I have been dying to sew up lots of cute baby stuff, but we are currently in the middle of a move so my sewing has slowed down quite a bit. One thing I have accomplished is a rag quilt. It was so quick and easy! I was able to put it all together in just a few days during Linnaea’s nap time. I think it is just perfect for a baby blanket 🙂
I followed THIS tutorial– the only difference is that I used 5″ squares instead of 7″ squares.
Don’t you just LOVE those bright colors! (Please forgive my phone pic….)
With less than 11 weeks left until the baby is due, I have really started sewing like crazy to get some things prepared for her arrival. I’ll be sure to share all my projects and the tutorials I used to make them. I’ve found that making things myself has been a HUGE money saver for us! I’m a big sale shopper (and you all know my addiction to thrift stores and up-cycling old things!), so I’ve managed to get all of my supplies at half price or less!
The first project I wanted to share was baby burp rags. A friend of mine shared this tutorial with me (from Cloud9 Fabrics) and I LOVE them! They are super quick and easy to throw together. I made 8 of them, and it only took me a little over an hour from cut to finish. And this is a great way to use up some of those spare fat quarters you have laying around! Each fat quarter will make 2 burp rags, and just 1 yard of flannel (for the back) is all you need for a set of 8. So, 4 fat quarters and a yard of flannel later….. This is what I ended up with–
There are 2 of each pattern. Just LOVE them!
