One of my best friends Mary Beth, who I’ve known for over twenty years, just had her first baby. Andrew Brighton (called Brighton) was born on Wednesday.
Isn’t he the sweetest?!
So I made her some custom burp cloths. The first set of burp cloths I’ve ever made! I found a set of three white burp cloths at Hobby Lobby for only $9.99. I searched through my stash of fabric and found this fun orange polka dot fabric and some coordinating colored fabric.
I used Heat’n Bond iron on adhesive on the backside of each of the fabrics. You basically lay it on the fabric and run a hot iron over it for about 20-30 seconds.
Once the adhesive is attached, you just peel away the paper layer. Don’t forget this step. I do frequently and then have to start all over.
I cut the letter “B” out of one of my fabric pieces using my Silhouette CAMEO.
Then attached it to the burp cloth by holding a hot iron on it for 30 seconds, constantly moving the iron.
Then I added some decorative strips as well.
I cut the strips with my Stampin Up Sizzix Tasteful Trims Die.
I also cut several other pieces using this die and arranged them on the other two burp cloths.
I was going to stop here but I started thinking about all the wear and tear these things go through. So I decided to add stitching across each piece.
And here is what they looked like when they were finished!
Kinda cute, huh? I was pretty impressed with myself for my first try!
I hope baby Brighton likes them!
Congratulations Mary Beth & John!
