If you want to make something for a new baby, but don't have time to stitch a quilt or knit a sweater, we've got two quick projects that are cute AND useful. They're also a fun way to mix and match some of the adorable new fabrics we've got at Home Ec! In this class you'll make a baby bib and burp cloth set, using quilting cotton for the front and flannel or some of our fantastic organic cotton fleece for an absorbent back that's perfect for wiping messy mouths.
Skill level needed: Advanced beginners welcome-you must know how to thread and use a sewing machine. Depending on your experience level, you may have time during the class to stitch a stack of burp cloths. Tied in a bow with bibs in coordinating fabrics, these makes an adorable and much appreciated present.
For each bib and burp cloth you need a front (quilting cotton) and back (flannel, terry cloth, cotton chenille, etc.). Two half-yard cuts-one of quilting cotton for the front AND one of the absorbent back fabric for the back will make three burp cloths or four bibs or a combination of both bibs and burp cloths. To mix and match, you will want to use a variety of quilting cottons. Large "scraps" (minimum of 10" by 17") can be used for the front of both bibs and burp cloths. Trims and rickrack can also be added. The choice is yours!
Please bring a basic sewing kit and thread. Items are also available for purchase at Home Ec.
