    Here are the gifts I have been making for my granddaughter who will arrive in June. They say its a girl, but if its a boy I may have to "Pay it Forward" to someone who is having a girl!!

    Thanks for Looking.....

    Very nice!! My first grandbaby is due in May and I have been so bad, I havn't made anything yet, except a couple of nursing covers.
    What did you make your burp cloths out of? I was thinking about making some with flannel on the front and maybe terry cloth on the other side. Or flannel on one side and a nice print on the other. Mine is supposed to be a boy.

    Very pretty, I hope it is a girl, so she can enjoy all these pretty things.

    Our oldest Granddaughter turned 24 today. She is the light of my life.

    I just used flannel on both sides. I taped two pieces of computer paper together and traced a dessert plate on each end and then just drew the curved line to connect the lines, to make the pattern. It was so easy. I did put batting in the middle, but I am not sure you would have too. When I was making them, my husband came in and said that my son in law wouldn't like the flowers. So I made the camo cloths for him...

    They are all so cute !! I'm with you, I'm expecting my first grandchild in May. They don't want to know if it's a boy or girl, they want to be surprised !!

    LOL!! He wouldn't like flowers!!! Oh Well, some men are that way!!!
    I'm not sure they would need batting but flannel would make them more absorbent than regular cotton fabrics.

    I make my burp cloths using a piece of fabric sewn on a cloth prefolded diaper. I'll locate the link and add it here: http://projectsforyournest.blogspot.com and in her search box you can type in Basket of Burpies and she has a tute for it. Very easy and according to my DIL they are better than the store bought ones.

    I love the baby quilts. The fabric in the first one is darling and I love the owl in the second one. Cute bunny too. And the burp cloths are great. Thank for sharing.
