Pink Butterflies

Last week, I found out a friend of my niece is expecting a little girl. And I was sooo excited to finally be able to make something girly. I immediately bought some pink fabric with butterflies on it and got to work. I made two burp cloths and two bibs, with the first letter of her name appliqued on each.  I used an inexpensive kitchen towel on the back of the bibs and inside the burp cloths for absorption.

I planned to put some little ruffles on the back of the onesie, but my 30+ year old sewing machine had other ideas. The more I tried, the more the onesie began looking a bit torn, so I opted for just putting more butterflies on the back as well as the front.

I'm looking forward to doing more girly things soon.
