(Dun…Dun…Duh…*pathetic theatrical music*)
And you don’t dare go tell your husband that maybe you aren’t as smart as you thought you were.
Later you’ll start psyching yourself out that “Maybe it wasn’t THAT amazing of an idea anyway”,
and “Anyone with a little sense could have figured it out.”
Essentially the “brilliant” part of my idea was to use thrifted T-shirts to make burp cloths.
Soft. Absorbent. Perfect.
So I grabbed the flannel and terry cloth that I had leftover from the boppy covers,
and the changing pad covers. Then pretty much did exactly what Rae describes in her tutorial.
(Try using a walking foot if you are scared of sewing knits.)
The only thing I added was to stitch a smaller rectangle in the center to keep the two layers
from getting wonky after continuous trips through the laundry.
|Cuz’ you can all see that super pale rectangle of stitches in the middle right?|
Now I’m sure some of you are making an odd face and wondering why this seemed so smart, but just trust me. At the time it was about the most genius thing that I had ever thought of! I mean aren’t you a tiny bit tired of seeing people add ribbon and ric rac to pre-made gerber burp rags? Don’t get me wrong, those are really adorable!
I just kinda felt like I was being original for a change.
