I can say I've had grand plans to make a ton of cute things for the baby that I've seen on blogs or pinterest. Guess how many I've done? Yep, one.
I have a little over 10 or so weeks left and I barely just started trying to get a nursery area set up in Finley's room. I guess part of it is that I had to paint 2 dressers and the inside of the closet. After all the painting I've done in the last year the idea of painting anything makes me want to curl up in a ball and take a nap.
I decided to start out my nesting with a quick little sewing project I saw on Dana's blog Made. With Finley I made some of those cute little burp rags where you sew cute fabric onto a gerber pre-fold diaper. While I liked those a ton I wanted to try something a little different with this baby.
The new ones are just flannel on one side with chenille on the other side. I did sandwich another layer of flannel in the middle to boost absorbancy. For the middle layer of flannel I cut up a bunch of Finley's old swaddle blankets which I thought was a rather touching idea.
Oh, and the reason I made a ton of them is that Finley was a huge spitter upper and we went through a gazillion rags a day with her. So if this next one is anything like her I will be prepared.
Just a little reminder picture of Finley the spitter upper. This image is both a bit fascinating and disgusting at the same time.
Ok, sorry about that. Here are the cute little burp rags I made.
