Burp or Dribble we have it covered!

Anyone who has had a baby knows how important burping is!
Any trapped wind can lead to really sad crying!
And, of course young babies are often a little sicky.
 You soon realise your shoulders become the exact target especially when you are just about to go out!
So Muslin sheets become your very best friend.
I was doing a bit of "blog hopping" and found this wonderful idea.


Well when we were in America I made a beeline for the nappy section and I have spent such a happy day making this little set!

All folded and ready to go!
But, let's have a closer look at the ones I made.
Three with Hungry Caterpillar fabric!

And three with pirates!

It is only 16 weeks until our Grandson is due to arrive .
Of course he won't burp,dribble or be sicky but he can enjoy looking at the pictures!!
The fabric came from Ebay in case you want to make some.
I have not found pre-folded nappies in the UK but I think they would be good with soft teatowels
or small Guest Towels.

So Thank You Chickpea for such a brilliant tutorial.


  1. Lovely idea, Linda, and the tutorial is great. I've just been looking at the list of books you'd like to read; I've read the last seven and they are all brilliant! Forever Amber is my all-time favourite; Sky Burial stays with you for a long long time, and Accidental Tourist will make you look for all Anne Tyler's other books, too! I'm currently reading A Leaf in the Bitter Wind, by Ting-Xing Ye; it's a fascinating account about life in China. Another book I can thoroughly recommend is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon.

    Can't believe it's only 26 weeks until the baby is born! I'm sure it will be well provided for!


  2. Hi Kathy. Thanks for popping in! Actually I have corrected my mistake -- It's only 16 weeks until little Gilberto's is due to arrive!
    I have read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and found it very thought provoking. I have certainly met some children like that in school.

  3. I cant believe its only 16 weeks!! Eek! Love the Hungry Caterpillar!!!!

  4. These are brilliant and so cute. The time is really flying isn't it? :)
