Fun Things

I've been working on some fun things, burp cloths for a baby shower I'm invited to.  Following this tutorial from TheThinking Closet, it was so easy and fast.  All the little tips she gave were great!  I used Gerber Premium cloth diapers.

For example, using the cardboard for a template to create a straight fold.
Using the walking foot edge as a guide.

Works on both sides.  

I left about an inch of fabric to fold over.  Press down about a quarter of an inch and pin.

Pinned and ready to sew.
All finished.  
 The center fabric is "Ticklish" by Me & My Sister Designs.  The other two are flannels from Northcott, no designer or fabric name was listed.   Great baby gift!  Go check out the blog I used!
