With my little niece making her debut and my cute friend Evonne‘s little guy Vin soon to show his face I borrowed the machine from my mom and got to sewing. Lucky for me, these two are both very forgiving as my seamstress skills are severely lacking.
I started with those items I had already practiced with a few months ago. See all the tutorials in my archive: ribbon embellished burp cloths, super easy car seat cover, descriptive gift tags and more fun baby projects that I ran out of time for this time.
The best thing about these cloth diaper burp clothes is that they absorb so well! I had a major spitter upper and the ones I received to match my receiving blankets were oh so cute, but liquid just runs right off of them right on to me. Nothing like smelling like milk. These have great coverage too. The tiny ones were just not enough for my kiddo.
For Vin, once I had everything sewn I put them all in to a “basket” with a cute nursing cover gift set from Uddercovers (that name slightly disturbs me) which you can try for free by entering the code “onefree.” Pretty cool eh! These are those cool ones that have the boning built in to the neckline so that you can see your baby. This is helpful, especially in the beginning!
The basket is a cd/dvd holder, it is not the prettiest, but is the perfect size to hold two rows of diapers side by side. I have used this for my little guys diapers ever since organizing the changing table/dresser. To top it all off, I had this adorable card that Alish from Sister’s Stuff made for me for the trade secrets swap.
All in all, I was very happy with how it all turned out. Now if I could just figure out how to be in a pic at the shower without being mid bite. At least Emily got a good laugh out of all my frightening photos. 😉
Disclosure: I am an affiliate of Uddercovers so if you do end up heading over there liking there stuff and buying a bunch then I can buy myself a Slurpee. If two of you go I can buy Evonne one too. 😉
