Burp Cloths for Kylie

I'd say the best feedback from a gift is when the recipient orders more! Eureka has enjoyed the original burp cloths that I made for Kylie, and ordered three more. She let me design them myself, just requesting one with her name and one with a three-letter monogram. I had lots of fun coming up with them!

The first burp cloth has a stacked monogram. The "K" is from Five Star Font's Whimsy Dot. I added her name with Embird Alphabet #17.

The second uses a frame I bought last summer but haven't stitched out yet! I love the way it looks with this ribbon. The frame is from AK Designs Boutique, and I added the K with Embird Alphabet #17.

For the third design I used Monogram KK font from Sew Crazie Designs. The paisley accents are from a different frame from AK Designs Boutique.

I can decide which is my favorite -- I've settled on each one in turn. I love the way the dots match the ribbon in the first one, and the plaid in the hearts in the second, and the third is just so elegant. I'll bet Eureka was thrilled!

You don't know me but I was curious where you got the fantastic cloth diapers? The ones I've bought aren't that thick...I received one for a gift like yours and can't find them anywhere! Thanks for your help! Your stuff is so cute!!!

They are wonderful!

Love your burp cloths. I wish I would have seen your kind earlier. I am busy today making burps for a baby shower at church tonight for our 3 expecting Moms. Do you use anything on the back to cover up the embroidery?

Hi Terlyn! No, I don't do anything to cover the embroidery. I've seen lots of neat tutorials for adding fabric to the back and ends to create a more polished look, but frankly it's a lot of extra work... for a BURP cloth. :) So I haven't done that yet.
