Surprisingly, it turned out adorable! And I may have to make her another. Little known fact, I only have flannel for the cloth wipes right now, so I cut up a pillowcase for fabric.
Here's the shape I started with...
I cut a trapezoid, the cut out the top corners for arm holes. Complicated, I know. Then I proceeded to make a pretty hemmed edges, except for the top, short line. That I hemmed an inch down and left it open on each side. That way I could run the ribbon through it, and tie it shut.
Cute, right?! And perfect for the hot, humid, sticky weather we have here during the summer. Even my husband is impressed, that's saying something. So I'm patting my back, and loving that I gave my little idea a shot. I'm loving it big time because it turned out better than I had hoped!
