Baby Gift

IMG_1509

I made a baby shower present for a friend at church this weekend. I love to make baby blankets and burp cloths. Honestly, I wish I had the chance to make them more often. This is the first time I embroidered the baby’s name on the quilt. I was very happy with how it all turned out.

If you want to make this at home, it is very simple.

For the burp cloths you just cover store bought cloth diapers with pretty cotton fabric. I cut the fabric about 19” long and 6.5” inches wide. And then you just iron down the sides, pin it down, and sew it on.

The blanket is a layer of printed cotton fabric, flannel fabric, and a soft cuddly fabric on the back. You simply sew them rights sides together, leaving a small opening. Them flip them right sides out, iron down flat and sew a top stitch around the edge.
