So, I think I have said it before, but I am a tad bored. I kept myself busy making and doing before Christmas, and afterwards, I had a bit of a letdown. I came across these over at the Crap I've Made blog (look through the list for burp clothes). When I went to get our knives and scissors sharpened at Joann's last night, I picked up some material to make them. (I already had flat cloth diapers at home - already washed and ready to be used as plain burp clothes.) I picked the grey and black fabric to match my tote bag and clutch. Plus, it doesn't look like it would offend either gender.
I did the first one, just like Char. It went
pretty well. (I pre-washed and dried the material.)
Then I went crazy and tried the material
down the middle, just like this blog
(sans the ribbon).
I made a total of 2 each kind. I will probably make one more tomorrow. They really were fairly easy. The pattern of the fabric made it even easier for a non-sewer like me to hem and cute pretty straight. The only problem I had was the diapers themselves are wonky. They aren't square, and the middle panel is crooked on most of them. Other than that and some machine trouble (Hate that machine. I really will buy a new one - someday.) they were pretty easy.
I took these pictures after the sun went down.
Don't you love CFL bulbs? They are so yellow.
A also bought a yard and a half of this really cute dinosaur fabric. I don't know what I will do with it, maybe a cute dress for my own little t-rex?
