Happy New Year!

First I would like to say that I hope that each of you has a wonderful New Year and that you can make good on whatever you resolve to do in the coming days, weeks and months!!




I made these little onesies and burp rags for my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting their first baby.  I got the idea (and even used one of the same fabrics because I loved it so much!!!) from Dawn McVey.  You can see hers HERE.  I liked her little star onesie so I decided to make my own using my Big Shot and the Stars #2 Originals Die.  I used some iron-on sheets on the back of the stars and then I sewed along the edges.  One is long-sleeve for when the baby is born and one is for the spring/summer when it will be a little warmer.  

The directions for making the burp rags can be found HERE.  They are three strips of fabric sewn together and then sewn to a diaper cloth.  They are fairly easy to make - but for those who are OCD like me, it takes a little time to get them done :)

I hope they like them!!!

I think the burp rags will be something I will continue to make in the future as baby gifts.  I want to get the flower die from SU! that layers the three blooms and try out some baby girl onesies.   Now I just need someone who's having a baby girl to make them for!!!  :)


  1. okay you, I am going to have to stop reading your blog LOL, I have been back and forth about the big shot, and now again I am back for it. Troy is going to kill me if I do not make a decision and stick with it. And even though I don't have the little little one, I could do it on little girl or boy shirts ha! I love the onsies - they are too cute! Hope you have a very Happy New Year, as we both could use a good one :0) Hugs to you and your family!
