    Red face Shoulder spit cloths

    My BFF of 11 years just found out she is pregnant (after 2 years of trying, clomid, and IUF). I am so excited for her. I whipped these up today and I am planning out a flannel quilt out of the same and coordinating fabrics. She lives in Washington State right now so this is a way for me to help her out even though we are too far apart to visit right now.

    thanks everyone. I remember how much I love getting a bit rags and blankets when I had my twsin. And they turned out to be the most useful thing to have with the new baby. So I thought she would probably want the same thing.

    I call mine burp cloths. I make them all the time for baby showers. Flannel FQs works great for these. I trim the FQ, use the whole thing. Sew them right sides together, turn right side out, press, fold under the open ends, then stitch all the way around. JCY
