One of my good friends is having their first child soon (she's due 4 days after me) and her baby shower was this weekend.
So this past week was spent making a few things for her sweet baby boy.
I asked her if she had any requests for things she wanted me to make her and she suggested towels and washcloths. I had made some for another one of our friends a couple years ago and apparently she really liked them and told Karissa about them.
I just made basic hooded towels, flannel on one side and terrycloth on the other. I think they were about 30-31". The washcloths are the same, just simple squares and finished around 9".
Have you ever tried taking pictures of towels and washcloths? It just wasn't working out so well for me that day. I made a set of 2 towels and 4 wash cloths and just could not get a decent picture! I've decided that is what has been slowing down my blogging lately. It hasn't been for a lack of sewing, just the lack of desire to take pictures!
I also made her a set of burp cloths. I usually just make them from pre-fold cloth diapers, but I saw a tutorial on Made where Dana used chenille and I thought I would try it that way instead. Other than the annoyance of all the fuzzy bits flying around, I really like how they turned out.

I actually didn't get to go to her baby shower, since we had three baseball games that day, but it all turned out OK as Wyatt's team are the Summer League champions! And you know what else that means? Baseball is over for the year!! We still have a couple T-ball games and a week of swim lessons, but after that our days should be a little more free. Can you feel the joy?
