Little Homemaker project Baby Wipes, Wash cloths, wipe up cloths etc.



Baby Wipes, Washcloths, Wipe up cloths etc.

Flannel works so nice for these cloths

Choose some cute fabric of your choice 
My cloths were about 9 inch by 10 inch finished.
You will want to cut them slightly more so you can have some for the seams.

 
Fold the fabric in half putting the right sides together.
On the wrong side of the fabric sew the open seams together.
Leave a small open place so you can turn the fabric around.


Turn fabric around through open slot.


Cut the corner straight being careful not to cut past the stitches.
This will help the corners to lay flatter.


Carefully poke the corners so they get straightened out.


After you have it all laying nice and flat top stitch it all around the outside.


All done.


These make a great gift for a baby.
They can be used for baby wipes or wash cloths.
Cloth diapering mothers will appreciate a gift like this.
We use them as wipe up cloths around the house as well.
It makes cleaning fun for little homemakers.
Do you have a little girl you are molding into a little homemaker?
Let your little homemaker pick out some fun fabric that she likes, they can be her special cleaning or dusting cloths.

These are adorable and too cute! What a heartfelt and beautiful gift. I would hate clean messes up with them, but it's a great idea :) I envy moms who can sew since that is not my gift or it's not something I have tried or make time for :( Thanks for sharing this post on NOBH! :)

You used such sweet fabrics on these cloths, Angie. And you're right, it would be fun for little ladies to use them as they "learn to keep house." ;)

Thanks for linking to the party. Hope to see you next week.
