Beautiful Weather ♥ Books ~ Burp Cloths ~ Baby Sweaters

A busy week-end and beautiful weather,  I couldn’t ask for more.  I got a chance to sit outside and read.  It is always nice to find a good book and relax in the fresh air.  I’ve started another book.  This one is about a yarn store and a knitting group.  It’s not my usual type of book and I’m not feeling pulled to sit down with it, but I’ll give it a shot.

I managed to get my manicure and pedicure in.  Now I’m ready for sandals and my hands are soft and snag-free for knitting.

The baby sweater is coming along nicely.  I finished one sleeve and I am about halfway along on the second sleeve.  I will be working on it more today as I sit outside.  It is really nice out already this morning.

I also made another trip to JoAnn’s.  I read their flyer wrong and thought that the flannel was half off.  It will be, but not until next week-end for their holiday sale.  I did find a few remnants so the trip wasn’t a total waste.  

The reason I was looking for flannel is that I was asked for a few more burp cloths.  I made up a dozen or so of  them and I’ll be making up a few more so I have some on hand for the next request.  They really are nice to give as a gift. The store-bought ones just don’t compare.  Then again, when does anything store-bought compare to handmade?  I was looking online for a tutorial on making burp cloths to link with the photos, but I can’t find any that are like the ones I make.  Most of what I found online uses store-bought diapers and just dresses them up.  If anyone is interested in making a few and doesn’t know how, I will put together some instructions for you.  Just let me know.

    Sounds like you had a busy weekend. Are the burp cloths flannel on both sides? The bright colors are so cheerful.

  2. klccreations Says:

    Janet, Yes, a very busy week-end. The burp cloths are flannel on both sides. I usually use a plain color on one side and a print on the other. I cut the fabric 12″x19″ (11″x18″ finished), round the corners, turn in-side out and top stitch. Some people like the bright colors, others like the more traditonal baby prints, so I make a variety. Thanks for asking.

    I would like to have the instructions. I just found out my cousin is due in September and would like to make a few for her. I made a knitted one put would like to try some out of flannel.
    Thanks for the offer.

      Hi Wanda, It is fun to make things for new babies. I’m sure your cousin would love your handmade gifts. I will put together a little tutorial very soon so you can get started.

    Burp cloths are probably one of the most useful cleanup tools for babies…
