Baby Burp Cloth

by Aimee

If you’re looking for a quick, simple and fun baby gift, look no more. This video will show you how to make a burp cloth using 2 pieces of flannel.

(2) 1/2 yard pieces will yield two burp cloths.

Make a template that looks like a peanut. I like using freezer paper because it will iron to my fabric so I can trace with-out it moving everywhere, but you can use regular paper if you don’t have some on hand.

Place flannel right sides together. Trace peanut shape to the wrong side of the flannel and cut the pieces out. Add pins to keep the pieces together. Sew the pieces together using a 1/4″ seam leaving a 2″to 3″ section opening for turning. Back tacking at the start and finish to keep the opening from raveling.

Before turning, snip around the curves to make it easier for the fabric to turn.
Turn, and press. Top stitch using an 1/8″ seam closing the opening.

Thanks for watching!

Thanks! I made some recently for a baby gift. I used monkey fabric on one side and solid on the other. ON the solid side, I machine embroidered a monkey and the baby’s initials. it turned out great!

So great to “see” you again and to learn that you are working at MaryJo’s. I shop there often and next time I am in there I will look you up.

Our neighborhood ladies have a once-a-year baby shower where we donate baby gifts to a charity. I will make some of these burp cloths for the next one. Thanks.
