Turtle Burp Cloth

I cannot believe how long this burp cloth took me. I have very little experience with applique, but decided I'd love to make this cute turtle on a burp cloth. It's a store-bought cloth diaper, so I didn't make the entire thing, just the critter out of scrap fabrics and then added the light green binding around the edge (leftover from the Tulip Quilt). It took sooooo long - well over an hour for something that my child will literally be vomiting on. That just cracks me up.


I have some other ideas for embellished burp cloths, but I'm not sure if I'll try again and see if I can speed up the process. I may as well have just made a quilt! :) Funny.

Well done on the perseverance though and completing it!
