Lincoln’s Baby Blanket + Burp Cloths

Lincoln's Baby Duvet

My newest nephew, Lincoln, arrived last week! How sweet is he?!?! 

So, Lincoln arrived just a smidge early. Normally, I’m a last-minute crafter staying up until the wee hours to finish handmade gifts. Thankfully, I was abnormally prepared for Lincoln’s birthday as I had stockpiled some baby gifts including a few organic cotton Super Quick + Easy Baby Quilts in anticipation for many upcoming baby showers.

Finn Loves Lincoln's Blanket

Lincoln’s big brother Finn enjoyed snuggling up for a game of peek-a-boo with Lincoln’s new blanket, too. Love those munchkins. . .

Lincoln's Baby Bundle

While the Super Quick + Easy Baby Quilt can totally stand on its own as a beautiful gift for expecting parents, I decided to add a few burpies to make a little baby bundle. Why not?! Cloud9 Fabrics has a fabulous tutorial on their blog for contoured burp cloths using organic cotton on one side and snuggly, more absorbent flannel on the other. You can find the free pattern here.

Contoured Baby Burpie

I used some fun organic cotton fabrics from Birch Fabrics’ Circa 52 collection to make a few for Lincoln. One fat quarter each of cotton and flannel will make two burp cloths. Or, you can go for the 1/2 yard of each fabric and make four. Because they’ll definitely be put to good use!

Organic cotton fabric, flannel, batting, and thread can be purchased in the Home Made shop!
