I made some baby washcloths for a friend’s new baby. Very quick and easy to make. Some matching burp cloths would have been fun. Maybe for next time we see the cutie-pie.
They are just organic cotton terry that I bought at Alewives Fabrics (the terry is not online however), and some flannel on the other side that I picked up at Jo-Anns. I sewed them wrong sides together, leaving a space for turning. Turned, poked out the corners, ironed, and then top-stitched around (closing up the opening) using a zig-zag stitch. Easy-peasy. Well, except the terry cloth is a bit wonky to work with. I had a tiny bit leftover and I made a little mitt with it.
Like the table that they are sitting on? It’s the coffee table that my husband finished a little while ago. I love it! He’s making beds next – for our guest room and our room. I’d better get started on my Turning Twenty quilt that I’m going to make for us! I bought a great fat quarter collection of Amy Butler prints at Alewives when I was there last.
