I have been sewing and stock piling all kinds of things he will “NEED”, said the smiling grandma.
I took a break from sewing bibs, triangle banner flags, pillows, curtains and some secret things to make some burp cloths. Yes, every baby needs fancy schmancy burp cloths.
When did cloth diapers become so pricey? Good gravy.
First, I found the pattern a couple of years ago from Suzanne. She is an amazing seamstress and shares her patterns. I send her a thank you note each time I borrow one. justanotherhangup.blogspot.com/2011/01/baby-burpies-easy-way.html
The pictures will help show you how I changed ordinary cloth diapers into fancy burp cloths. The old Switch a Roo! I also used up all sorts of colored ric rac, that I found in my jar of bits and pieces.
Oh, and Grandgirlie number 1, politely asked for a rainbow colored dress for her birthday. I had to take a day off of sewing baby things to sew a grown up 4 year old dress. Oh yes, this grandma remembered to sew a jingle bell inside the dress and fill the pockets with stickers and other goodies.
Being a Grandma is one of the best “jobs” in the whole world. Have I mentioned lately, how much I LOVE my job?
