The Gift That Keeps On Giving (Burp Cloths & Wipes/Washcloths Gift Bundle)

Just A Few Of The Gift Bundles That I've Already Made
With all of this sewing that I’ve been doing on wipes and burp cloths it’s hard to stop. Once I get into the groove on something I just want to keep going. Then I had a great idea! I have so many friends that are pregnant and going to have babies within the next couple of months. What better gift to give than a custom package of wipes and burp cloths! Just a little something extra to give with each of my gifts.

My Sister Mandy LOVED her Burp Cloths and Wipes/Washcloths Gift Bundle

I decided to package each gift with five wipes/washcloths and two Deluxe Pocket Burp Cloths. This is the perfect quantity for me to be able to utilize my fabric cuttings without hardly any waste. I just need to purchase a half yard of a super cute flannel fabric and a half yard of coordinating terrycloth. When I’ve completed the wipes / washcloths and burp cloths I stack them all on top of each other, wrap them with a bow, and stick one of my custom labels on top. You can create your own custom label or gift tag using cardstock and a shape cutting hole punch. Voila! You have a super cute gift that any mommy or soon to be mommy would “Oooooooh and Aaaaaaaah” over. Just have fun with it, and don’t forget to post pictures of your creations on my Facebook page, or better yet a candid shot of your friend receiving your creation as a gift. I love to see those smiling faces.

  12. Selina - Haha! I photographed these right before I mailed yours out. I hope you like the colors. I probably should have asked what your fave colors were first. I'm kind of on a green kick lately. : )

    Yeah, bummer about the name being taken. I'm trying to think of another way to alter it but still make it easy to remember.

  22. Jill - Believe me, my first ones did not come out cute at all. By the 3rd or 4th one I had the hang of it. You should totally give it a try.

  23. What a great idea! I don't know why I haven't thought of it before lol. Did you use a serger or top stitch?
