Burp Cloths

I've always wanted to find a way to have sewing be my job.  As a stay-at-home-mom I already have a full time job, so selling my work is now an extra way to help our family.  When I saw how excited moms got over "pretty" burp cloths, I realized they would be a great fit for me.  The inventory is rather straight-forward, I could play with fabrics and I could use my embroidery machine.  And who doesn't love something with their baby's name on it?  Best of all, it's something I can make in a way that works with my family's schedule.  Added bonus:  I get to make samples and use them for my son!

Aren't they pretty?

Lately I've been working on some custom burp cloths that I plan to post about, but I thought I should show my "basic" burps first.  I use two, coordinating fabrics for each set and offer 8 options for now:

These were so fun to shop for!

I make one burp with a vertical strip and baby's initial, and one burp with the two fabrics horizontal that has baby's name on it.

I also started making burp cloths with appliqued designs on them, so there are choices for those who don't know the baby's name yet or who want to match a theme.  We have a jungle theme in our nursery, so I love this little guy:
