Child Decorated Burp Cloths

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that burp cloths are one of my favorite baby shower gifts.  They're easy, inexpensive, and they're rarely a "duplicate" gift...at least not at the showers I go to.

So we came up with another variation...

Firecracker's birth mom is due with a baby girl next month, so I was trying to figure out something that Firecracker could make for her half-sister.

I sewed the burp cloths and then handed them over to Firecracker with a sharpie and let her do some decorating.

I think they turned out pretty cute, and Firecracker was happy to get to decorate them herself.

She drew Alanna (her birthmom) and her husband, herself, and the new baby.

And of course they got wrapped up with some brown paper and scrappy wrapping (see here for other scrappy wrapping ideas).
