Burp Cloths

Our fifth grandson is due this week! I’m ever so excited to meet Tiny E. Daughter #1 asked me to make some burp cloths for him.

These are so easy. You can probably find a free pattern online. I can’t remember where I got mine, I’ve used the same one for years. Mine is made out of freezer paper. I just place my two pieces of fabric right sides together and press he temp,and so it adheres to the top layer.

Then I sew around the pattern, using the edge of the freezer paper temp,ate as a guide.

Then trim away the excess fabric.

Turn right side out and press.

Then I top stitch close to the edge which also closes the opening I left for turning.

And there you have it! In no time at all I had nine burp cloths made.

Have a great day!

    How clever! I usually trace my template. This belongs in the “why didn’t I think of that category?” Thanks for sharing.

  2. Congratulations. I hope you get some baby snuggles.

    Looks like I have the same question as others have — what fabric did you use? Your fabric choices are cute. I make bibs with long sleeves, but think the burp cloths would be good to make also. I will have to look for a pattern.

  5. Those fabrics are darling; are they knit? I’m looking forward to hearing that Tiny E has arrived! I’m sure you are too!
