Pinterest Thursday: Burp Cloths

A coworker of Handy Andy's recently had a baby and they had a shower to which Handy Andy said "I'll just buy them some diapers for a gift." Um, no. What a perfect opportunity to explore Pinterest and get some ideas for a baby shower gift!

I found this tutorial for handmade burp cloths:

This project looked quick and easy, so I went to the dollar store and got a few white hand towels. I followed the tutorial using the towels and some green fabric I already had. I only used one towel for two burp clothes, so this project only cost me $1!

The lines aren't perfect, but these are really cute and they were so easy! I added them to a basket of other goodies in pink and green. Here's what I ended up with:

Happy Pinning and crafting!
