Someone I worked with was having a baby, or rather his wife was. What to make… I don’t have kids, so I didn’t know for sure what one would need that could easily be handmade. I consulted with my fellow hoecakes who have children and they told me burp cloths were the thing to make. So I did and boy oh boy was it easy!
I followed the advise of Elisa and got some minky fabric and a coordinating kiddy fabric. I sewed the wrong sides together (except for the last two inches). Then I used that two inch section to turn in right side out and sewed up the hole. All done. It was that easy. I love easy!
A couple of months later another coworker was pregnant. I whipped these up for her. (I also whipped up a couple of those fabulous pillow cases for her two kids so they didn’t feel left out). This time around I added some ribbon around the edges. I think it turned out lovely.
One thing to keep in mind when you are making these is: Don’t kill yourself trying to make them perfect. They are going to be vomited on regularly!
Here are a couple that my fellow hoecake Misty made. I think they are adorable!
