Baby Shower Gift

Now this was a fun project!
Talk about EASY!!

As soon as I saw these baby burb rags on Homemade by Jill,
I knew I had to make them:

There is a woman at work who is expecting her second child.
Her first child is a little boy and this one is to be a girl,
so our department is planning a pink
baby shower full of girly stuff.

I just loved these fuzzy little ends on these burp rags.
And they were so simple to make!

First I copied the pattern.
I just hand drew it,
but she DOES offer a free pattern!

I cut out the batting when I cut out the fabric -
(I used Warm & Natural Needled Cotton Batting)

Then I sewed around the edges about a half inch, and across the center, and finally, pulling back the fabric, I just cut the batting that was outside the edges.

If you follow her simple tutorial, you won't have a single problem.

Then I made cuts in the fabric that was left on the edges,
about 1/4 inch apart, and then I washed it - and ta da!

That adorable edging!

You can see in the photo above what the burpee
looks like BEFORE it is washed...

In addition, I found ANOTHER great tutorial for a
different style of really cute burp rags on this site:

See, aren't they great looking??

Her tutorial is also very simple,
and her idea for packaging them is adorable!

Here is my take on her project...

And you can find a free printable for a label on her site.
(I didn't use it but you might like to! - I was out of colored ink...)

Won't this be a great gift?

I'm so excited to give it to my co-worker!

I hope you get the chance to be creative today!
