I made something else......
« on: April 25, 2008, 06:26:17 PM »
Burp Cloth out of a cloth diaper.   :-)

This was the first one I made, I made a couple mistakes (I'm not going to tell you what they are :p ). 

I realized after I took the pictures that it probably wasn't too smart to take a picture of it on the quilt because it kind of gets lost but I'm not going to retake it.  The one of the back is how you "enclose" the sides of the diaper with a strip of fabric and it kind of gets lost on the quilt.  I noticed on Etsy.com that a lot of the "boutique" type burp cloths only had the strip of fabric going down the middle.  Some of them had an applique or embroidered name but they mainly were pretty plain, which isn't so bad because it is after all just a cloth to wipe baby puke up with.  :puke:  I decided to machine embroider an owl on this one.  I think the owl goes well with the fabric.  I didn't have the right colors of thread that the embroidered owl called for but I think it looks ok.  I think if I start doing this for other baby gifts I will do them in sets of three all with different but coordinating fabric. 


I have the directions on how to make these if anyone is interested.






Back (or front if you don't do applique)

You wouldn't by chance be in need of any burp cloths would you?  :p  I'm afraid they are going to be addicting.

Umm, that would be a big fat, unchallenged and absolutely sure, no...lol

Maybe I could figure out something appropriate to put away for my daughter for when she's off on her own or something.  :-* :-*

I adore your quilts. One of these days I'll have to pester you with dollars in hand to make me one.

Adorable! The owl is a nice touch!

I went through so many of those cloth diapers when the little Belle was a baby.
I can see November 2 from my house!!!

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

BEG that is not a burp cloth!  It's an heirloom!

I see the mistake!  The owl has four points on one talon and three on the other.

BEG, you're so talented.  My SIL's expecting my 3rd nephew in June, I might hit you up for some loveys for the new baby. 


Edited to add:  We've always called burp cloths loveys.  :)

BEG, you are very talented. If you ever need any extra income, you might want to sell them on Ebay or another outlet.

Ok, I made another one.  First I had some wings from Wing Stop, their fries are to die for then I made another one.  This one went much smoother and a lot quicker.  I think I am officially addicted.

If I make it with a cloth diaper there will be no need for leg holes.  I hope I don't stick you with the diaper pin.
