Works for me Wednesday....easy ways to decorate your burp cloths!

Those that know me, know that I am a lover of all things consignment. If there is a sale somewhere, I am usually there!

Last fall, I went to a local consignment sale that had a couple bags of previously used burp cloths. You know, the old fashioned diapers. I snatched them up and saw that they were like new!

At that time, I didn't know if I was having a boy or a girl, but that didn't matter. All I knew was that I wanted to embellish them to make them just a little bit more decorative than the plain white that they were.

I finally got around to it last week! All I did was add some old vintage ric rac, ribbons and whatever I may have had to the edges, to create something new from something old. It didn't take very long and was very easy!

Here is the result:

Some of them have two or three stripes on one side, while others have one stripe on each edge. It makes them that much more special for my newest arrival!

Those are so cute! At my baby shower people decorated burp cloths with fabric paint. It was so nice to use them and think of the people who decorated them!

What a great idea! There is a Michaels craft store near me that always has baskets of ribbon on sale for a dollar. I could probably decorate a whole set for a baby gift.

You should go into business and sell these. They are absolutely adorable.
