Burp cloths and aprons

Even though I haven't been blogging a lot, there's been a lot of sewing happening.  My sister was going to a baby shower and requested a pack of neutral burp cloths since the mom wasn't finding out the gender.

 Aren't these fabrics the cutest. I got these at one of my LQS. I recently learned it is closing (Sew Smart in Doylestown for any locals) and I'm so sad. They always had the best selection of everything, but in particular, adorable baby and kid fabrics.

Some closeups.

My sister also requested a set of matching aprons for her and her son. At first I thought no problem! But then I realized how tough it was to find appropriate fabrics for mom and son to wear (son being 7). Sew Smart came through for me with this fun mushroom print.

For the pattern, I used a combination of this free Michael Miller reversible apron pattern and a favorite apron of mine for sizing.

Here are the two aprons together. They both seem happy with the results!

Doesn't it seem more and more local shops are closing, so sad! Your burp cloths are perfectly gender neutral and aprons and super cute!

I haven't been doing much sewing but I'm sad to hear that Sew Smart is closing. I had a daughter in November and was hoping to bring her there one day to pick out projects. I wonder if someone will try to buy it. Cute burp cloths!
