Baby burp cloths make wonderful and practical gifts. They are super useful and can be used in many ways.
I made them as gifts and want to make for my little one too and it is one of the first baby projects I took up. The burp cloths I have done before for my niece and nephews and couple of other friends babies were just basic rectangle ones.
However, this time I wanted to try a new pattern and I must say they were absolutely great and super handy and I still use them and they are always there in my diaper bag.
They are lot of fun when sewn up in cute flannel prints. The curve helps to stay on your shoulder while burping and also easy to wrap around baby’s neck as a bib 🙂
My mom loved them so much that she always had one on her shoulder ready before burping baby S 🙂
They can be made in cotton or flaneel. Flannel are my personal favorite becoz they are soft on new born’s skin.
You get 2 burp cloths from half yard of flannel using same fabric front and back. I love to use different prints front and back so you can use the half yard for 4 burp cloths.
So let’s get started –
The fabric is from Joann, make sure to wash and press the fabric before using. I have used a free pattern available on pinterest, pick the one you find it easy to follow.
Cut the flannel fabric (front and back) per the pattern and pin them together on the worng side leaving a gap along the opposite side of the inside curve. That opening is to flip the cloths right side out.
Sew the edges leaving the opening. Once sewn cut off the excess fabric and flip the burp cloths right side out.
Fold the excess fabric of the opening inside the burp cloth and pin them together and make a top-stitch all along the burp cloth.
Isn’t that quick, easy and great baby gift!
See you all in my next post!
