Fashionista Burpie Cloths...

I believe I've mentioned that our 8th little grandbaby -- a girl -- is due within the next couple of months. If she's anything like her mother she will be a miniature fashionista. She won't be able to help herself. It will be in her blood.

To facilitate in her development of those sure-to-be inherent character traits, I made her some burp cloths last night.  Not just any fabric would do. I used some of my favorite designer prints for these little numbers....


I paired these designer prints with different colors of absorbent terry cloth. Not that these burp cloths will need to be particularly absorbent... I'm quite sure she will rarely need her little rosebud mouth patted dry, however, on the off chance...


These burp cloths are rectangular in shape. The finished measurements are 12 inches x 18 inches...


I hope she likes them!

These are darling...every little girl should have a dozen for sure. Even if the don't spit up, they sure can drool ;D

Oh my, how cute are they?! I would love those for my imaginary baby, but would be afraid to use them. They're so nice.

I bet the little lady will love them. To look at occasionally, of course. Not to use. I'm sure she won't ever burp, or (heaven forbid) spit up. I just hope my own children are as polite someday...

Your littl grandbaby will adore these. And so will her mother. Are they in your Etsy shop? I'm in love!

I love these! Do you have a tutorial? What kind of fabric did you use other than the terry cloth?

I love these! I would love a tutorial and to know what kind of fabric is used on the other side with the terry cloth. aprilrinner85@gmail.com
