I saw these burp cloths on Etsy and was immediately obsessed, until I saw the asking price of $31 for a set of 4. I do love me some chevron fabric, but I am also blessed with a mother-in-law who knows her way around a sewing machine. All I have to do is send her a picture, or draw up an idea and she knocks it out. How do you ever repay someone for being so generous with such a talent?
This is one of the first sewing projects we worked on together.
She is a very patient instructor! I had the idea for a pillow
for the rocking chair in Logan's room. I decided I loved the lavender
chenille fabric so much I wanted to use it on the reverse for the
pillow cover, then the flower is stitched chenille side up.
Another sewing lesson. I saw a similar bird and owl
at a store, but didn't love the fabrics. So I picked
out my favorites, drew up patterns on newspaper and created
these cuties with my fearless instructor.
We always get out the sewing machine when the in-laws are visiting...I just need to be more confident in making stitches when she isn't visiting (soon, that must happen!!!). Here are the cutie fabrics I just had sent off to Minnesota for her to whip up a couple cozy blankets and burp cloths for baby boy.
Just like I saw on Etsy, right?
I ordered extra of the gray chevron fabric for a
For a snuggly blanket.
Burp cloth copycat...go ahead and call me that!
One more on the copycat train.
Too cute not to have something whipped up in this fabric!
