How to Make Over a Baby Gift: Peas in a Pod


February 25, 2013 by CassieCravings

Baby washcloths are a great gift for new moms. The are practical, reasonably priced and come in multiples.

A great way to spruce up a package of washcloths is to make them over into peas in a pod.

Materials Needed

1. 4 washcloths per pea in a pod

2. rubber-bands

3.  clear elastic hair ties


Step 1: roll up 3 wash cloths and secure each one with a rubber-band. 20130225-104352.jpg

Step 2: Spread out an unused washcloth (This is washcloth number 4.).

Step 3: Once the 4th washcloth is flat, line up the 3 rolled up washcloths.

Step 4: Pull the sides of the flat washcloth around the rolled up washcloths to create at the pod for the peas.


  5. Secure each side of pod with a clear hair elastic band.   20130225-104442.jpg

    I added the peas in a pod to a gift basket. The basket isn’t anything special, a few onesies and a couple pair of socks, but the peas in a pod give it a fun touch.

    This is such a cute idea!

  2. I love this… So cute! Presentation can make such a difference, and of course you really can’t have too many baby washcloths.

    I think there may be a problem with your email subscription service. This post was in my email but the link just took me to a this page can’t be found page. i got to read it by going directly to your homepage. There was another post today (or maybe it was in my inbox from yesterday?) that I also couldn’t access. That one doesn’t seem to be on your homepage though so perhaps you yourself have removed it? Anyway, I just thought I’d give you a head’s up in case others might be having this problem as well.
