Baby Burp Cloths

This is the last thing I have currently made for the new granddaughter {countdown: 3 1/2 weeks away} ~ some burp cloths made from cloth diapers and flannel fabric.  This is a good project for beginners because it is all straight sewing.  It is also an inexpensive project because 1/2 a yard will do two burp cloths; even the cloth diapers {in a package of 10} are reasonably priced.

I got a package of cloth diapers from Walmart and some baby girl themed flannel fabric from Hobby Lobby {half a yard of three fabrics works for 6 burp cloths}.  I washed both the fabrics and the cloth diapers, as the cloth diapers will shrink up.

Then I very simply placed the wrong side of the flannel to one side of the cloth diaper, pinned, cut to size, left a small opening for turning, and sewed.  Clip the corners, turn, poke the corners out, sew the opening closed, and they are done and ready to give!

These make for an inexpensive, quick and easy gift, but, not only that, they make a must-have item look pretty.  And every baby needs a pretty burp cloth!

Tied up in a pretty pink satin ribbon, they are all ready to give to my daughter.

Looks like I've missed a lot of posts! Granddaughter!! Congratulations!!
I love the idea of these burp cloths. I always used a plain cloth diaper which worked so well but not very stylish!
