Summer Crafts

This post takes me back a couple months to the summer. My mom got a new sewing machine that is so awesome! The coolest thing is that you can embroider and do numerous cute and fancy stitches. Well she had seen this idea of how to make burp cloths out of cloth diapers, so she ordered some diapers and waited for me to show up this past summer to make some with her. Here are some of my favorites that I attempted.

I ended up giving many of the baby girl ones to my dear friend Lisa because she recently had her baby girl just a couple weeks ago. Their last name is Bird, so of course I had to put "baby bird" on at least one of the burp cloths. I also had to document, what I thought were the cutest flower bows and socks ever. I went a little crazy at The Quilted Bear, but I just can't pass up the opportunity to buy little girl things when I get the chance.
