My sweet friend Nicki is having a baby girl ANY DAY now. I talked to her the other week and asked her if she had made a car seat canopy yet. She chuckled and said "No" in a way that told me it was probably the last thing on her mind. She's got a lot going on, so anyway, I told her to expect one in the mail. I might have suggested it would be purple, but when I saw this fabric, I knew I had to make it orange...and can I tell ya, I absolutely LOVE using the ric rac. So.dang.cute.
I also used snaps, instead of a decorative button.
I also love the cute orange polkadot material on the inside.
I've got a tutorial coming tomorrow, on how to make these. They are so easy to make, and I love them because they are so pretty to use! I mean, spit up is pretty gross, but I'm completely convinced that these cute burp rags totally make up for it! If you don't have a baby that spits up, you might just wish you did, just so you can use these burp cloths.
So I suggest making tons and tons. Then, you can drop them off at the doorstep of a new mommy.
Or you can give them to your own baby, who will be thrilled!!
Or you can divide them up and mail them out to all your sisters who are having babies....which is what I did.
