Maternity Skirt for me

Want to see the Burp Cloths?
Of course you do!
I was at my local quilting shop a little while ago while I was getting some heavy weight interfacing for another project when I spied some Michael Miller Ta Dot in the remnant box. As soon as I saw it I knew it was destined to become a couple of pretty burp cloths. I was so excited and couldn't wait to get it home, washed and cut into lengths. Fast forward a couple of weeks and that is about how long it took to get it ironed and cut (Friday afternoon during nap time to be precise!) I used this tutorial loosely, and changed the sizes to suit myself (I mostly used Canning Vale cloth nappies folded in half with the two boys). For backing I went a little bit green and used a soft white towel that we have had for YEARS. Nothing quite like a little re-purposing. All up they cost under $4 for both of them.
Now my stitching isn't perfect (there are a couple of wobbles there), but I am pretty darned happy with how they turned out! :) I just get these little bursts of happiness when I look at them. I just love their colour!
So I hope your weekend has been a full and enjoyable one, filled with little pops of happiness sprinkled throughout.
Till next time...
