One of the 'perks' of becoming and being a grandmother, is the privilege of time and skill to make something unique for a new baby!
If you are not as fortunate, I am hoping that this post will get your creative juices flowing!
Easy Applique Font (Bernina Embroidery Software V6) - or opt for applique patches to sew on
Embroider the motif with your machine or stitch the store bought motif on one corner of the towel diaper.
In my design, I used the same fabric as the bias for every second letter and matching thread for each.
Make and attach the bias according to this tutorial. I hand stitched my bias as I did not like the stitching on the bias.
If you are wondering why I did not use a bias maker in my photo's - I must confess, my craft room is a bit of a mess. We needed to store extra furniture and I am a bit frustrated with the looks of it at the moment! There you have it, nothing and nobody are perfect!
The theme for the baby shower was little elephants and because I love embroidering appliques, it was my first choice for this project.
My daughters prefer the bigger burp cloths especially if the little one is a bit bigger and makes more of a mess or messes!
