Awww.. babies.. how wonderful... They named him Shade, which is.. um .. different. I just think maybe he will get picked on later, but hey its not my kid... at least its.. ehh.. unique?
So, onto the project.
I took a wal-mart $4 towel and ONE washcloth from a $3 pack of 9 washcloths( i needed some anyways) and some quilt binding.. cut the ends off the towel while i embroidered the name and Oscar the grouch on the washcloth. When that was done, i hooped the towel( hard) and ended up starting the Oscar -in-the-can design on what ended up being the outside BACK bottom of the towel. I found a "Handmade for my special little boy" tag in a box of craft stuff from an auction, so i zigged that on also.
I then patched in an extra piece of towel to sew in on the inside so it doesn't scratch the baby... sewed quilt binding across the folded edge of the washcloth( again i did this so nothing is scratchy on the kiddo), and then placed the washcloth at the top right corner and pinned.
Then i just attached the quilt binding all the way around, mitering the corners and then done!!
Me ashamed of having a kid towel on my head, dont mind the bits of towel everywhere!
