I've been working long and hard on lots of baby projects and I finally feel like I'm coming to the end of this long journey! Don't get me wrong. I love crafting. I love sewing. I love babies. But boy would it be nice to be able to work on some non-baby-related projects! Halloween is just around the corner and I had big plans! Until I everyone I knew got pregnant and now all my energy is focused there.
Anywho. Enough whining from me. Let me show you the cute burp cloths I whipped up!
Such pretty fabrics! ♥:o)
Here's what it looks like opened up.
The back is terry cloth. Don't you just love the cupcake fabric??
I made six of these in less then an hour. Three for Sister and three for Sister-in-Law. Then I rolled them up, and tied them together in sets of three, wrapped in some ribbon.
This project is super simple! Perfect for a quick and cute baby gift. No need to be an expert sewer to do this!
I just cut out some rectangles from my fabric and terry cloth. You do this in whatever size you want. I cut mine to be 11x21. I wanted them to be big enough to cover the shoulder well. No one likes spit up on their clothes!
Then, I laid my fabric and terry cloth right sides together and pinned. I sewed around the edges leaving about 1/4 inch seam allowance, and leaving a 5 inch opening on one side of the burp cloth. I pulled the fabric right side out and ironed it flat.
Lastly, I sewed around the edge of the burp cloth to close the opening and secure the fabric together.
Presto! Burp cloths!
So next time you're invited to a baby shower, consider making some of these instead of running to the store. I mean, you can never have enough burp cloths, right?
