Newest item – bibs and burp cloths

A friend of mine is expecting, and I was going to buy her a bib set as a small gift.  But as I looked through the shelves over at the baby store, I just didn’t see anything that really struck me. So I finally told her I’d just go home and make one for her. I wanted to make her the kind of bib I would have loved when my kids were babies – a terry cloth back. I bought a gray towel from the store and headed home.  From that towel, I was able to make 2 burp clothes and 4 bibs using a gray woodland themed fabric.  I loved it, actually, so I decided that this could be another way to use some of those awkward-sized pieces of fabric. So I bought some terry cloth from JoAnn’s, but most of it came from cut up towels I’d bought.

I really got in to making them and worked on the bulk of them while watching Stranger Things 3 with my husband.  I even put him to work turning them right-side out.

I’m happy with how they all turned out.  I decided to stick to cutting up cheap towels because the terry cloth on the back had more plush than the terry cloth off the bolt at JoAnn’s.
