The tutorial I used for the burp clothes are from my amazing creative blogging friend, Amy from
Diary of a Quilter. I love her easy and straightforward Easiest Burp-Cloth Tutorial Ever and I love how my burp clothes turned out. I am planning on making a few more, I just need to get more cloths!!
I felt a great sense of accomplishment about these bumper pads. I didn't know exactly what I was doing and I didn't follow a pattern (typical), but I am really impressed with how they turned out. The flannel is so sweet and I love the stars!! I also love that the flannel is still baby but all boy. I bought the 1/2" thick foam padding at Joann and measured the sides of the bassinet and went to town without too many mistakes. I just need to figure out how to make a crib sheet with elastic thread for his mattress pad. If anyone has any tips, I would love to hear about them!!
