I was so inspired by the fabrics I bought in San Diego, I knew I needed to start my baby sewing. =) So I made burp cloths using this tutorial It was very easy to follow, and as soon I did my test one (the gray and red sailing ship one) I was on a roll! I made six in total. I don't know if that's a good number to stop at - but seeing as how we still have our baby shower to attend, I'm trying to hold off on the sewing to make sure I don't have too much of one thing.
It was my first time working with chenille and terri cloth - and man do they make a mess! Especially cutting into the chenille! It was like white fluff everywhere. Ross came home to pick something up during lunch and he saw the mess and all he did was say "whoa." I turned to him with chenille fluff all over me and couldn't help but smile. He liked the burp cloths though. His favorite was the one with the little frogs.
So even though chenille is messy to cut into - the end result is sooooooo soft! I think I've finally jumped on the chenille band wagon. Glad I picked up two yards while I was in San Diego since I can't get in on the Big Island. I can't wait to use them!!! =)
Happy Sewing everyone!
