Sewing Projects - Simple Burp Cloths
Not the most creative project ever, but I think pretty cute and you can never have too many burp cloths with a new baby. I especially like these because they are shaped and you won't have a bunch of fabric gathered up around your neck. The cotton print on one side is cute and cheerful and can be customized to any personality and the cotton jersey side will be soft and great for wiping mouths and dirty little noses. I just wish I had found this pattern when Allie was a little bitty!
The pattern is from HERE. It's cut on the fold and honestly it takes no fabric what so ever. I used some brand new men's tee shirts I had on hand from another project and did buy some new material for the opposite side as I really didn't have anything that screamed "baby boy." I think I sewed up 6 in no time at all and if you aren't as obsessed with everything being perfect like I am then they will go even faster. I did make a couple of changes as I'm not real interested in frayed edges that the original pattern has, so I simply sewing right sides together, left an opening to turn it right side out, gave it a good press and then top-stitched around the entire thing to finish off. Pretty simple and I did the entire thing on my 1948 Singer 99.
Hope you are having a great day my lovelies!
