Confessions of a sewing addict!

Well, its official. I am heavily addicted to sewing.

I love it. I love choosing fabric. I love finding fun patterns. I love when I make something for the first time and it works... perfectly!

My most recent feat is burp cloths for my cousin's baby shower. She doesn't know the sex of the baby, so I went with generic, colourful fabric.

I purchased the terry towelling at Spotlight off the roll and pre-washed it all- didn't want flecks of white towel all over my sewing room.

They are all straight lines (my preference in sewing ;) but they look really effective and, of course, they are super-practical- when it comes to babies, there is always an excess of fluids!

I was going to post this a few days ago before I remembered that it was a SURPRISE baby shower (it was her last trip over from Perth for my uncle's 60th- Happy Birthday Uncle Kevin- before bubs arrives, so we had to make the most of the opportunity ;)

She was most impressed, as were her crafty friends- one of whom makes modern cloth nappies for a living- so I felt pretty chuffed :))

Back to the sewing machine.
Love Gubby xo
