More burpers for a sweet baby Charlotte:
I have several more sets to make--one for a charity auction that close friends are organizing, and two more sets for friends. I'm thinking about switching from embellishing cloth diapers to constructing the entire burper myself. I have a ton of fabric odds and ends that would make cute patchwork burpers.
Whenever I use my machine to embroider, Will is fascinated as the machine whirrs and stitches, seemingly, by magic. He insists on crawling up on the chair for a better looksee/grabsee, so I have to pull it away from the table. Which makes him screech and makes it loads of fun. To appease him, and because I'm a big ole softie whenever I see tears on his chubber cheeks, I decided to see what I could make with him on my lap. Results? Lopsided scrappy heart hangtags for Valentine's Day packages--we decorate cookies every year. The cards were inspired by Dana over at Made. Hers are so lovely. I think I'll try this again without a 22-month old on my lap. Though I did get a sweet hug from Will during our crafting. Until it was over, that is, and the protest by screeching resumed.
Since Charlie is still working up a storm, I have more time than normal in the evening for crafting. I look forward to Craft Hope opening up for donations again as I'd like to donate something. Be sure to check out their site and read about their amazing efforts--and also shop the Craft Hope Etsy shop (all items are donated by crafters and 100% of the proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders).
