Just wanted to share this idea for using your old linens. Remember to look for linens that have holes or stains. You can usually buy them for quite a bit less, and you don't have the guilt factor of cutting up something that is perfectly usable on it's own. Just cut around the hole or stain. I also have a fabulous "recipe" for getting ugly stuff out of linens. If you're interested, just let me know and I'll post it sometime. Of course, good old Texas sunshine does a wonderful job getting yellow spots out any time.
I created these for a customer of mine on Etsy - a little taggie blanket and a burp clothe and/or changing pad. I love using bits and pieces of chenille for baby items because they are so soft.
