Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth

Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/other/elephant-walk-bib-and-burp-cloth/49218?fresh=true What are you most proud of? My first favorite thing is the satin tags attached to the burp cloths. My babies always grabbed onto my hair when they were on my shoulder and came away with mommy hairs stuck in their little hands. The ribbons should give a baby something soft to hold. I thought it was fun to add a burp cloth for the designated burper. Not all burpers are thrilled to toss something with flowers over their shoulder. :) I love my elephants. I bought several pieces of bright fabrics just two weeks ago thinking that I'd make a fun summer quilt from them. The inspiration for elephants came from a piece of baby fabric that's been in my stash for several years. I like the little guys so much that an elephant themed baby quilt will be my very next project and my new fabrics will get used quickly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination go and just have fun.

Very cute! Loving the built in fidgets for tiny fingers to coil---much better than hair or jewelry.

Oh, thank you! Now we need to find out if it works. Fingers crossed!
Shoestring asked:
Hello there my friend 2 strings. I love the shape of the burp cloth-- what a neat idea. Its been a lot of years since I've done any sewing for baby and I don't remember seeing things this cute before. Beautifully illustrated and sewn. Your original art work beats MS every day, all day long.

Shoestring, you know just how to make a person feel good on a cold and snowy morning. Thank you. I wish I had a ton of grandbabies, because I do love making baby things.
