A few weeks ago I got my kids pictures taken by a professional photographer in my area (Fitz Photography). I decided to make all of their outfits of course. First we did a more casual look and they all wore their cowboy/cowgirl boots. For the girls tops I used the Brownie Goose Hattie pattern and Art Gallery fabrics from the reminisce line. Art gallery fabrics are located here. My son's shirt was made with the Fishsticks camp shirt and Joel Dewberry Herringbone in Lake (now sold out) Sewing Mama Reanna's bumblebee dress pattern. This dress is this designers first pattern for sale and let me tell you it is fantastic. The directions were easy to follow and the fit was spot on. I used Riley Blake's Andrea Victoria Black Damask for the fabric. The fabric can be found here. I embroidered their monograms with a deep red thread so it would be sort of Christmasy. I also made my son a tie using this free tutorial I found through pinterest. I also embroidered his monogram in red.

Today I am going to share with you how I make minky backed burp cloths. When I use one of my blanket kits (non patchwork) I always have a little bit of leftover cotton fabric. I have just enough fabric to make a burp cloth and infant bib using my bib pattern. Extra minky and a scrap piece of warm and natural batting is all I need to make a cute gift set to go with the blanket. Safari Soiree Cheater fabric from Birch Organics and Charcoal minky from Shannon Fabrics to make the burp cloth shown in this tutorial.
