Flannel burp cloths

Made a stack of flannel burp cloths for my breeder friend and embellished with owl appliques and stitched initials.
Here baby, puke and spit up on my hand wrought work.

Baby pants!

Watched "The Baby Show" on Martha Stewart's television show and Heather Ross demonstrated how to sew baby bloomers from her Weekend Sewing book which I just happened to own. Woo Hoo!

Will totally make more but next time, I'll sew French seams instead of the prescribed pinked seams. The elastic thread in the bobbin trick was super easy. And of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone so I added a tattoo inspired bird on the back. It's almost like baby's very first tramp stamp!
