I finished the "Burp Pads" today....

I just thought I'd share my traditional "burp pads" that I make for my girls when they have their first babies. They are very functional and the fabric is cute, but they are simply made. I just get 10" each of two coordinating flannels, and cut a long oval out of half the length of the fabric. This means I get two burp pads. I use quilters batting that is thin and simply sew the batting along with the flannel (right sides together) and leave an opening to turn it out to it's right sides. Then I just sew all the way around the burp pad to close the opening. I usually make a bunch more, but Chelsea got so many cute burp pads that my friends made and embroidered with their fancy machines, that she really didn't need any more. The bottom burp pad is made with flame flannel and those wonderful dingle balls in a shout out to her darling husband Dusty, who is a firefighter. That baby should be here soon!!! (She's probably getting last minute advice from our Man Upstairs.)
