Five More Burp Rags

I'm not real sure why I enjoy making these burp rags, but I made five more of them yesterday.  I think these turned out really cute.  I wanted to make two of them for a baby gift (I know, another one!) and figured I'd cut up the rest of the material and make some to put in my Shop.I had just a small section of this fabric, so to work with what I had, a put together a light blue on the bottom third of the cloth. 

Here's the little girl frog that I made.  In my shop, I made two of these in the set.

The set includes a boy swimming for one of them.  I made one each of the girl and boy for the gift.

I used terry cloth with this set.  Two of the set have white terry and one has grey (just what I had on hand, and both look good with them.)  I am finding that the white terry cloth that you buy by the bolt at Wal-mart is a lot thinner than what you get if you buy a towel.  So I am going to try using the towels, because I think they will last longer and be better quality.  I looked at Goodwill today at some brand new towels and they were selling them for $6 a piece!  I'm going to have to keep my eye out, as that's not really a great price for material!

 Across the seem and used decorative stitching to attach the yellow looped ribbon.  I think it really ties everything together.

Please let me know what you think.  I priced them at $13.50.  I have such a problem pricing things, so I would love to hear your input on this.  I've looked at a lot of people's things, but can't really decide!
