This post is part of the virtual baby shower for Abby from Things for Boys! She is due to have her baby boy in the next few weeks so some of her friends around the blogosphere have joined forces to make and share some gorgeous handmade newborn gifts. Best part - because I live so close to Abby I am the lucky one who gets to deliver them all in person! (Edit: I delivered them this afternoon! She was very shocked and excited. It was lovely to be there - I wish everyone else could have been there too!)
To make 4-6 liners, you need at least a metre of a flannelette print (or cotton) and 1 metre of towelling. Personally, I find the towelling at my local store expensive and poor quality, so I bought a large white bath towel that was in the clearance area of the manchester department.
Stitch your liners, leaving a hole for turning. Trim your edges.
You are done! Quick, simple and practical.
The flanelette is very soft and just gets softer with every wash - lovely for little bottoms. The towel is thick and absorbent and provides extra padding.
These liners could also double as burp cloths. Quilting cotton would be a great alternative to flanelette.
Congratulations Abby, Greg and Roman, I can't wait to meet your new little man!
Make sure you check out all the other beautiful gifts made for Abby by these other awesome bloggers!
