My friend Heather had baby #3 at the end of last month, a beautiful, darling, sweeter than sweet, teeny tiny girl.
I’ve known for ages this baby was coming and so I’ve been carefully searching for just the right baby gift. Her mama is also a sewer of all things baby and I so wanted to give her something handmade, with my signature, so to speak, while still being something she would love and use over and over again with this babe.
I settled on one of my all time favorite girlie girl burp cloth bundles and a bib using a piece of vintage 50s fabric I’ve been saving for just this occasion. There was just enough of the 50s fabric to also make a little tissue cozy for her diaper bag.
I love, love, love the embroidered ribbon in this burp cloth bundle! I typically would never purchase this type of trim for a burp cloth. See, it costs about $8/yd … yeah. But, I found it and it’s orange companion when they were 90% off and purchased every last inch! So glad I did. It bugged me just a little that all the pinks weren’t the same shade … so I didn’t photograph the entire gift … oh so silly. Thankfully Heather did, so you can see the whole little ensemble here. Don’t you just love that bumper!
