DIY Burp Cloth Cupcakes REPOST

Shop BabyBunch.com Today! Remember the posting I did way back when on burp cloth cupcakes?  I’ve decided to repost it, because I came across the cutest shop that actually sells them!  Not mine, but ones that aren’t DIY and are super adorable.  Because not everyone can be all about the DIY.  And… to be honest the cupcakes took me quite a while to make, so I would probably just purchase them from here on out.  😉   Baby Bunch is the place to get the baby gift cupcakes: blue_pj_cupcakes

But also lollipops made out of rompers:

Now if you are up for the DIYer challenge then here you go… Back in the fall (of 2010) I helped my mom throw a baby shower for my sister-in-law.  Well, I guess I should start with something from a few years back.  When Banjo was a baby he spit up a lot.  It was seriously out of control.  Thank goodness for hardwood floors!  One thing that I learned fast was when it came to burp cloths the prefold cloth diapers made the best ones.  My mother-in-law sent me a tonof prefolds that she embellished with printed grosgrain ribbon.  Perfectly absorbed and perfectly cute!  So going back to the fall when I helped with the baby shower for my SIL…  I knew that  I wanted to make her some burp cloths using prefolds.  I also knew that I wanted to make them look cute for presentation and using my favorite among favorites… FABRIC!  So I created some burp cloths that incorporated all of the above!   In addition to the prefold cloth diapers and fabric I used these supplies:      – corrugated scalloped bulletin board border – thin ribbon – decorative long pins – felt – rubber bands I started by cutting a piece of fabric slightly larger than the center of the prefold diaper.  Then ironed the edges of the fabric in to make the seam creased for attaching to the prefold.     Using pins to secure fabric down the center of the prefold: Sewed around the fabric edge:   The finished burp cloths: Ready for creating a cupcake… First, fold the thin part of the diaper in on the fabric (or under if you would like the fabric to show in a swirl at the top of the cupcake):     Then fold in half (long ways) again:   Roll up like you would a sleeping bag: Secure with a rubber band: Cover around rubber band with the corrugated boarder:   Add on a felt flower with the long pin in the center:     Tie around a ribbon: Voila!  A Cupcake Burp Cloth! If you choose to fold the burp cloth with the fabric showing then you will get the swirl effect for the “icing”. These were fun to make and worked great for decorations on the cake table!

Babies always seem to come in groups, and we had a group of babies arrive to our area in December.  Three sweet babies were born within a week of each other, and it so fun to watch them all grow and now start to interact with one another.  The best part, though, was that I had agreed to watch two of those babies’ older siblings while their moms and dads went to the hospital, so I had the special privilege of seeing those sweet babies when they were just days old and on their way home for the first time.  I loved getting to snuggle those swaddled babies!

My first son was born at 35 weeks and was in the NICU for a week before he could go home, and I was a scared first-time mom who realized very quickly that being the oldest in your family of four and vaguely remembering your youngest sibling coming home right after you turned seven years old (as I was!) did not prepare you nearly as much for bringing home a baby as being the youngest of five and being old enough to do something to care for your nieces and nephews (as my husband was) does.  Although I babysat all through high school, this swaddling was foreign to me and seemed to be both an art and a science.  This instructional label would have been so helpful four and half years ago!
