Burp cloths and Bibs for Nina's baby shower

Nina's office hosted a baby shower for her today and it was a very nice shower. They were also celebrating 3 birthdays this week so the food was healthy for the expecting momma and rich and yummy for the 3 birthday girls.


I sewed up a stack of soft flannel bibs and burp cloths to take to the shower.
For the burp cloths, I used this tutorial, except mine are a little longer. To draw the round ends, I used 2 large dinner plates. I did not surge my edges but sewed them right sides together and then turned them. I did have fun doing some decorative machine stitching around the edges.

the curved part in the middle fits just beside the burpers neck, , then there is plenty of burp cloth in the front for the baby's head and down the back to protect the burper's back


This is Nina, showing one of the many sweet gifts she received.


On the food table was a very delicious homemade chocolate layer cake and white cupcakes with pink frosting. There were 3 kinds of cheese with crackers, fresh fruit, nuts and Andes candies. Beverages were iced tea, sparkling water and juice and champagne - mostly enjoyed by the 3 birthday girls.

  4. Love the decorative stitching on the burp cloths. Those are like the ones I make but I just turn them. My grandma made them for us.

    Bibs are so cute.

  6. Hi Rhonda,
    How pretty. I thought some of the fabric I sent you could make Nina some baby things from too. I had it left over from Brandy. Nina is so pretty. I love the postage stamp pillows. Miss Candi said tell Theo she has been working at being good. LOL
    Hugs,
