Intro: Making a 'burp' Cloth
Burp cloths are needed in abundance with little babies around and cloth diapers are a favorite since they are made to absorb and to be washed again and again.
I bought a ten pack of diapers for about $6 and decided to 'dress them up' in order to give them as baby gifts.
I used the dedicated embroidery machine at the Tech Shophttp://www.techshop.ws for this project.
the first thing was to wash and dry the diapers. Then I picked out my design (I found it on line for about $1.50) I made my color choice. Happily, the Tech Shophttp://www.techshop.ws provided both spools of thread from their communal thread box.
I hooped the diaper using a tearaway stabilizer on the back
I watched the machine do its magic
I snipped threads and decided to add a grosgrain ribbon to both ends. And now for about $1 worth of materials I have a sweet present for the next baby shower or grand baby.
