Where it all began...

I have been making burp cloths for a couple of years now.....since I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. I have always used prefold cloth diapers for burp cloths since they seem to work the best, so.....why not make them look pretty, right? I began making these and giving them as gifts for the many baby showers that I have attended over the past couple of years.

I started off using just regular cotton fabric prints, but I found that these were not initially as absorbent as the flannel that I now use. All of my burp cloths are now made exclusively with flannel. The flannel also seems to get softer and more absorbent with each wash. I know from personal experience that there isn't much that these burp cloths can't handle!

Each burp cloth is approximately 18" x 13". They are also large enough to be used as a changing pad in a "pinch".

These burp cloths are the ultimate accessory for any new mom and make wonderful baby shower gifts!

Now for the part that I am most excited about! As much as I enjoy making baby and children's items and accessories, I am really looking forward to debuting some baby and children's clothing!! I will slowly be introducing these clothing items into my product lists over the coming months. I was able to finish up one example of what is to come. This particular item was inspired by the visit to Just Cupcakes that I was finally able to make yesterday. I have been waiting for an "excuse" to pay them a visit and was finally able to for a baby shower yesterday as well as my daughter's 5th birthday. All I have to say is "Yum!" So, here it is....

I also was able to start on a skirt this afternoon as well...

I'll probably add a couple more flowers to it and then make a shirt to go along with it.
I may even debut a couple of products just for the moms since I love these so much! That way the babies and kids aren't the only ones that get to be 'stylin!
Keep checking back for more exciting clothing products in addition to the baby and children's accessories!
