These burp cloths are ridiculously easy to make–seriously, if you can sew in a straight line, you can make these. They are so much softer and cuter than cloth diapers, and they make perfect baby shower gifts. Whip up several, and grab them whenever you need a quick gift. It’s homemaking, only streamlined.
To start, cut out your fabric. I like the minky fabric for one side and a cool patterned fabric for the other. Cut out 10″x16″ rectangles.
Put fabric on table. Place the minky side fabric right side up, and then place the patterned fabric on top pattern side down. Pin together. Sew the edges, leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance. Sew all four corners, leaving one side open about 1-2″ so you can turn the fabric right side out. Trim the corners at an angle as in the picture above to make for smoother edges. Once you have sewed all of the edges, you can trim off any excess outside the seam.
Turn the fabric right side out.
Iron all of the edges for a nice smooth finish. Then, pin the opening and sew it closed using clear thread. To give it a nice finished look, Sew two straight lines up the sides of rectangle giving it about a 3″ border.
Roll them, tie them with a bow, and practice saying, “your so welcome,” graciously in the mirror.
