Future Burp Cloths

How fun to be visiting Homemade by Jill again and find just the thing that I need for the future generation of my beloved's family — a tutorial on making burp cloths. Currently, Jill has quite a number of tutorials for making wonderful infant items so I may become tempted with other things if I hang out there too long.

Speaking of infants...perhaps you've heard that *Linds* and *Dawn* are brand new, for-the-first-time-ever paternal grandmothers. I think it's just so cool. If you want to see pictures, all you have to do is click on their names.

A blessed weekend to you all!


  1. They are so lovely but first one has to find those beautiful fabrics.

  2. Considering that we have a little one on the way I need to pop over to see all the sweet baby things. Thanks for the link and have a sweet Saturday!

  3. I don't know of a little one on its way anymore...there were a bunch just born...but I found that JoAnn Fabric was practically giving away counted cross stitch blankets for newborns. All I have to provide is the work.

    Your fabric is so fun!

  4. Oh how cute! And a long way from just throwing a clean cloth diaper over one's shoulder. ,-)

    Mmmm, do they use cloth diapers, anymore? Anywhere? If not, they'd not know what I refer to, now would they? ,-)

    Found a new place for Backgrounds! And she offers some simple ones, and pink ones. So you just know, I had to "Play." :-)

  5. What beautiful fabric's.
    Whoever gets these will be very lucky!
    I have some blankets that my father in laws Mother made for him when he was a baby. They are so beautiful and I look forward to giving them to my children for their babies someday. :)

  6. Hi Vee,
    Do you have little ones on the way in your family?? Or just hoping to have soon? Please stop on over to my blog when you get a moment, I have something for you!
    Hugs, Lisa

  20. love the color of your fabrics Vee. . .maybe I will go have a peek .. you haven't steered me wrong yet. .

  21. Hi Vee!

    Love your sewing room! It looks like such a great place to create and have some fun "me" time. We all need that. Plus it's a great time to meditate and talk to God!

    I've always loved the verse about the lilies of the field, It leaves such a beautiful picture in my head!

    big hugs,Sherry

  22. I love the colors of the fabric choices:-)

    I also enjoyed the Flower Show video... what amazing color and beauty!

    I hope your week is off to a great start.


  23. Such a crazy busy weekend here that I missed this and Sundays' post. I loved the tulips and spring flowers video in the Sunday post above. I hope to be able to visit Amsterdam someday in Spring to see the tulip fields and windmills and ride down the canals.

    I love your new header...did you make it? You are getting talented with photoshop!

    More first time grandmothers joining the club!! :-) It's so exciting.

    Since I don't have a machine, and can't sew, I bought many cute things from ETSY for Leo. There are so many wonderful things for babies now! I just had fun making up a basket of cute things for him for Easter.

    Congrats to the expecting member of John's family!
