Since the obvious first thing to do when you find out you are having a girl is to go shopping or make something… I decided to try the latter. I am by no means great at sewing. I do have a serger that makes a lot of projects easier.
I am very timid when it comes to starting a project by myself with no previous instructions (maybe fear of failure???). I saw on Pinterest some very easy burp cloth tutorials that I figured I could probably try with little disappointment.
I had some flannel material I bought on sale probably a year ago with no idea what to do with it. I have plenty of blankets left over from Aidalyn, so Annaleigh is probably okay in that department – she will also be a summer baby and won’t need as heavy blankets as Aidalyn. So a burp cloth it was!
Here is what I did with my appliqued flannel burp cloth:
I cut out an applique that I free handed of a bird body, wing and beak. I just top stitched it onto the burp cloth with a wide and tight stitch.
And this is the obligatory belly shot for the week! I am somewhere between 16 1/2 and 17 1/2 weeks in the picture. Feeling pretty good this week, which is a great change.
Hope you all are well!! What else are some easy sewing ideas for babies???
I feel like motherhood was the most amazing thing that ever happened to me… but I had to discover how to not lose myself in the process.
I teach busy moms how to make simple healthy swaps that make a huge impact on their health and results.
