REsults are in on latest burp cloths
I have told you how DD liked the burp cloths I made from left over 100% cotton flannel. [We had bought packages of cute burp cloths, but they are too tiny.]
Then a few weeks ago, she told me she has just given up using the store bought burp cloths as they are too small. Since she is in a condo and uses the building's laundry, she asked for more cloths to last her longer between laundry trips. So I bought some pre folded diapers at Target, including some print diapers (Gerber), and edged them with odds and ends of left over colored and white crochet cotten thread. (You could use yarn, but it is not absorbent like cotton crochet thread -- and this kid is a dribbler.)
DD reports that these are the best burp cloths yet. Since she uses paper diapers, she did not own any good ole reliable cloth diapers, but now she has them. The old ways often work best! So from now on, I will edge a few diapers to match layettes I make for baby gifts.
