Polka Baby

I needed something else to go with a baby gift so I made some sweet little burp cloths for my niece's baby-to-be....


My niece said, "Look Mom, at the polka dots."
"Oh, aren't they cute."
Everyone at the shower is agreeing -- oh yes, so cute.


THEN a BIG Squeal -- "Look Mom, there are skulls on them!"

I got a chuckle out of it. I knew she'd like them. She loved them.
The grandma-to-be didn't.
Oh, it's always good to make your sister-in-law roll her eyes.
The flannel is Goth Baby & Dumb Dot Polka Dots from Michael Miller. It comes in pink too :-). I have a little bit left in the store.

  6. Love 'em! I made a clutch bag out of some fabric with little skulls and the crossbones were knitting needles. I blogged about it and called it cute. My Mom made sure to e-mail me about her disapproval. I had a big eye roll as well!!

  8. Lining -- I don't line them with anything. It's just two pieces of flannel together.

  11. Those are so cute! I love the skull fabric. It's just enough rebel to still be cute. I might have to get some of that for jammie pants for the boys. I hope you are having a good day!
