All About Baby

I apologize for all of the baby centered posts lately, but hey, I have a newborn and life revolves around him.  I made these burp cloths right before he came.  It's just taken me a couple of months to get the pictures taken and actually get them into a post.

I really like how they turned out though.  All of them have an absorbent minky fabric on one side and then a fun (at least I thought so) printed cotton on the other.

They were fairly easy to put together except for the ric rac trim.  It was a pain in the rear end and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the amount sticking out from the edge to be consistent, so just don't look too close!


I made three sets of burp cloths each with coordinating fabric.  This one with the farm animals and gingham check is my favorite though.  Aren't those little pig, sheep, and cows adorable? 

I know you're thinking I'm a bit hormonal still since I'm a bit over the top about these, and you may just be right.  Oh well...I still L.O.V.E the fabric!  I've also gone a bit bonkers over huge ric rac.  It makes me smile.


You may have also noticed I didn't use your typical baby blues and soft greens that you see on so many thing made for baby boys.  I was just a bit over it this time around since Jack was boy number four.  Instead, I really loved the bright, fun colors that pop.  

Honestly, if girls get those fun bright pink colors all over blog land, why can't my boy have some bright orange?


I had a blast making something so practical just a bit more fun and original.  Please understand, it's the only excitement I'm getting lately. :)
