Amy Butler Soul Blossoms Burp Cloths

Daughter Katie's, best friend since third grade, who is also a Katie......is having a baby girl next month.  Two weekends ago was her baby shower.  My Katie wanted lots of pretty things made up for her friend Katie G.  So of course I had to oblige!  Earlier in the month we sent Katie G. to Etsy.com to pick out her fabrics.  She chose some beautiful floral prints by Amy Butler called Soul Blossoms.

I made a changing pad (mini quilt), six burp cloths that matched the quilt, a Valentine's Day onesie, a necklace onesie with matching burp cloth and five "squishy" burp cloths made with various prints and backed with either minky stripe, minky dot or minky solid....

These little mini quilts are perfect for keeping on the back of the couch or tossing in a suitcase to take on a trip or folding up and squeezing in the diaper bag.  They make the perfect on-the-go changing pad.  I cut out forty two 5 inch squares and arranged them in a pattern so no two of the same were touching.....
and used the pink blossoms as the backing.....
Katie G. loved all her handmade gifts and so do I.  Someday I will have to make some up just to keep for myself!



I'm calling these "squishy" burp cloths until I come up with a better name.  They fold up small and can be tucked into dad's back pocket or mom's purse.....

The matching burp cloths that go with the changing pad were made using Gerber's 6-ply pre-folded cloth diapers.....
