My Second Friday Night Sew In

Burp Cloths is what I worked on for the Friday Night Sew In hosted by
Heidi!
This is what I give for baby gifts a lot of the time.
Sometimes I add in a bib to match.
I actually started one but didn't get finished.

These are so simple to make and very usable. I followed the instructions on Moda Bake Shop.
I love having a certain time to sew because it seems that there is always an excuse. Something always happens to keep me from sewing. This gives me accountability. I can't wait to see what the others did last night. Go check out what my Mom did. She is the smartest & most talented lady I know. She is my hero! Go check out Heidi's blog to see what the others did. Scroll down on her post to see the Mister Linky list. (November 10 post on Heidi's blog).
I am ready to do it again! Thanks Heidi!

Val, I love these burp clothes. What a clever idea. So many of our young friends are starting to have babies and this I will keep in mine. Love your fabric choices.

Great idea and I love your fabric and the burp cloths as gifts. I've already visited with your Mom and love her Dutch Doll quilt. You both are very smart!

The burp cloths are so cute, Val, and make such a nice gift - ALWAYS needed.

The sew in was really fun. As you said, it is all about accountablity and it was fun to think about the others participating too.

Val - I love the fabrics you used on these. Those are great baby gifts!

I had so much fun doing this with all of you. I'm going to get another one planned for early Debember.
