Here are the steps I took to make some burp cloths and a cute little tag snuggle blanket:
Next up: Tag snuggle blanket (I call it this because I didn't make one that's big enough to cover a child, just big enough to carry around and rub your face all over it. Because that's precisely what I did with the soft fleece fabric I purchased:
I used to be HUGE into scrap booking...but along came kids...I said goodbye to free time...and sold MOST of it. BUT, I did hang onto my ribbon. Thank goodness for that because for the tag snuggle, I didn't have to purchase any. I found 6 different ribbon's that I liked, cut them to a length that I thought would be good, and then folded it and pinned it onto the blanket. For the blanket, I cut out a nice square piece of both the flannel pattern and gray fleece, pinned the pretty sides together and THEN went through and pinned my ribbon. I pinned A LOT. The gray fleece was VERY slick when sewing so the more pins, the better.
So there you have it. Now, I calculate that in total, I spent $10 on 5 burp cloths and 1 tag snuggle blanket. If you want to get down to the nitty gritty (ribbon pieces, thread) MAYBE $11. It was inexpensive, easy to make, and so much fun!!!
Friday will probably be another DIY of some sort...what? Who knows. Or perhaps some recipes...hmmm...the blogging options are endless!!! Until Friday!
