Yesterday's Craft

Yesterday afternoon, Q and I started in on the burp cloths for Lachlan. Here's a couple photos for you:

When I first decided on doing this a few weeks ago, I was just going to put ribbon down the seams of the cloth diapers; yesterday, Q went ahead with that plan, but I decided that I'd try something a little bit different. I took a bunch of scrap fabric, ironed down a 1/4" on either edge as a seam allowance, pinned them on the cloth diapers and sewed them down.

On the first one , I missed part of the fabric on the back, so I learned that I had to pin through all the layers and then sew in a little less than 1/4". DJ had been looking for something to hand sew, so she sewed down my error. Glad I could provide her with something to do. We made thirteen burp cloths altogether.

Wow! I'm feeling so industrious. Too bad nesting comes to a screeching halt and sleep deprivation kicks in. Ah well, use it while I've got it, I guess.

Oh yah, one thing that I thought was fun was that the cloth in the lower photo is scrap fabric from the nursing cover I made a few weeks ago. It was great to be able to use that again. I think it's so clean and cheerful.
