Last Monday, I went to a baby shower for two beautiful women at my church, Hannah and Natalie. Hannah had her baby boy, Oliver, about a month ago, and Natalie is due any day now with a baby girl. Jones Design Company‘s Emily Jones blogs about her stationery designing business and other crafty things she takes on. She’s also a mom of four with a young baby, so some of her projects are baby-related. Last week as I was browsing I came across a post/tutorial for adorably baby burp cloths, and I decided to make some of my own for these two new babies. In addition I made a flower pin from JDC and a bow tie pin from Prudent Baby.
I already owned the dark blue starry night fabric, the light blue, and the yellow floral, and I purchased the adorable animal print and stripe print at Jo-Ann’s.
I lined Oliver’s cloths with light blue terry cloth, and baby girl’s with light green.
I loved this peach floral fabric I found — and I have some left over! :) I tried a practice flower with thread because I was running low on hot glue sticks, but I used hot glue on the final like the tutorial suggested. It was easier and worked better than thread, because it allowed the petals to poke out more than lay flat.
I hot glued a pin back. Perfect for little sweaters, hats, and shirts.
I finished the cloths with a tie of ribbon, and pinned on the pins.
Congratulations, Natalie and Greg, Hannah and David! Enjoy your beautiful babies.
