There's no better excuse to get crafty. Weddings and birthing of babies are the fool proof events to light my fire. I think because they have a deadline attached with them. The first is a yarn wreath which I apologize for the lack of a 'how to' portion. It was constructed in the wee hours of the morning and the lighting at that time isn't ideal. Hence my hot glue gun burn. Not pretty.
These are burp cloths turned fancy. If you gotta use something to catch puke, shouldn't it be cute? Just saying.
Wanna know how to do it? Go buy yourself these necessary items.
- Flannel fabric of your choosing
- Cloth diapers
Simple right? I don't do things too fancy. Just a little. Only enough to slightly amaze the less crafty minds.
Step Uno: Cut your fabric slightly larger then the diaper. Pin your cloth diaper to the right side of the fabric, or the side you want showing when it's completed. My cloth diapers had a 'nice side' to them so give yours a quick once over before you pin. Also, note the little gap on the bottom that I left open when pinning. You have to have a way to turn it inside out.
Step Dos: Give it a quick stitching all around the edges. Don't forget to leave a pocket open!
That picture makes it look like I sew in the pitch black. Ryan isn't that mean. I get a candle.
Step Tres: Turn that baby inside out, or right side out, whatever tickles your fancy.
Step Cuatro: Pin that opening closed. Give it a good ironing to make sure it lays the way you want. We are going to do a top stitch around the outside border. I used a quarter inch seam, but you can hug the edge as tight or loose as you please.

So much more fun then boring white right?
If you are of the less crafty population, did it blow your mind? Yeah, I thought so.
