IN NEED OF A QUICK BABY GIFT?


That is me today, need a quick gift....I do mean quick. I cut corners every which a way.....First, it should be padded....got rid of that....and next, I just serged around the edges. The pink one you see is done with the padding and pinked with shears on the end. The rest, just real quick....and for those of you who need a drool rag when visiting some of these sites and seeing their new material, well....these will work well for that.


And I can't forget something to take it in....the credit goes to lazygirl

I used a shoe string for the handles....so it took me all of 15 minutes to make this little gift bag tote.

i first looked at the burp bibs they reminded me of fancy kotex lol

Ahh, I've done these! I keep inexpensive dollar store towels on hand to be the "padding" in the middle, cut fabric choice & towel to size and use the pillow case method to turn them. Then I can edge them with a simple straight stitch to keep it all in place or decorative stich or rick/rack. It IS quick! :)

Love it Barb. You are one smart cookie. Never would have thought of shoe strings.

very cute "drool" clothes. I'm a huge survivor fan, and I saw where this year it will be in Samo or Soma....is this where you are? Forgive me if I spelled it wrong or totally screwed it up.

Those burp cloths are so much nicer that throwing a cloth diaper onto one's shoulder. Great tote too!
