red hearts

Well, today I was able to check some more things off of my DIY to-do list :)
As I mentioned before, I really wanted to start sewing up burp cloths with some of my vintage sheet stash.  
Well...I did!

My dad had told me that he found a nice, big, self-healing cutting mat at a garage sale today and I figured that was my cue to bring over a sewing a project :)
While I was cutting sheets and terry cloth, my dad was embroidering little hearts on ribbon for a cute little personalized tag (totally his idea too).
Here are some photos of our progress:

And here are some photos of the ADORABLE burp cloths all finished up :)
They are so cute that I can't believe the purpose that they will serve one day involves spit up.

With the sheet of terry cloth that I had, I was able to make 10 of these today.  I could not be happier with the way they turned out.  I must say that my dad's little tags are by far my favorite part though :)  Plus I love that it was something that we did together.
Seriously friends, these were so quick and easy and cute.  I think that a few of these would make a really cute personalized shower gift for a friend a just a fun little sewing project for yourself. 
Either way, I can't stop staring at them!
Check back tomorrow for another little nursery peek!
