If you’ve been a follower for awhile you may have noticed that my crafting/blogging was a little neglected earlier this year. Well, I’ve been working on a big project that has required a lot of my time and energy. This is how it’s coming along.
Me at 20 weeks. Please excuse the messy hair.
We recently found out that we are expecting a boy and we’re ecstatic! Only thing is, there isn’t a lot of cute boy things to make. When we found out we were expecting our daughter a couple years ago, I went crazy making her tutus, hair bows, wipe cases, dresses, etc. Then I remembered seeing tie onesies on etsy and I knew I had to make some.
I made two different burp cloth styles and used two different tie patterns.
Do you see how the top of the tie is straight instead of curved like in the first picture?
I found the patterns here and here by simply searching google. The second link has a great tutorial on how to make the tie onesies. The burp cloths are really easy to make. I used prefolded cloth diapers and folded the edges over and top stitched. If anyone needs a tutorial please let me know and I’ll get one up.
I plan on making a lot more boy things and will be posting on here as I make them. Also, can anyone recommend a great website to buy fabric from? I’ve only purchased fabric from our local Joann’s but would love some more options. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have. Have a great weekend everyone!
Check out these link parties that I’m participating in!
