabrics.

 The fabric side is super cute and the towel side is super absorbent- everything one needs in a burp cloth!

  I have such love for this fluffy stack!

Tied up with a cute ribbon these would make an adorable addition to a baby shower gift too!

Very Clever Amanda! I love the baby's name! I had a little girl named Zoe in my class one year and she was absolutely adorable!

Adore them all! Now I must get my sewing machine out of the closet and start sewing again. I've really missed it! We just moved and I've been trying to get the house together...but now I'm itching to sew again! Thanks for the inspiration!

those are adorable! You should be selling those on etsy. I have a couple "fancy" burpclothes and I always use those before I use the boring white ones.

Love your blog, so happy I happened upon it.

My mom made me a bunch of these for Juliette and they were amazing. So much more fashionable than the store bought ones!!
