It's always nice to find fun fabrics for boys.
Burp cloths are such simple gifts to whip up for new babies, and easy to personalize too. I made these four in an hour or so. It's always so hard to gauge how long I spend on a given project because I rarely work on it from start to finish in one sitting, without interruptions.
I used a cardboard template to iron the edges straight and get a uniform size.
I seriously need a new ironing board cover!
I won this starch alternative at the Quilt Sitter's meeting at my LQS. If you show a quilt you made, you are entered for a door prize. The first time I showed anything, I won; great incentive to keep showing off. I usually never starch anything, and was pleasantly surprised how much cleaner it made my sewing.
