Ruffles and Rainbows

Have you ever made something so pretty that it was really hard to give it away?  Well, yesterday I made the cutest and most amazing baby gift ever.  I almost cried having to part with it.  But I really do love giving presents, and I know my friend will love and appreciate them as much as I would have!

Here it is my RUFFLES AND RAINBOWS burp cloth set!

The Rainbow

My husband said, "But aren't babies supposed to spit up on these?  Then why are they pretty and have ruffles?"  I rolled my eyes.  Yes they are ruffly and gorgeous, but you can have a pretty accessory resting on your shoulder while getting spit up on!


Yellow and Green were combined.

LOVE the Blue!

Pretty Purple damask with ric rac.

Hair clip rosettes to match.

Packaged and ready for Little Miss Coles (Brother's girlfriend) to use upon her arrival!

I had a lot of fun decorating these burp clothes.  In fact I'm making a second set with all the left over fabric.  Which brings me to my weekend's great debate!  To Etsy or not to Etsy?!?  I really want to start, but I'm afraid to make the jump.  I am interested in selling personalized fabric party banners, party decorations, and the occasional perfect party gift!  Once I get my but in gear and put my daughter's birthday post up you will see my real passion!

Any Etsy advice?


  1. I think doing etsy could be great! You have such great creative ideas ;). My only caution would be not to get discourages if it takes awhile to get customers. You should talk to Shea about it. She's sold some jewelry and knitted things on etsy.

  2. these are so cute! i agree with your husband though, too bad they will have to get spit up on them! lol. Oh well. fashionable spit up now :)

    I'd love for you to link this up to my link party, Your Whims Wednesday!

  3. These are absolutely adorable!! I think you could definitely Etsy these!! :) I LOVE the attention to detail and the colors that you used. I'm off to follow you!


  4. Hi, just found your blog through the link party at Gluesticks. LOVE your burpclothes! I have been considering the Etsy move, also, but have not because I'm expecting next month... That said, I would definitely go Etsy! I've seen burp cloths at $8 each, and sets of 2 or 3 for $14 or $20 respectively. Those have monograms, though... Anyway, you probably knew all of that, but I thought I'd share! Good luck, and can't wait to start following your blog!

  5. What a fresh take on the burpie decor! I love it!! I also am loving your new blog layout, by the way. Super cute!! Thanks for linking up at The Little Birdie! I'm featuring your burpies on my Saturday Favorites! :)

  6. P.S. I'm no Etsy expert, but I would be happy to help if I can. For what it's worth, I think you would do GREAT with a shop on Etsy! :)

  7. I resell (mostly used items) alot (I'm just now getting to Esty..but not doing much). I think these would be awesome on there. Give it a try..its so cheap to sell on there, your not losing much if you try. And if you don''ll never know if you would have been successful..Go for it! These are super cute!
