Guest Blogger - Ginger Snap Crafts - Boutique Burp Clothes

I'm a wife to one awesome guy
& mom to 5 wild & crazy kiddos.
I love to create things, blog, garden, decorate
& most of all be with my family.

I've been blogging for almost 4 years,

& I love keeping a journal of my family,

but I thought our family blog was

getting a little overrun with all my craftiness.

So, I decided it was time to part ways

& start my very own craft blog,

Ginger Snap Crafts. :)

It's a place to share ideas I've found, &

inspire you to create along with me.

Since Michelle is having a new baby, I thought it'd be fun

to share something for all the little guys & gals out there.

Today I'm going to show you how

to make these {cute & easy} burp cloths.

Just letting you know, I don't sew!

So if I can make these anyone can!

I know Michelle is having a boy!

I made these for my sister, & she just had another little girl.

So, you'll have to excuse all the girl colors!

All you'll need is some ribbon, thread, cloth diapers & a sewing machine.

Lay out your cloth diaper and measure two ribbons a little longer that the diaper.

You can always trim these later on. These will be sewn along each seam of your diaper.

Pin your ribbon down along the seams of your cloth diaper to hold it in place.

Now to the fun part, you get to crank up your sewing machine!

You'll sew down one side, turn & then sew up the other side.

Trim your ribbon if you need to.

There you go! All done!

{How easy is that?}

Then fold them up & stack them on top of each other.

I used some extra ribbon to tie a bow around them.

Added a cute tag & that was it!

A {cute & easy} baby shower gift that you know will be used a bunch!

I'd love, love, love to have you stop by Ginger Snap Crafts.

Each week I have a super fun link party called

{wow me} wednesday.

Love to have you link up your fun projects & ideas.
You can also check out my blog for some more {cute & easy} projects.

Thanks, Ginger! I have some burp clothes similar to those and they are darling, super absorbent and cover a lot of area in the case of spit ups! I love them. Take a look at Ginger Snap Crafts. You will like what you see.
