snowy day project - cloth baby wipes

This was the view today from my "new" studio window, but more on that "new" part later. It was a day to scrap everything I had planned and focus on a little project for my newest little nephew.

It was another snowy day a few weeks ago when we traveled to North Carolina to meet him for the first time.
I think he loves his sewing auntie already.

I had started the little guy out with a stash of cloth diapering wipes for his baby shower. However, no matter how many you can always use more. A little request from his Mama had me back at it.

I love flannel and coffee on a snowy morning, don't you?

I used a thrifted sweatshirt for the textured side. 
I like the terrycloth sweatshirts best.

My stack of 7" X 7" squares.

Ready to stitch.

Now ready to serge. 

And done.

Doesn't it sound like I whipped these up in an hour. It actually took all day. Between my toddler and his grandparents and a husband home from work early there were plenty of interruptions.

I used the sweatshirt drawstring to bundle them and I think they look pretty cute. I'll have to remember this trick in the future.

What a great way to spend a snowy day and probably the most relaxing thing I've worked on in weeks.

Hooray for snowy days!
