Made for Charlotte: Burp Cloths
With my previous babies, I packed my diaper bag with two burp cloths. One was the standard, white type that I used for nursing or when no one was looking. The second burp cloth was the cute one I only brought out in public. It was attractive, but not very absorbent. These new burp cloths from my friend are fantastic: fashionable and functional.
Backing the chenille in the attractive fabric of your choice is easy peasy. (Layer right sides together --> stitch --> turn --> topstitch --> add additional quilting stitches for stability if desired.) Lisa backed all three of these burp cloths in feminine fabric designed by Amy Butler.
These were the perfect homemade baby shower gifts - useful, attractive, and stitched with love.
