Charlotte's nursery. Also, see the detail in the butterfly pattern? Love it.

If you look at the ankle, you can see the ruffle trim just under the strap (Mary Janes!) and sweet pearl buttons.
Also, not to detract from the cardigan, but can you tell I'm starting to learn how to use my new camera? I've been reading about photography (a little) and playing with various settings. I like how blurred and buttery the backgrounds are in these photos. It really draws attention where I want it - on the cardigan.

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.
