Western Baby Duds

Western Bibs

Denim, flannel and bandana bibs


I have just finished making a bunch of baby items for a little girl and now I am focused and things for a baby boy. All of this is western using several different fun prints. As a short cut I have been using my serger with complementing thread, this saves me the time of turning under and ironing the edges before sewing them. Just today I was able to complete 2 blankets, 2 bibs, 2 burp cloths and a changing pad. All of this plus the normal things like dinner and homework help.

More Burp Cloths

I just finished another batch of Burp Rags these I listed on my ETSY site since Nikki has been given me so many kudos recently.

These adorable burp rags have cheerful pattern of turtles and dots are 100% cotton prewashed for shrinkage and softness and lined with warm and natural batting. Each one has the print on one side and solid color flannel on the back. Contoured and measuring approx. 21″ by 10″ they provide ample coverage for even the big messes. The edges have been cut and frayed, they will get better looking with each wash.

I just layed the flannel and batting out together and cut a rectangle then I contoured in the sides. I stitched together using a wide seam allowance and made little cuts along the seam allowance to allow for the fraying. I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
