If this works ... I'll be excited!

I had a little sewing time tonight and I have been wanting to try this for awhile. The serged that I borrowed is not user friendly so I went with just the regular sewing machine.

I took a receiving blanket on one side and cut a osocozy flat in half for the other side. Sewed them together


cut off those darn hemmed bumps


Pad folded into a Grovia cover on the smallest rise setting


folded in fourths to create 10 layers of absorbency (flannel on one side, cotton on the other)


Really really trim!


Plan to see how it stays together in the wash!

If it works, I will make a bunch to use on baby #2! Yeah - wish me luck

Very clever. Can't wait to see how they wash up.

I am not sure from the photos, but you will need to at least run a zigzag stitch over the edges if they are not serged or turned/topstitched. Otherwise they will start fraying after the first wash.

Yup, just run a zig zag stitch around the edge unless its turned and top stitched, both flannel and the Birdseye will fray at the edges a lot. You can also cut the edges with pinking shears.
