And done. Finally.

I had such issues with getting the baby gift for the shower next week done. This is the reason I start planning and getting things early! You never know what is going to happen to mess you all up! I bought a package of cloth diapers to make burp rags with 3 weeks ago. The first package went to pot after I prewashed them. Our water is awful and it left brown spots on the fabric and it made the fabric inside twist to where I couldn't get it to lay straight. Those just went in the trash. So I went back and bought another package...that turned out to be flat folded which wouldn't have worked for this project. Enter trip three yesterday. I finally got what I needed and finished up 12 burp cloths. These six are for the shower next week.
I also made her 3 bows and bought coordinating head bands. I don't know if my friend even likes bows (I know they are not everybody's thing) so I just did very simple ones for her.
And I found these two outfits at Wal-Mart for $2.50 each and couldn't pass them up. For real, how cheap is that? And they are adorable!
These are the burp cloths I made for another friend who is having a baby in May.
I also finally found the ribbon to finish off the ribbon topiaries for the baby shower. Now all I need to do is get the punch ingredients and decorate. Everything else is done! I'm excited to see how it all comes together!

So cute! It's funny b/c I am also working on burp clothes for my friend too. I absolutely love all of the fabric you used on yours. The bows are awesome too.

I've never known anyone to have as many water problems as you. The burp cloths are all super cute.
