We've been busy playing...
and enjoying the fact that temps have finally hit 50 degrees!
Here's the front.
And I love the stripy binding.
I also made these 5-minute burp clothes.
Out of prefold cloth diapers. (these are gerber brand from walmart)
Instructions: Pre-shrink diapers by washing them in hot water. The padded center part will measure about 17 x 7 inches. I cut a fabric to 19 x 9 inches and then ironed in an inch on each side. Then sew along the perimeter with a quarter inch seam allowance.
It's that simple.
I used burp cloths like these when my kiddos were little and women would stop me all the time to ask where I bought them. You can easily make a whole stack of these in an hour and have them ready for all those new mamas out there.
I'm off to take some more bad photos with my new lens. My husband totally surprised me with it last week - he is amazing in so many ways but I love how he supports and encourages all my serious busy-ness out here in blog land. He says he just abides by the saying, "happy wife, happy life."
Hope you find the time to engage in some busy-ness this weekend!
